Periodically, I’ll feature a commercial building, business or lot for lease and for sale and ask you what you think would be the best use for it.
Forget what zone it’s in, ignore setback regulations, dump lot coverage rules and all the other zoning jargon that puts most people to sleep.
If you had your way, what would you like to see there? What would be the best use for the community?
This edition of Visions For Vacancies is 81 North Main Street.
Listing Tom Bergeron says “81 North Main Street is an attractive retail/office complex with a total of 42,000 square feet. This three building center is one and two stories and includes tenants such as Family Dollar, Subway as well as other retail and restaurant establishments.
The center is ideally located in the downtown Bristol Business District and is situated on the CTfastrak line. Nearly 13,000 cars pass by this location every day. In addition, the new Bristol Hospital medical building will be built directly across the street.”
Do you agree?
So, what would you like to see there?
