Foundations of a Planned Development Lie Fallow in Victoria Park
Location: A half-block of unfinished cinder-block foundations -- for 24 unbuilt homes -- stretches along NE 16th Avenue from Eighth to Ninth streets in Fort Lauderdale, a block south of
Timeline: Eight buildings, half of them large apartment complexes, along NE 16th Avenue were demolished in 2005 to make room for a new development. The land sat empty, marked by just a few piles of dirt, until two-foot-high foundations were installed in 2007.
State of disrepair: It's stayed that way ever since. At the south end of the plot, dirt and grass have filled the foundations to the top. A chainlink fence surrounds the property, and rebar poles with orange plastic caps protrude from the cement block foundations. There are no utility connections except for a lone water spigot near the south end. No "for sale" signs or other notices are posted.
