Visions for Vacancies: What do You Want to See Along Route 9?
For the vacant storefronts on Boylston Street between Cypress and Washington, what kinds of businesses would you be interested in seeing there?
Today, you get to play town planner--at least in the comments section here--by telling us what dream businesses you would like to see moving into Brookline.
Commuters and residents who drive along Route 9 in Brookline Village, between Cypress and Washington Streets, will see a number of local businesses--such as East Coast Divers, the Von Huene Workshop--and larger names like Ace Tickets and Dunkin Donuts.
They may also pass the former Red Cab site--for which Brookline Town Meeting approved a "sky plane" planning concept--which is empty and could be due for renovation. Another storefront further down the street, near the old Lincoln School, stands empty.
Red Cab site's development? What kind of businesses do you want to see along this part of Route 9?
A few months ago, we asked what businesses Brookline is missing, following the news of Otto Pizza and Hops and Scotch coming into Coolidge Corner. Suggestions included more vegan dining options and independent cafes. One reader suggested a branch of Jamaica Plain's City Feed and Supply.
