Villa Magna Project Lives On…
…at least for the time being. The “Miami Today News” reported last week that the Villa Magna project is still pushing forward. I guess we can all scrap the inkling of a dream that the land would become a public park. I don’t think any of us actually thought it would be turned into a park but rather just wishful thinking that the city wanted a nice green space for the residents of Brickell. The Villa Magna project will reside on the last bayfront lot in Brickell. Now, we can all move on to hoping that the Brickell CitiCentre land will become a public park.
The same issue of the “Miami Today News ” also discussed the relocation of the Camillus House. For those not local to Miami, the Camillus House is a homeless shelter located in the neighborhood of Park West, a few blocks west of new luxury condo high-rise buildings such as Ten Museum Park, 900 Biscayne Bay, Marquis and Marina Blue. The good news is that the relocation of the homeless shelter is still going to happen. The bad news is that the move won’t happen until 2010. I think residents of these condo buildings are highly anticipating that day to arrive. The neighborhood will see a dramatic improvement and, as the article mentions, commercial developers will be more prone to open retail space in the neighborhood. 2010 will be a great year! The Super Bowl will be returning to Miami and Camillus House will be heading west!
Update: I do plan to update this blog on a more frequent basis like you had enjoyed in the past. I took some time off but now I’m back in full blogging mode. The new “Condo Deals” page is coming along nicely and should be rolled out by the end of next week. I’m looking forward to that as well as a few other changes that I think you’ll all enjoy.
