The Real Deal Miami

Pembroke Pines project languishes

The vision of an ideal mega suburb looked great on paper, and still looks sharp on its freshly paved streets and roundabouts. But the 115 acres they cover around the city hall are largely empty. Residential development has halted and there are no houses or condominiums to fill the project space. City Center is stalled, and an examination of its records shows that the city may have been ahead of itself from the very beginning.
