Occupy This Space: On the Corner, on the Green

Long-empty, this piece of prime real estate could use some occupation.

It's quiet. Too quiet. Oh, we're sorry, we're just talking about the section of South Park Place once occupied by .

While and T are holding their own, left this section of the Green eerily quiet. But, Greenberry's was not the first gap in this business cluster.

On the corner of South Park and South Street is a piece of primo real estate. Yet, for at least two years (), it has been empty. And, quiet. Too quiet.

So, in this week's "Occupy This Space," we're asking what you think could work here. Think about its footprint, its size and shape. Could a convenience store thrive? A restaurant? A clothing store? Give us your suggestions in the comments below.

Can I keep suggesting a vegetarian restaurant until one opens?

If I had the money I would love to open a place that could be used by the community. A non profit that had a coffee bar, some sort of book shop, maybe used books, somewhere that groups could use to promote connection between neighbors. It has been my dream for a while and that property on the corner has caught my eye for a long time.

Sounds like you have a business venture in the works.
Kyle May 24, 2012 at 10:13 PM
Definitely not a convenience store. Last thing we need on the Green is a Quik Chek.

How about an Ethiopian restaurant? I'd love there to be one in town!
Christine Venart May 25, 2012 at 12:10 AM
I love this idea! I'm all for places that promote connection between neighbors!
John Dunphy May 25, 2012 at 12:17 AM
It would be neat, for sure, but can this place really support any more restaurants? An interesting test. I do love Ethiopian in New Brunswick.

Kids-oriented business, like combo of kIds shoes, clothing and hair cuts

No more restaurants!!! How much is the rent? Perhaps a cool gallery or artisan shop.

Hey remember DietWorks? That place had really good food, which always surprised me because of the name. I'm not sure if they were vegetarian or not. Of course to put in a restaurant you have to have a kitchen, does this space have one , or the permits for one?
Kendra Arnold May 25, 2012 at 01:43 PM
I think diet works closed right before I moved here; I've heard it was really good tho!

I want Cha Cha Cha back!

The problem is there is limited parking. The new deck is on the other side of the street. Also, while the building has a certain charm, it is old and is in need of repair. If you look at the outside walls, it looks like they need some attention.

Not sure if there would be space at this particular location but how about a wine bar/tapas place somewhere in Morristown? A brew-pub that brews their own beers would be pretty cool to have too, thinking something similar to Triumph brewery in Princeton, New Hope & Philadelphia.
Kera Goldsmith May 25, 2012 at 05:41 PM
I second this idea!
Kera Goldsmith May 25, 2012 at 05:43 PM
I still want to see a Savory Spice shop or something similar in town. This could work here.
David Steketee May 31, 2012 at 02:36 PM
The entire building is for sale. If I recall correctly they're asking around $6 million.
