In this modern version of community planning — Patch's version of a charette, a digital drawing board where all ideas are on the table — we’re asking you the reader to tell us what you’d like to see in Brookfield’s open commercial spaces.
In this series we'll present a vacant commercial property 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’re looking at 126 Federal Road, formerly home to a Burger King fast-food franchise. The property shares a driveway off Federal Road with Savings Bank of Danbury, less than a mile north of the White Turkey intersection.
The burger joint closed down last year, however there are rumors that another restaurant chain — this time a mid-range, sit-down establishment — is considering the location.
What business would you like to see there? What do you think would best succeed?
