DNE partners and EB5 investors visited Riverwalk Resort which had its grand opening in August.  The construction was flawless, the staff were very professional and friendly, the restaurant was great and the resort was sold out the entire time we were there.  We are very appreciative of Mr. Dennis Ducharme for the opportunity to participate with him in the financing of Riverwalk and for his hospitality.  Riverwalk is a true winner!!.

Hurricane Grill & Wings opens second location in Chandler

AHWATUKEE – Walking through the front doors of Hurricane Grill and Wings’ newest Phoenix location is like stepping out onto a beach that lines Florida’s coast.

Although technically there is no sandy beach, you will see circular orange floatation rings on the wall, brightly-colored surfboard tables, beach-themed wooden signs, and a large shack that houses the bar. The dining room is very bright–from the multicolored chairs to the white-and-blue wooden paneling that lines the restaurant–but in a way that makes you feel like you’re on vacation.

Careful, you may not want to leave.

It brands itself as a wings place–as its name implies–but it boasts a typical American-style menu: wings, fried pickles, burgers, salads, and steaks.

Guests will find over 35 flavors for wings, including signature sauces like Raspberry Ice, Garlic Parmesan and Ancho Chile Lime. It also has dry rubs, like blackened Cajun, Smokey mesquite, Habanero lime or the trifecta, which combines all three.

Tied to its Florida roots, the restaurant menu has seafood dishes, including grilled shrimp, grilled Mahi and fish and chips.

General Manager Todd Gadow said the restaurant will cater to families looking to go out to eat, as well as to the sports guys looking to catch the game on one of their 12 flat-screen TVs.

“This is a place you come to have fun at,” said Gadow.

The ceilings are high and the flooring has the look of smooth concrete so sound travels easily. I noticed a bit of an echo from various conversations between the 15 or so employees who were there for a “soft” opening. It is worth noting that as the place fills up, it has the potential to appear louder than it is.

This is the second location in Arizona; the first one is located in Surprise and opened five years ago. This newest location is in Chandler along Interstate 10 and Chandler Boulevard.

It will celebrate its grand opening on Monday, Oct. 27.

The restaurant is next to a building complex, a hotel and a Denny’s. The parking lot butts up to Chandler Boulevard, but the entrance into the complex comes up quick so you may miss it on your first trip out.

The bar area has an Island theme and is well-lit by four huge skylights. You look outside almost expecting to see the ocean, but will soon realize lakes are scarce in the desert.

Appetizers range in price from $4.99 for chips and salsa to $11.99 for “The Perfect Storm” which has Firecracker Shrimp, fried pickles, boneless wings and garlic and parmesan fries. Entrees fare between $9.99 – $13.99.

Happy Hour is Monday through Friday from 3 p.m. – 7 p.m. That features drink specials and $5 appetizers. The bar features normal domestics, as well as local brews by Four Peaks and San Tan brewing companies.

The restaurant chain, which launched its flagship restaurant in April 1995, is in the process of building five more locations around the Valley. Specific locations weren’t known, but Gadow said the company has scouted locations in Scottsdale and Tempe. View website for info: http://www.hurricanewings.com .

The bone-in wings were meaty and a good size. The Gold Rush is a nice mix of honey mustard and a kick of buffalo sauce. The Parmesan Garlic is delicious if you want more flavor, than heat. Overall, the restaurant has the potential to bring something different to the area. It’s exact location is slightly off the main path, but not enough to deter customers.

Our newest EB-5 direct investment project, Hurricanes Grill and Wings, is set to open October 25, 2014.  This has been an great project and a great opportunity to introduce an exciting restaurant concept to Chandler, Arizona.  This has also been a unique immigration investment project.  We initially applied for and received, on behalf of the foreign investor, an E-2 visa to expedite the investor’s move to the US.  We received the E-2 immediately upon application.  We are now in the process of moving from an E-2 visa to EB-5 direct investment visa.  The EB-5 investor is pleased with the process as his family is now in the US, his kids are in school and he has teamed up with a local Hurricanes franchise that will allow him to complete the EB-5 direct investment process.  For more information, please do not hesitate me at:

Canada is killing a decades-old investor program that had allowed scores of wealthy Chinese to move to the country over the years.

The program allowed rich foreign investors to apply for permanent residency in Canada if they had a minimum net worth of 1.6 million Canadian dollars ($1.5 million) and invested 800,000 Canadian dollars in the form of a multi-year, interest-free loan to the government.

But the government has decided to scrap the program after finding it provided little economic benefit.

“For decades, it has significantly undervalued Canadian permanent residence, providing a pathway to Canadian citizenship in exchange for a guaranteed loan that is significantly less than our peer countries require,” the Canadian Ministry of Finance wrote in its 2014 budget report. “There is also little evidence that immigrant investors as a class are maintaining ties to Canada or making a positive economic contribution to the country.”

People who used the program paid less in taxes than other economic immigrants, and were less likely to remain in Canada for a longer period of time, the government said in a statement. In some cases, immigrant investors lacked official language proficiency. The government had previously suspended the program in 2012, leaving many applicants in limbo.

All 65,000 pending applications — which the government estimates would have taken six years to process — will be returned and paid fees refunded. About 70% of the backlog came from Chinese applicants, reported the South China Morning Post.

Georgia’s hottest export: Chopsticks!

Now, Canada plans to test new programs to seek “new and innovative approaches to business immigration that will better fuel the continued growth of the Canadian economy.” Another program that sought to attract entrepreneurs, halted since 2011, has also been canceled.

A number of other countries offer similar investor programs.

The U.S., for example, has a new program that allows foreigners to invest $500,000 in exchange for a green card. Cyprus is offering residency visas to anyone willing to pony up €300,000 ($405,000), and Portugal offers a similar deal for €500,000 ($675,000). For Australia, foreigners have to come with 5 million Australian dollars ($4.5 million).

In Greece, which has seen many of its young people depart for northern Europe, just €250,000 ($338,000) in real estate investment will result in a five-year residency permit
