Will Smith Backs Florida Hotel

A company that Will Smith owns is working on a proposal to take over a stalled project to build a minority-owned hotel in Broward County. The actor-rapper’s brother, Michael Peck, told the County Commission on Tuesday that their firm, Treyball Developments, is in the final stages of a plan to build the long-sought 500-room hotel, possibly without any cash from the county.

The project has been stalled since the county cut ties with the hotel’s developer.

Smith’s company has been involved in hotel projects before, including one in his hometown of Philadelphia.
