Let's call this a modern spin on community planning -- Patch's version of a charette, a digital drawing board where all ideas are on the table.
In an occasional column, we'll present a new vacant space and ask you to tell us what you think would be the best use. Forget what zone it's in, ignore setback regulations, dump lot coverage rules, and all the other zoning jargon that puts most people to sleep. If you had your way, what would you like to see there? What would be the best use for the community?
This week, we are asking what should be placed at 445 Pleasant Valley Way, where Best Cellars at A&P once stood across the street from Burger King
The building is located near the heavily traveled intersection of Eagle Rock Avenue and Pleasant Valley Way, and has a healthy amount of parking available.
So what do you think should go there? Another liquor store? A restaurant? A retail store?
