4 and 5 Star Island is now listed for $40 million with Brett Harris of Douglas Elliman. The Lots can also be sold separately. In recent years 5 Star Island has been used for a number of business ventures including events and for rent offered by Douglas Elliman.
In August 2017 PROFILEmiami reported that Verena von Mitschke-Collande and Claudia Miller-Otto had won 4 and 5 Star Island from Thomas Kramer via court-ordered auction. Kramer played an integral role in the redevelopment of South Beach including Portofino Tower before he lost a $90 million settlement in Swiss Courts in 2003 in a legal battle that has continued to play out for decades.
