Visions for Vacancies: 895 Washington Blvd.

We examine buildings in the Stamford 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 Stamford and surrounding areas to see what our readers want to see move into their community.

Today, we’re looking at 895 Washington Boulevard, at the intersection of Bell St. The building sits on a busy thoroughfare just across the street from the Stamford Government Center in Downtown Stamford.

Nearby businesses include a lot of Downtown District mainstays like Tiernan's and Curley's Diner, just around the corner.

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

I'd like to see vacant store fronts become public art projects. If the city of Stamford gives incentives to building owners for such a purpose, it will both support local artists and make the store fronts more appealing, thereby making Stamford a nicer place to live while attracting potential renters.
