A boarded-up nursing home and duplexes that until recently were home to sex offenders are about to become history as new owner Bert Belanger prepares the stretch along Automobile Alley for redevelopment.
Belanger, previously a partner in the Maywood Park development and owner of the Momentum Market, confirmed he formed Sebe Holdings and bought several properties along Broadway Drive between NW 11 and NW 13.
•Former sex offender halfway houses, 1100 block of Broadway Drive, $520,000.
•The former Park Manor Nursing Home, 1210 Broadway Drive, $1,234,000
•Viney's Garage, 16 NW 11, $100,000.
Belanger acknowledged the former sex offender duplexes have been extensively vandalized in recent weeks, and curtains now blow out from broken windows while debris is strewn across the front porches.
"I'm going to knock them all down,” Belanger said. "I've applied for permits and it's all slated for demolition within the next 60 days.
