It is raining non-stop in South Florida for a few days. And it looks that rain and thunder is going to stay here.
Hurricane season is starting soon, but the rainy weather is already here.
When I was out in Davie earlier today, I had to go to one of the shops at the Tower Shops at the southeast corner of I-595 and University Drive. I was very surprised to see that whole parking lot flooded.
The work should be done in Summer 2019. Florida Department of Transportation has a big plan for this road. It includes:
“removing old asphalt, resurfacing the roadway, adding decorative lighting, widening sidewalks and adding decorative pattern, upgrading existing pedestrian signals to countdown timers, constructing new median with parallel parking, replacing the existing water main and connections at various cross streets, and upgrading signs and pavement markings to reflect the new roadway configuration as follows: two lanes in each direction throughout the entire corridor, a four-foot bike lane in each direction separated by a two-foot buffer throughout the entire corridor.”
When driving in the area, please be carefull and watch for construction people and vehicles.
The work at the Broward College Downtown Fort Lauderdale Campus has started.
The studens and administrative employees have moved to the building on Las Olas Boulevard, that Broward College shared with Florida Atlantic University.
Once completed, the new facility will create spaces that would benefit students attending the downtown center. The outdoor courtyard will provide a flexible, multi-use plaza for events, student activities, classroom instruction, and public gathering places. The new project will have lots of upgrades that include a pavilion for outdoor events and classes, and affordable restaurants and shops near campus.
In addition to spaces for College use, the facility will incorporate approximately 380,000 square feet of office space, 17,500 square feet of ground floor retail and dining, and an associated parking structure.
Stiles Corporation acquired parcel adjacent to the Broward College Campus and to the north, so the final project will include one city block on Las Olas Blvd. between SE 2nd Ave. and SE 3rd Ave.
The mixed use development will improve the pedestrian experience, and will be served by the Wave street car.
The best playground in South Florida, hands down, is at Sugar Sand Park in Boca Raton, FL.
If you have more time and would like to let your kids to explore and experience an amazing playground, please, take your time and go to this Sugar Sand Park Science Playground. You will not be dissapointed, and the kids will be extatic.
It has never ending three story maze with secret passages, stairs and slides… Kids can play for hours there, and be very excited all the time, because of all the various activities they can do: pull, push, hide, slide, jump, climb, run – you name it.
Pack some snacks and water bottles and be ready to have a great time.
There are a lot of changes coming to Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, FL.
The main feature of the new project is going to be a 35-story hotel shaped like a guitar. There are going to be many more other interesting features too: a larger performance venue, and a manmade lake with Pacific islands-inspired housing inside the middle of the water called “Bora Bora Experience”.
The work had started already. The original restaurants and retail shops complex that was at the casino has been torn down already.
