Visions For Vacancies: Retail Land on Bristol’s Miracle Mile — Rt. 6

Aerial view of available lot

Periodically, I’ll feature a commercial building that is for lease or for sale and asks you to tell me what you think would be the best use for it.

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 Visions For Vacancies is 1251-1265 Farmington Ave.

This is a great prime 8.96 acre retail spot.

The property is across the street from Walmart, Dunkin Donuts, and Taco Bell.

Neighbors include Hobby Lobby, Big Lots, L.A. Fitness, Chili’s, Crowley Nissan, ShopRite, Crazy Bruce’s Liquor store.

The property is zoned BG Business General.

The asking price is $4,000,000.

So, what would you like to see there?

Tell me on the Bristol Roundup Facebook page.

Know of a vacant building I should highlight? Let me know!

Visions For Vacancies is only the featured name of this series of posts and does not necessarily mean the highlighted property is vacant.
