What Should Go Into Empty Waltham Storefront?

560 Moody St. is currently empty and is ripe for a new use.

While there are many restaurants in Waltham, occassionally they close for any number of reasons, as was the case with Gemelli Ristorante.

For this week's Visions For Vacancies, we are at its former 560 Moody St. location, which remains empty.

It's upper Moody Street location is accessible by bus, walking, bicycling or vehicle. On-street parking is available at metered spaces as well as side-street parking. 

A prior real estate listing said the building is 2,200 square feet on a 2,300 square foot lot. It has two bathrooms and a full basement in addition to the restaurant space. Zoning regulaitons indicate it could be used as a retail store, tatto parlor or even a church, among other users, according to city regulations. 

What would you like to see move into the space? Leave your thoughts and comments below.

Why are you asking us....? Only Robert Logan can make those decisions.

Actually, that is not correct. Logan represents lower Moody Street. Also, City Councilors do not have final say on which tenant goes in that space.

Moody definitely needs a full service pharmacy and a regular coffee shop.

Hi Susan, A pharmacy sounds great because currently I can go to a Tedeschi's-type store for late night food needs, but I can't get health supplies there!

I agree about the eatery issue; bowling, shuffleboard, skeeball and a special real board games (not virtual) room with cafe for healthy and not-so-healthy foods and beverages would be great, but alcohol-free! Us grownups need a place, too! If such an addition is realized, certain times for families with kids; singles; senior citizens as well! Keep ideas coming!!
