Double Vacancy: What Should Replace Belmont Avenue Ex-Gas Stations?
Both properties are at the Rock Hill Road intersection.
Patch wants to hear from residents of Narberth, Bala Cynwyd and beyond: What should fill the retail vacancies of your neighborhood streets?
Today, we're spotlighting two vacant gas stations, across the street from each other at Belmont Avenue and Rock Hill Road.
Riggins closed in November on the east side of Belmont. The station on the southwest corner of the Rock Hill Road intersection has been closed for years; Lower Merion Township bought the property in 2007.
A developer's proposal to build a CVS pharmacy at the southwest corner has met resistance from township officials.
That property's tax assessment is $380,040. The Riggins property, currently fenced up, is assessed at $153,260.
So tell us in the comments section below: What kind of business would you be most likely to frequent if it moved in to either space? And what other vacancies in town do you have ideas about filling?
