Welcome to Visions for Vacancies, a Patch feature and 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.
Most weeks, we'll highlight a vacant building, storefront or structure around town. And we 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 another look at 1646 Massachusetts Ave., a residential-style building in Lexington Center that's advertising retail and office space for lease.
The vacanct storefront is located on the eastern edge of the restaurants, retail and office space along Mass Ave in Lexington Center, and just a short walk from the high school, library and town offices.
What would you like occupy this space? Businesses added or on the way to Lexington since we last asked about this vacancy include a consignment store, to yogurt shops and a real estate office.
Anything missing from the center that you'd like to see there? Or perhaps you have some idea of what would compliment those thar are already here.
So, if you had your way—and, for the purpose of this discussion, let’s try not to focus too much on zoning restrictions—what would be your vision for this vacancy? Let us know what you think in the comment section below.
