An apartment complex owned by Newport Property Ventures is in really bad shape. Newport Property Ventures was founded by Alex Rodriguez. Thus, people will now call A-Rod a slumlord. From WTSP:
Newport Riverside, located near the Hillsborough River off of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., has numerous possible code violations, from fire hazards to rotting staircases. Residents say courtyard lights have gone months without fixing, while holes in walls and windows often do the same.
Other problems include mold, poor drainage, and shaky balconies.
This has been going on long enough that the New York Times talked about the property in 2007. There is no word on the condition of the 14 complexes run by Newport Property Ventures that are not located near Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. [WTSP]
