South Beach West Avenue Neighbor changing now

Real Estate

 Over a year ago, we challenged our community to come together and figure out a way to eliminate the eyesore of the vacant lot on 5-6-7 Alton Road. Well, the abandoned building has been demolished and the ugly vacant lot is now on its way to being a world class 3-acre park. It will offer amazing spaces for residents to get together, and includes a tot lot, dog park, resiliency elements and an elevated pedestrian path over 5th street to improve walkability in that area. The substantial completion date is 2021.
