City Park Aventura was a mixed use commercial and residential project scheduled to be built on the corner of 207th Street and 29th Avenue. For years there was a sales trailer on the property and it appeared that it would eventually get started. It’s not getting started anytime soon, and the construction trailer appears to be ripped from the ground as if a tornado stopped by the area. The purpose of this article is to spark ideas for the use of this property and beautification of this block in Aventura.
There are so many different stories about real estate projects that were scheduled to begin and then halted. Let’s keep in mind that developers operate a business and that sometimes when the market changes the business must change as well. They’re in business to make money; however, there should be a middle ground that prevents land from becoming an eyesore in town – especially in Aventura. This huge parcel of land is located adjacent to a synagague, school, residential, and commercial properties on a very active section in Aventura. Currently, the abandoned property is overgrown with greenery that’s pulling down the fence screening and the area where the sales trailer was located is covered in debris.
Imagine if this were a park or a sports field for the school. It’s a perfect location for residents and students to gather and enjoy. There’s plenty of space for parking and it could even be the location of an Aventura farmers market. There might even be grant money available from the United States Department of Agriculture. There are likely many opportunities for this type of real estate, let’s get creative. Obviously, there are real details about the ownership, liens (if applicable), taxes, and other items to take into consideration. Nevertheless, there should be a reasonable answer to cure the problem.
Here’s a Youtube video giving a great overview of what was supposed to be built here.
Readers, please share suggestions about what this land can be used for in Aventura and any creative/realistic ideas to make this happen – comment below, thanks.
