2312 North Roosevelt Blvd. Key West - Deveopment Opportunity!

Just Listed by Preferred Properties - 2312 North Roosevelt Boulevard in Key West, Florida. This nearly 20,000 sq ft lot irregularly shaped rectangle (102' X 194') frontage on US 1 as it makes its way into the Old Town corridor. It is located opposite the Key West Yacht Club.
I dug into my old shoebox and found an aerial photo from the not too distant pass taken by Ty Symroski and Wendy Tucker.  I have added arrows to point out the location of 2312 N. Roosevelt which is shown just opposite the Yacht Club. The small Hilton Haven enclave is located on the backside of the Yacht Club.

The two year long widening and enhancement of  US 1 from its entrance onto the Island of Key West to White Street was completed in 2014. Within the next few months the four hotel renovations at the US1 gateway onto to the island of Key West will be compete. They will join in the renaissance that is transforming North Roosevelt Boulevard as it winds its way alongside the Gulf of Mexico toward Old Town. The black and white photo above was taken back in 1965. It shows nearby 1704 N. Roosevelt Blvd. back in 1964. The old Dairy Freeze is history now. Today there is a modern office building in that location. The vast open area behind it is now the athletic field at the Horace O'Bryant Middle School. Some smart buyer will purchase 2312 N. Roosevelt and give that parcel new life and new purpose. 
I walked this lot while I was taking photos. The width and depth of the space is much larger in person than it appears in these photos.  The 102' ft depth is equal to two large modular homes. The frontage is equal to nearly four modulars. I use the modular concept because most of us are familiar with that size. This is a really big parcel. Consider the possibilities if a new commercial space were built at ground level and completed with multiple residential components on the second floor.

Gary Thomas in a Nutshell

Key West, Florida, United States
I first read about Key West in a magazine called "After Dark" sometime in the mid 1970's. But it wasn't until March 1984 that I made my first visit to the island that would become my home. I had two weeks for a vacation and reserved a room at Colours Guesthouse (now Marrero's Guest House) for one week. I thought that if I didn't like Key West, I could always go back to Miami or Ft. Lauderdale for the rest of my trip. But after a couple of days in Key West, that was no longer a consideration. But when I wanted to extend my stay for the extra week I found there was no room at the inn. The guesthouse owner did find me a room at LaTeDa, the infamous guesthouse/restaurant. That's a story I'll write another day. But those two weeks in Key West gave me the realization that I had found Paradise. Key West has been my home since 1993 and my only regret is that it took me so long to get here. I am a full time Realtor at Preferred Properties CRI. Let me help you find your new home or business in Paradise. Living in Paradise is not a slogan, it's a way of life.
