The house in Miami, where Al-Capone took his last breath after a heart attack in 1947, is being rescued from destruction after locals launched a fierce campaign to save real estate.

The property sold for $ 15.5 million on Sept. 24, just weeks after it was acquired by developer Todd Michael Glazer and his partner Nelson Gonzalez in August for $ 10.75 million.

At the time, Glazer told the Wall Street Journal about a plan to demolish a 7,500-square-foot residence on Palm Island in favor of a modern building.

Despite Capone’s bad reputation and criminal history, more than 25,000 signed online petitions have been launched to stop production.

The seven-bedroom colonial-style house consists of three houses: a gate, a main villa and a pool booth.

“If the breach continues, Miami Beach could lose not only our local history, but an important part of U.S. history,” the organizers said in a petition. “The loss of this important structure and its replacement with a new large house will have a long-term negative impact on society.”

The petition forced the developers to withdraw their application in mid-September to the local design review board, which will decide if the house can be demolished.

In an interview with the Miami Herald, they likened the recently sold property to winning the lottery.
