Visions for Vacancies: 55 North Main St.

We examine buildings in the Norwalk community not living up to their full potential to see what the community would like to see spring up there.


Vacant buildings are a problem for a community. Patch wants to know what you think the solution can be.

In our occasional series Visions for Vacancies we’ll look at vacant businesses and buildings in Norwalk and surrounding areas to see what our readers want to see move into their community.

Today, we’re looking at 55 North Main Street, around the corner from Washington Street, in the heart of the Historic SoNo District. It is just down the block from last week's highlighted space, the former Democratic Campaign headquarters. It sits on the same beautiful stretch and is surrounded by thriving activity from the area's quaint shops and thriving nightlife scene.

Nearby businesses include the Burger Bar & Bistro, Black Bear Saloon and the Famous Pizza House. Palace Digital Studios is also nearby, as is the Norwalk Historic Commission.

What do you think could go in this space? Let us know in the comments section.

How about a nice, chain restaurant like Chili's, T.G.I.F.'s or Applebee's? We need more family-friendy, affordable restaurants in this area.
