The brainchild of entrepreneur H. Wayne Huizenga, Blockbuster cornered the video rental market. One of the fruits of his success was his opulent Florida-style mansion called Tarpon Point on its own peninsula jutting out into the New River in Fort Lauderdale which he purchased in 2005. Now for sale at $26.95 million, Huizenga’s home has become a landmark to Lauderdale’s prolific boating community and tour boats.
H. Wayne Huizenga had the rare status of being the only entrepreneur to launch three Fortune 500 companies: Waste Management, Blockbuster Entertainment and AutoNation. He was also owner or part owner of the Florida Marlins, Florida Panthers and the Miami Dolphins. At its peak in the early 2000s, there were over 4,500 Blockbuster stores in the U.S., now just one is left which is in Bend, Oregon. Huizenga passed away at the age of 80 in March.
