Visions for Vacancies: 650 West Ave.

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 a store front in the strip mall shopping center at 650 West Ave., at the intersection of West Ave. and Elm St. It is the former site of an optician's office—which still has the sign-work up above the storefront.

Located in the same shopping center is an H&R Block and Dunkin Donuts. Nearby is a car dealership and St. Mary's Church. It is close to another V4V highlight, 608 West Ave.

Special Note: Whatever you might think should go there, you should note the store owner appears not to want to lease the space to anyone dealing with food, a laundromat or a religious venue.

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