Vacant Building: The completed trolley depot in Coconut Grove on Douglas Road on Jan. 15, 2014, which sits vacant. The building of this trolley depot has led to quite a brouhaha, with the U.S. Department of Transportation concluding that the depot violated the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as the county, and the cities of Miami and Coral Gables, failed to conduct a study to determine whether the trolley garage would adversely affect a minority neighborhood, failed to make sure that the site selection of the depot would not subject a group of people to discrimination based on race, color or national origin and failed to do the necessary outreach.
