Visions for Vacancies: Former Giant
What would you like to see in this vacant commercial space?
A chain link fence surrounds the former Giant Food store in the shopping center across Joppa Road from Jerry's Chevrolet—it's been vacant since Giant pulled out of the location over four years ago.
The building, located at 1925 E. Joppa Road and managed by KLNB, is the anchor for the Joppa Heights shopping center, which is completely vacant save for two fast-food restaurants: Burger King and Checkers.
The 39,375 square foot building can be subdivided to accomodate more than one business, according to the realtor's website.
In last week's edition of Visions for Vacancies we generated some great ideas for the former Schaefer & Strominger dealership on Belair Road in Fullerton: you told us that location would be great for a Sonic Drive-In, a Panera, or a Trader Joe's.
This week let's do the same—get creative and share your great ideas for developing this underutilized shopping center.
What business would have to come to Joppa Heights shopping center to renew interest in the unused space? What would you like to see this lot developed into? Tell us in the comments.
