FORT MYERS, Fl. — It’s been a couple of months since the owners of Jones Walker Palm Gardens Apartments was issued code violations. To date, the Teaneck, N.J.-based real estate company Treetop Development resolved nine of the 45 violations.
In an email to HelloSWFL Treetop Development’s regional manager, Naftali Leven-Brown said the company is in the midst of conducting “major work and upgrades to the property.”
Naftali provided the following to-do list:
- Replace plumbing in any unit with signs of water damage
- New hardwood-style plank flooring, new appliances, and new cabinets
- New roof
- Replace older windows with new energy-efficient impact windows
- Install a new playground
- Improve security after dark with new outdoor lighting and a new upgraded security camera system.
- Enhance landscape
- Powerwash, prime and repaint exterior.
Even though there’s a lot on the to-do list and Naftali ensures all the repairs will get done, some residents are wary.
The Department of Housing and Urban Development is expected to return in mid-December to make sure all repairs are made.
