What Do You Want To See In Vacant Business Space?

Do you have a vision for a local vacancy?

Like every part of the city, Southwest Minneapolis has several commercial properties that are currently vacant. Which business sites would you most like to see re-occupied or redeveloped? What are the worst empty eyesores in your neighborhood?

"Visions for Vacancies (or Vacancy)" is a popular feature at other Patches such as Maple Grove Patch and Inver Grove Heights Patch. We've run a couple, too—highlighting to a mobile store and that .

What else in the area needs some love from business? What do you want to see go there? ()

Please leave your suggestion in the comments below—or upload a photo if you've got one.

We're open to just about anything across the street from our shop in the abandoned Super America at 40th & Lyndale. Deli, restaurant, coffee shop, brew pub, bike shop, art gallery, retail store, art studio, gardening shop, community garden... Mixed use with offices on an added second floor (for a neighborhood architecture firm?), like the old Jack's space. Let's partner and get something done! -Locus Architecture, info@locusarchitecture.com

Do you have information about what other vacant spaces are available? My husband is interested in opening a chiropractic practice in the area, so we're busy looking for good locations/vacant spaces to set up shop.

Good question—We'll do a survey next week, and post a map or a list! In the mean time, if anyone sees an open spot, post it below!
