Visions for Vacancies in Lexington: 1688 Mass Ave
A weekly look at one vacant storefront, building or structure in the community.
Our new Visions for Vacancies feature starts this week on Lexington Patch. Here you’ll find a place where you can weigh in with your ideas about what kind of businesses you’d like to see occupying empty storefronts around town.
Each week, we’ll highlight a vacant building, storefront or structure around town. And we’ll leave it you, the Lexington community, to sound off on what you’d like to see there before any plans go before town boards.
This week we’re taking a look at 1688 Mass Ave., a vacant storefront in Lexington Center.
The sign on the window advertises retail space for lease. But what would you like to behind those brick and glass walls? The area has several places to grab a bite and assorted retail offerings, but maybe you have an idea of what would compliment existing businesses or fill a void of what’s lacking in Lexington Center.
So, if you had your way—and, for the purpose of this discussion, let’s try not to focus too much on zoning restrictions or amendments no tap for annual Town Meeting—what would be your vision for this vacancy? Let us know what you think in the comment section below.
