FORMER A.G. HOLLEY SITE TAKING SHAPE IN LANTANA
Some exciting stuff here! Perhaps it says something about me when I think that the redevelopment of a 70 acre site that will effectively transform a city exiting, but I am OK with that. Yes for some strange reason this never gets old for me and then you get to read about it. I guess that is how this blog works. Well, onto the news. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this site, it was previously the home to the state’s tuberculosis hospital. It was closed in 2012 and has since been demolished, leaving a large, unsightly vacant plot. The new site will be called Water Tower Commons and will feature 1,000 residential units (a mix of apartments and townhomes) behind big box retail and outparcels. It will become the shopping hub of the area and will be a catalyst for more development around it, which is badly needed. Home values in this area must be shooting up right now, and many jobs will be created by the project. There is no question this is progress and something that is welcomed by all in this area. Usually there are some naysayers for every project but I haven’t read about a single one in this case. Congratulations to Lantana, your rebirth is beginning. Let’s hope that this is the beginning of a new great story about the city. As always thanks for reading and have a great day.
