Motwani family
What is the story behind this family? Where’d their money come from to buy up half of Canal street and the quarter?

re: Motwani family
Certainly someone on the OT has met this guy in person and/or done some business with him. I am anxious to hear that story actually.

re: Motwani family
Yeah this should be good.
I’ve heard his name for years but know next to nothing about him.
He has to be pretty politically connected

You ever heard of the 5 finger discount? One of the brothers can get a six finger discount.

He has a 30 -40 foot tall cylinder aquarium in his living room.

Dude is a trip and knows how to bargain.

That is all.

That house, for all their wealth, is one of the ugliest houses i've ever seen. Shocked it was allowed by the HOA. Of course they probably bought of the HOA

The son bought and renovated a house in the garden district which is actually extremely nice

good people? no

saavy and or shrewd business people? yes

between their family, Torres, and the guy that owns Tropical Isle, thats probably 60% of the property owners in the FQ/CBD sadly

re: Motwani family
I don't know in comparison to some large developers, but yeah he owns a fair amount and is expanding.

Not sure what his hotel holding are any longer. He seems to like entertainment venue type places right now.

Just the ones that stand out right now are Circle Foods, Frenchman/Decatur, Fountainblue Hotel purchase, Wrong Iron, Treps

The dad owned FQ property originally, not SidneyIV. He started buying too after he made the money in trash.

Also, not sure if the Motwani’s in FL are related or not....
Locals made tons on tee shirt shops and crappy stores along Canal. Rumor has it that they hand trucked crates of cash to safes on their office on Canal St.

Bump. Come on OT detectives, there’s gotta be more info on these people than this.
I’m not sure if they’re cousins with the Florida Motwani or not. Some I’ve met are super trashy and another was very well dressed and mannered. You could tell the latter was raised right. Did they make there money from T-shirts’ to start?
