Saving Mercy recently began demolishing part of the former Motor Inns and RV Park at I-75 and West Silver Springs Boulevard. The demolition was the next step in creating the Mercy Inn and RV Park. Plans are still under review by city officials, but, Saving Mercy hopes to build 35 “tiny house” duplexes as well as about a dozen family units and 5 small apartment buildings.
