The Firestone Fieldhouse at Pepperdine University is nothing to write home about. Much of the seating consists of wooden benches that look like church pews and the space feels cramped overall.

Malibu resident Mark Jason looked out onto 100 acres of raw land just southeast of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. It was his newest business venture with his longtime friend and Mexican national Manuel. The only question: what to do with it.
