The old Tropic Isle Inn building at the corner of Gulf Drive and 22nd Street North in Bradenton Beach is torn down Sept. 26. Site preparation began Sept. 24 for the work, which was permitted by the city. City building official Steve Gilbert said the city has not received plans for redevelopment of the property. For now, the property manager said, sod will be placed on the site.
