Destruction is usually a bad thing, but for one community, it’s the doorway to a new future.

The front wall of Promenades at Parkside in Port Charlotte was hit with a wrecking ball on Friday.

But the fun didn’t stop there.

After the front wall was hit by a wrecking ball, local leaders held a block party showcasing their local shops.

Leaders hope the area will become a community hub with apartments, restaurants, and retailers.
