Grove resident Dave Villano hit the nail on the head when asked about the huge white boxes popping up in the Grove. In a Miami Herald article he said,
“Developers building the boxes are hollowing out the Grove lot by lot. One is

anymore. They’re parasites. They’re sucking the life out of what makes
the Grove special. And they’re profiting from what they’re destroying.”
