Walgreens bought two lots to build a futuristic store and on that first lot was an abandoned car wash that sat empty since 2006. The second lot had a two story low income apartment building that is directly across from Chetrit Group's new Miami Riverwalk.
Demolition was just completed on the car wash and Walgreens just recently knocked down the apartment building. Construction should begin on the new Walgreens in the next few months.
Below are photos of the apartment building that was on the site.
