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 430 North Main Street.
Walgreens plans to close about 600 drugstores as it completes a $4.38 billion deal to buy nearly 2,000 from rival Rite Aid.
Walgreens isn’t saying which stores will close. Walgreens has 58 stores in Connecticut and Rite-Aid has 77 stores in the state.
The property is owned by D’Amato Realty.
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!
