Alessi's Block Re-Development - FOR SALE

I didn't see this posted previously, so please excuse me if this news is redundant. I just wanted to point out the the property that's been complained about in past postings -- owned by Alessi's and located on the east side of Nebraska Ave. between Louisiana Ave. and New Orleans Ave. -- is for sale for "block re-develiopment." It appears to include the front storage building, the shanty house behind it and the adjacent property to the south of it where unused Allessi lemonade stands are usually parked . That opens a huge chunk of land from just north of Osborne, south to New Orleans Ave. (with the exception of that drive-thru convenience store).

Just imagine all that could be done to improve that stretch of area.

Morning Glory Funeral Home is also for sale now. Plenty of opportunity.

Thank goodness, Alessi is a pig that has put our neighborhood stagnant for the past few years.

Alessi Bakery is waaaay overrated.

We bought an overpriced cake there for our wedding and it sucked.

Apologies for this off-topic comment, but I've been trying unsuccessfully to reach the editor of the Seminole Heights Blog by e-mail. I’d appreciate it if you could forward this message to the appropriate person.

J-Lab, The Institute for Interactive Journalism, is compiling a new online citizen journalism directory – part of the new citizen journalism resource site. We wanted to try once more to gather information on the Seminole Heights Blog for this directory.

Please take five minutes to fill out a brief online survey so we can include your site (for free). We need your response by Thursday, March 1 to guarantee your inclusion in the debut edition of our directory.

Here is our survey:

Due to respondents’ suggestions, we have restructured this survey so that all questions now appear on one web page. We also have reduced the number of required fields. So if you hesitated to respond before, please check out the revised survey.

Our survey requests descriptive information that will allow us to categorize your site, location information to place it on our Google Map navigation interface, and contact information for our internal use only (to keep the directory updated).

This online citizen journalism directory is sponsored by J-Lab: The Institute for Interactive Journalism at the University of Maryland, as part of a forthcoming Knight Citizen News Network initiative, and by the Center for Citizen Media, jointly affiliated with the University of California, Berkeley's Graduate School of Journalism, and the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University Law School.

Please help us track the rise of citizen journalism.

Questions: e-mail me at

Thank you,

Amy Gahran of I, Reporter, on behalf of J-Lab: The Institute for Interactive Journalism

Let's see something. With all the realtors in the hood this should be easy. This Ass clown has kept this property looking like crap and I guarantee you this property will be listed double what he paid capitalizing on the hard work of the neighbors. Hope he sits on it for months until he is forced to reduce the price.

People in Tampa have known that for years, Alessi is nice to look at, but no good. They were good years and years ago, but someone along the way just lost interest.

Thank you giving awareness to others. It will help others to know about the problem with that property. Thank you very much for you kind information.
