    Jeffrey Epstein's Blue-Striped Building on Private Island Raised Alarm
    NBC News
    A small building on Little St. James, the Caribbean island estate of Jeffrey Epstein.

    The bizarre blue-striped building on Jeffrey Epstein's private Caribbean island was supposed to be a music pavilion with a strikingly different design, according to permit records viewed by NBC News.

    The building, shaped like a giant box and initially topped with a gold dome, has fueled rampant speculation and online conspiracy theories.

    Drawings supplied by Epstein's architects to the U.S. Virgin Islands agency that oversees coastal development show that it was designed to be a haven for music: an octagonal 3,500-square-foot pavilion housing a grand piano.

    But questions remain over whether it was built according to the plans that were submitted to the Department of Planning and Natural Resources.

    NBC released footage in its archives from 1992 of Donald Trump and Jeffrey Epstein at a party at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate. The video shows them laughing and pointing as they appear to talk about women at the event, NBC News reported. Trump has said he knew Epstein, but “was not a fan” and they have not spoken in 15 years.
