There's no community anymore
A lady stopped by who is willing to pay the new exorbitant rents and she told my friend what her plans were for her new space, my friend's old space. She said the Grove is going to be turned into the West Village with all new plans. Guess that's better than Mary Brickell Village, which has also been the rumor going around.
It's sad because this lady and her dreams will probably be in and out in a few months and her dreams of being part of the new West Village will not materialize. And then the new tenant will come in and so on and so on, sort of like it's been going these past 10 years or so. In the past, people stayed, they had good businesses that kept on going and they knew their neighbors. Now, not so much anymore. If it's not that green card/visa scam, where they are in and out for a green card, no regard for the community, it's the overpriced rent scam.
Speaking of green card scam, just read in the Miami Herald that the City of Miami is offering visas to developers who will come to the city and build, build, build. More over-priced condos for foreign investors. Guess that's the way it goes now. No sense of community or quality of life, it's all about the dollar and over-development.
