Visions for Vacancy: Large Windows on Main St

What would you like to see in this prime Main Street location?

At 279 Main Street, across from Mishawum Park and right in the part of Main Street where business density starts to pick up, stands an empty set of large windows.

The space previously held a landscape architect’s office, but the owner moved after 12 years to relocate to Cape Cod, according to rental contact Tina Endicott.

She described the storefront as a “big open area” of about 2,000 square feet, including a private office and high ceilings.

Our question for you: what would you like to see in this space? Another office? A lawyer or an accountant, maybe? Or something totally different? Perhaps a cheese shop? A hobby store?

Bette - "It's classified as office/retail space and the rent is $3000 per month. You can forget about your burritos and tacos!! Thank goodness." Apparently, 'Thank goodness' is pro food service? Can't have it both ways Ms. Task. If you were my realtor and I asked you what a particular location is zoned for and you didn't know or didn't know how to acquire this information, as based by your reply to Mary Kay ("How can we get all this info Mary Kay?"), you would not be my realtor any longer. Along with my own research, I use (and pay) a realtor to give me the knowledge I need to make an educated investment. Maybe you're right, I don't know why you (realtors) get paid the fees you (realtors) do? Thank you for this lesson though - For Sale By Owner!

Whatever opens up .. Hopefully a food/icecream place, I hope it will stay open late as there is nothing to eat in this neighborhood, except speedies, after 11pm

How about a satellite office from the Mayor's office to help place our young people in jobs or help them to get jobs to be productive citizens of Charlestown. I'm sure there are young people out there that would like a job but do not know where the resources are or who can help them or what they are best suited for. Just a thought.
