2312 N. Roosevelt Blvd. Key West, Florida - Waterfront Commercial

I wrote about 2312 North Roosevelt Boulevard in Key West soon after it was listed in April. It's time for a second look as this interesting commercial property with terrific US 1 frontage remains unsold. This nearly 20,000 sq ft lot (102' X 194')  lot is located opposite the Key West Yacht Club. There is a traffic study available to prospective buyers to study the tremendous traffic flow that passes this location each day as tourists and locals make their way into the Old Town just a few blocks to the west.
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 residential 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 couple of months the renovation of the four large hotels 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 School.  I point out the old so that prospective buyers can understand that what was in the past does not mean that an existing use must stay that way in the future. Some smart buyer will purchase 2312 N. Roosevelt and may totally change the present use to something quite different.. 
I walked the entire lot while taking photos for this blog. 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 modular homes. If you are a developer you'll appreciate the size of the lot.  The lot is located opposite the Yacht Club. The existing building could be razed and a new structure built. With hotel rooms in the Key West core hitting $400 per night, this space might work well for a new small boutique hotel of maybe 20 rooms with yacht club views but more moderate prices. Or maybe a new owner would build quality retail or office space down and create several long term residential units 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.
