Villa Maria Helena Holdings sold the 40,000 square-foot parcel on May 23, according to county records. Jeannette Varela was identified as the manager in the deed of sale.
The property is next to 27 Star Island Drive, the Star Island mansion. The Star Island mansion is currently owned by John Jansheski, founder and CEO of DenTek.
MIP 28 Star Island is the buyer of the adjacent property. The company is registered in Delaware, which does not reveal names of principals in their state corporate records. MIP obtained no financing for the purchase.
