    Crews moved in quickly to water down the debris and begin moving it away from the site, once cleared construction on a new 83-acre mixed-use development will begin.

    The new development will have high-rise condominiums, luxury town homes, senior living and medical office buildings.

    The development will be completed by December 2009.
