A development property can take a lot of time and cash. Fortunately for its new owners, Grand Scrub Island has already done the heavy lifting. The 170-acre property in the British Virgin Islands is attached to Little Scrub Island, which is home to a luxury resort and spa affiliated with Marriott's Autograph Collection Hotels. Power has already been brought over via an undersea cable, and a desalination plant has been installed. Any new additions to the Grand Scrub can take advantage of the existing resort, restaurants, bars, and a full-service marina on the adjacent island.
