Maybe Novato Patch readers can help our local commercial real estate folks figure out how to fill some of our empty storefronts. Might as well give it a try, right?
Each week, we will feature a vacant store, abandoned building or undeveloped lot and ask readers: "What do you wish were here?"
The idea was inspired by Candy Chang from New Orleans, who in 2010 created "I wish this was ..." stickers and placed thousands around the city for residents to fill in the blanks. Stickers can be bought online here.
The old Del Reeno Meats building at 1413 Grant Ave. has been empty for years and rumors have swirled about potential clients hoping to nail down a purchase or lease. Vince Sheehan of said this spot is still available even though several parties have expressed interest.
What do you think would really enhance this location on the western end of Grant?
