a lot of weight near a lot of water

The sudden and large-scale construction of many concrete-block houses along St. Lucie Boulevard between roadway and St. Lucie River might mean more of a probability that river waters will rush into other areas of northeast Stuart, FL, as those structures settle. Pier-type wooden pilings embedded in some westside pre-hurricanes yards along that road suggest that the river occasionally seeped inland among houses much less weighty. Directly across the road from the sidewalk-side pilings can be seen a now-unusual space between buildings, one a house yet being constructed, that affords a view of the river itself.
