Packer’s new pad

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - - NEWS - JONATHON MO­RAN

THE foun­da­tions have been laid for bil­lion­aire James Packer’s Mex­i­can mega­man­sion in the re­sort town of Cabo.

The Sun­day Mail can re­veal Mr Packer has com­bined three ocean­front blocks ad­ja­cent to the One&Only Palmilla re­sort to build a man­sion ex­pected to be com­pleted by 2020.

Mr Packer fre­quently stays in the re­sort’s ocean­front Villa Cortez, and it was the first place he vis­ited af­ter com­plet­ing re­hab in a Bos­ton psy­chi­atric fa­cil­ity last year.

Mr Packer’s friend and right-hand man Ben Til­ley is act­ing as project man­ager for the mul­ti­mil­lion-dol­lar home and was over­heard on Fri­day dis­cussing the project with a friend.

One of the three blocks was listed for sale last year for al­most US$7 mil­lion.

But while the com­bined blocks of­fer ex­pan­sive views of the Sea of Cortez, they also over­look a large pub­lic toi­let by the beach.
