Visions For Vacancies: Forestville Center

Forestville Center

Periodically, I’ll feature a commercial building that is for lease or for sale and ask you to tell me 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?

Today’s Visions For Vacancies is the center of Forestville and the highly visible “Blue Building”.

This high traffic building has limited parking but is located right in the center of Forestville with excellent highway access.

Forestville has recently become a hot spot with restaurants, stores, and businesses.

However, this building seems to remain a void.

When the state relocated Rt. 72, it left the center of Forestville in the hands of the city. There were talks of redesigning the road, but at the moment there are no approved plans in place.

So, what would you like to see there?

Tell me on the Bristol Roundup Facebook page.

Know of a vacant building I should highlight? Let me know!

Visions For Vacancies is only the featured name of this series of posts and does not necessarily mean the highlighted property is vacant.
