Vacant buildings and unused storefronts are eyesores, but an empty storefront can also be an opportunity. You don't need to be a commercial developer or city planner—or have money to invest in a business project—to have the next great idea.
This vacant storefront at 8754 University Boulevard has a past that might be unsavory for some. Formerly known as the Sports Health Spa, it was raided by law enforcement in 2008 after it was found to be a brothel fronting as a massage parlor.
These days, it sits empty on a piece of prime University Boulevard real estate. It was assessed this year at a market value of $220,300.
What business would benefit the Moon area community? How could this space better serve you and your neighbors? If you had it your way, what would you place in this building?
