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 this series we'll present a new vacant building 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?
We launch this new weekly series by featuring the now vacant building at 849 Federal Road, the former home of Italiano’s.
Just north of Four Corners, the house that used to house an Italian eatery has been empty for a few months but is in a prime location for the redevelopment of the Town Center District. What business would you like to see there? What do you think would best succeed?
