To document the depth of the housing crisis, New Times is profiling some of South Florida's forgotten homes.
Location: At the east end of Broward Boulevard, just west of when it becomes Victoria Park Road, in the tony Colee Hammock neighborhood.
Time abandoned: Unknown. Inchian Properties LLC, bought the land in 2005, at the
height of the housing bubble, for $570,000. Construction on the new structure appears to have
stopped years ago.

State of disrepair: Construction stopped after the cinder-block frame was built for the lower level. The only signs that a second story was coming is the rebar sticking up skyward from the wall frames -- and the half-built spiral staircase to nowhere. Waist-high weeds grow where floorboards should lie. In September, a city code inspector cited the owner for failing to put up safeguards around the pool.
Availability: Unknown. A sign on the structure advertises a number that has been disconnected, and Inchian isn't listed in the book.
