On Sale, Florida's Death Row For Women
dailybusinessreview.com ^ | 3/4/14 | Samantha Joseph

A west Broward County prison that once held female serial killer Aileen Wuornos is set to hit the market.

The former Broward Correctional Institution is likely to come up for sale at the end of March, with a 60-day marketing period, as the Florida Department of Environmental Protection moves to sell eight unused properties.

A site appraisal is in the works, and no minimum bid range had been set. But the Florida Department of Corrections was working on advertisements and bid documents leading to the listing of the 66-acre site, spokeswoman Mara Burger said.

Ok, does anyone else think this would make a great apartment location? Take 3-5 cells, put up a new wall across the openings, add a normal door, BAM. Efficiency apartments. Also, you could hire some security, turn the cafeteria into a nice, quiet, sit-down restaurant (called The Chow Line)... I could really get into this plan with a financial backer.

The early bird gets the worm. I’m calling Shark Tank to see if I can get Mark Cuban to bankroll me.

For what I have in mind the less publicity the better.

Apartment location? Not very likely, but it’s happened before when the pockets were deep enough and the determination strong enough. But only after industrial strength disinfectant was used on all, and I mean all interior surfaces that could not be taken out and replaced.
Remove any leftover asbestos. Repaint interior with a new color scheme. Lots of Solar Light installations in each corridor. The outside should be double sandblasted to create a facade, or new looking appearance. Lots of Wisteria Vines, Dwarf Ivy, Cosmos plants in bloom. Lots of fruit trees, redwoods, and working fountains, you need spraying fountains and birdbaths that attract songbirds. When all looks and smells and sounds halfway presentable, you must invite a Bishop, a Rabbi, a Shaman, and an Iman, to bless the place. to install the proper feng shui. Have a parade of Nude Streakers wearing giants papier mach’e heads run laps to symbolize chasing out all that this evil and unworthy. Don’t forget a Bowling Alley, Jacuzzi and Observation Tower for kids and adults into Astronomy.
Invite Bob Villa over for lunch and hire a cameraman. Upload to YouTube and wait for the controversy to explode.

And we learned on The Walking Dead to stay out of the prison towers when the Governor comes around!

Okay, this is not very far from where The Bride and I went to take a suture class with Dr. Bones & Nurse Amy last February. The Weston hills and Bonaventure clubs are close at hand.

Speaking with locals at that class, they waved me off of ever being in the Miami-Dade are at all. Many were already planning bugout retreats in places north.

That prison location, if it gets occupied by prepared people, would turn into Fort Apache.

Or the Alamo.

First thing to do would be an excorcism. I once walked through a vacated prison and the hairs on my neck stood up.

Yeah, I’m sure there’s about ten thousand forms of nasty stuck in any old prison.

How demented is it that Hollywood would try to glamorize this demented murderer?

Not enough area to grow a proper amount of food.

Maybe if you got the land next door. You would still have to fence it off but by building a few more guard towers you could keep the farmers safe.

Being Flordia, you should be able to plant something pretty much all year around. With water no problem I say Hydroponic green houses would work well.
