"Turk Evi" Has Been Purchased



Closing on the purchase of "Turk Evi" took place on December 1st, 2008. This was a historic moment for FTAA and South Florida Turkish community. After 41 years of waiting, South Florida Turkish American community now has a place to call "Home".

We still have a lot of work in front of us. The place we purchased is a brand new space and we need to build the interior out from scratch. We now need to start working on the interior architectural and engineering plans and make an application to the city for the permits. As anybody applied to cities for permits before would know, it is a tedious and long process. This will take many months, if not a year or longer. We assure you that we will continue working very hard on our "Home" and open it for your use as soon as possible. Please contact us if you can help us by providing professional services and materials for the interior construction of "Turk Evi".
