Corralitas Drive: Stalled Development Update, Corralitas Pits Of Doom

Photo: Diane Edwardson, October 10, 2011.  Since breaking ground in 2006, the Corralitas Pits of Doom are living up to their name.  (Click on photo to enlarge.)

More than five years in stop & start construction, 2463 & 2467 Corralitas Drive have given so much to the neighborhood: crimeillegal billboard, dumping, graffiti, unscreened utility hook-upscollapsing public staircase, ugly rooftops and of course, the ever popular Pits of Doom.  The Pits of Doom were finally filled in October 2010.  On and off the market since early 2008, it's no wonder neighbors still call the two houses, the Corralitas Pits of Doom.

And speculators developers wonder why neighbors get so hostile when they swear they'll complete a project?
