Vanilla Ice, the caucasian rapper from the 90’s, is receiving much heat from his neighbors after he removed some beautiful oak trees from the home he purchased on Hypoluxo Island.
Rob Van Winkle, that is, Vanilla Ice, is filming a renovation show, “The Vanilla Ice Project” on Hypoluxo Island. He intends to renovate it and then resell the property later on.
One of the trees that Vanilla Ice removed was a Banyan tree, which he had a permit to remove it. However, his neighbors were still upset over it. Furthermore, Winkle did remove live oak trees, which is not permitted. He was ticketed for violating Miami city code.
Winkle purchased the Hypoluxo property for $1.4 million. He called the home a “no-brainer” for his project, and hopes to sell it for $3.4 million in the future.
