Visions For Vacancies: What Should Move To 6 Lackawanna Place?

Another restaurant perhaps?

Let's call this a modern spin on community planning—Patch's version of a charette, a digital drawing board where all ideas are on the table.

In an occasional column, we'll present a new vacant space and ask you to tell us what you think would be the best use. Forget what zone it's in, ignore setback regulations, dump lot coverage rules, and all the other zoning jargon that puts people most to sleep. 

We launch this new occasional feature by focusing on the now vacant space at 6 Lackawanna Place?

Last time we ran this piece we asked the community about 313C Millburn Avenue. Residents suggested a new restaurant or bakery but many voted for a bookstore. One Patch user asked for a sporting good store. 

With tons of shopping, restaurants and other eclectic shops in downtown Millburn, now it's up to you to suggest what business should move in. If you had your way, what would you like to see there? What would be the best use for the community?

What we do not need: 1) pizzeria...I think we have reached critical mass. 2) nail salon (1 is more than enough per town) 3) tanning salon (magnet for morons)

How about an Italian restaurant with a bank and a nail salon...all in one.

If another nail salon, Italian or Japanese restaurant opens, I'll scream. I always love a bookstore, but not sure how well it would do knowing that most people purchase books online or at B&N. Not sure about this location, but I think Millburn could use a good Indian restaurant or pub/restaurant.

My husband suggested that it house a JCP&L complaint center. :)

How about a portal to another dimension? We need more of those, particularly ones with nail salons.

I'd like an authentic English pub, complete with steak & ale pie with chips.

A good old fashion 5&10 cent store.
