Wants to build 200-acre resort

Resort mogul to close on deal

By Jeff Bryan

In one week, Jim Gissy will close the deal on the remaining 91 acres of Rainbow River Ranch property still owned by Jerry Dodd and the Conversation Land Group LLC.

In doing so, the vice president for West Gate Resorts will own from the Rainbow River to Southwest 180th Avenue Road. But it’s not the only deal Gissy has in place, he said, explaining he is partnering with David Segal, the billionaire owner of West Gate Resorts. All told, the amount of acreage along County Road 484 totals more than 150 acres.
