More houses along Pine Lake Ave. in La Porte will be torn down soon. One was just recently demolished. City engineer Nick Minich says a developer bought the properties and plans to use the ground for commercial purposes. Minich says he doesn't know a lot of specifics but there could be something like a strip mall going in there. The house recently torn down is across from Culvers. Minich says the entire site eyed for redevelopment is about two and a half acres.
