Visions for Vacancy: Empty Navy Yard Space

What else does Charlestown need in the Navy Yard?

Dartmouth Properties currently has a 9,600 square foot property for rent at 55 Constitution Road.

Right now, its tall windows are blocked by brown paper, but the advertisement tacked to the middle frame suggests that it would be a great location for a retail store or a restaurant.

The space also includes a 3,500 square foot outdoor courtyard, and the online listing for the property notes that it’s “steps from the USS Constitution and on the Freedom Trail.”

What all that in mind, what would you like to see there? Should it be something targeted at locals, or should it be targeted at tourists? Does that area of town need another restaurant?

Panera Bread would be wonderful!

This space is too big for most restaurants.

Panera Bread? Negative on that. Trader Joes would be awesome, though.
