Rockledge Eyesore Destroyed

What was once a busy shopping center in Rockledge is now pretty much gone. The old Rockledge Mall… formerly the Carnival Mall and the Sears Shopping Center along US 1 in Rockledge, has been demolished to make way for new housing. When the work is all done, the old mall… which had become an eyesore after years of neglect, will be replaced by a 302-unit apartment complex. About the only thing still standing now is The Molly Mutt thrift store. It remains open on a separate parcel from the rest of the property. The new apartment complex will have 4 buildings with 48 units each, and 2 other buildings with 56 units. There will be a swimming pool, a dog park, and two retention ponds. Access will available from US-1 and from Florida Avenue.
