Some Good News for 13th Street

     I love announcing good news , especially  for the 13th Street corridor in Fort Lauderdale.

     For you long time readers, you know we have been working on revitalizing 13th Street  for years – decades!

     Things seem to be really happening, finally!  Things like my son’s crazy fun thrift store, Oddballs, which is doing real well at 530 NE 13th Street –

        

     Well here’s more good news  ….

              

     Audi has bought the abandoned and troubled –  4 acre parcel – at 13th Street and the RR tracks , and they plan on building their service and detail center, (and fleet lot) there….. That is the proposed site plan above…

     The company’s local lawyer, Robert Lochrie, says Audi is excited to locate their service center for their new dealership ( which will be at the old Fuddruckers site on Federal Highway) in the oncoming 13th Street corridor.

     He says the building on 13th will have “substantial glass and lush landscaping”,  and the rear of the property will also have a 30′ landscaping buffer for the residential street behind it.

     The 13th Street Alliance Board will review the proposal at their meeting in July!

     I’m betting that they’ll love it – as I do !
