Visions for Vacancy: A Former Ice Cream Shop
What would you like to see in the space formerly occupied by Friendly's?
The bay at 5 Austin Street that once housed a Friendly's is just as cold as the ice cream once served there—but something could return soon.
A representative for New England Development told Charlestown Patch this week that the company is currently in lease negotiations with a potential new tenant.
Who that tenant is, the company wouldn't say.
Who would you like it to be? The 4,500 square foot space seems to still house ice cream shop amenities.
Readers responding to earlier Visions for Vacancy articles were excited by the idea of another ice cream shop. Would you like to see one here? Perhaps you'd prefer a restaurant? Perhaps a gym?
