Here is a scoop on a project you missed on San Marco Blvd.  It appears there is demo already on the rear part of the property.  The architect's rendering is on the developer's sign facing San Marco, a few blocks south of Bistro Aix  and north of European Street and on the same side of the street.  Went by too fast to catch the project name.  You might want to check it out for your next update.
Hey!  Whatever happened to just plain ol' COMMON SENSE!!

I finally found out what's going in at Kings Ave & Hendricks.  It looks like it's going to be a Medical office. 

stjr, I saw the building you're talking about on San Marco Blvd.  The only sign I saw was for the roofing company they're using.  About 3 doors north of that there's some interior renovations going on as well.  The sign said it's going to be an animal hospital.  i don't know what the previous use was.

^It looks like they are completely walling off the building's front and shifting the opening to the rear of the property.

That building never really addressed the street.  They've added windows onto Kings Ave and more windows in the back.  The entrance definitely doesn't look like a Medical office, but that's what the sign said.  I wish Hurricane Wings would hurry up.  I'll give them twice a week business throughout football season.

It originally did.  It was a part of several retail buildings at the terminal point of an old streetcar line.  The rest of that district was demolished for the construction of I-95 and the surrounding ramps.

Yep and you can still see the facade under the concrete panels.  Too bad they couldn't restore just the facade or something.
