A new vacant space to fill

Recommended Posts

The Albertsons at the corner of Blair Stone and Appalachee Parkway has recently closed (Sometime in the last couple of weeks, I drove by today and the sign was gone). What you like to see in that space?

If I had to choose another store for this location what would it be... let's see... big box, used as a grocery store now, hmm...

I'd say a bowling alley... This would make a great location for a bowling alley seeing how it's centrally located in a high-traffic area probably lacking in entertainment, and Capital Lanes about 4 miles away burned a few years ago... great bowling alley opportunity here with nice big parking lot... or possibly a Mega Entertainment center like say Bingo(for the adults) Gamerooms for the kids, bumper boats, go karts, skating rink, and bowling alley.

Just a thought.

The real issue is that inside of 6 months or so, there'll be 2 40,000 Square foot plus spaces that are vacant at that intersection, since the Publix will move down the hill to Governors Crossing. If you were a developer, would you want the standalone, or to have the lure of the plaza that Publix is currently in (OK, maybe I'm exaggerating slightly with the K-Mart, but still)

You're right. If I were a developer however, I'd want to go ahead and make mine a stand alone... makes it easier to be more creative, you don't have all the other stores around you with tenants moving in and out, you're free to build from the ground up, or atleast totally remodel... that kind of thing.

What's with all the vacancies along the Parkway? Within the past 6 months, both the Barnes & Noble, JoAnn Fabrics, and Office Depot on the Parkway have left. I'm curious to know what's happening with them.

I think the barnes and nobles would be a great fit for the new mixed use office building going up on Monroe @ College.

is that going up for sure? do u have any dates or details on that?

I usually rely on the Democrat until something is proposed... it's not worth chasing something without a solid proposal. I'll begin to track this project once it is enters presubmittal with the planning department.
