In this installment of Visions for Vacancies, the Bloomfield Patch asks: what do you think should move into 50 Broad St., the former Annie Sez department store.
All possibilities are on the table. We ask you to forget what zone it's in, ignore setback regulations, dump-lot coverage rules, and all the other zoning jargon that puts most people to sleep. If you had your way, what would you like to see there? What would be the best use for the community?
The former department store is a two-story building and has a vast, open first floor. The historic looking facade is coupled with nine storefront windows which take up a significant amount of space along Broad Street where it intersects with Franklin Street.
Across from Bloomfield College and the township's centennial monument, the empty store is nestled within the town's busy Broad Street business district. However, it is neighbored on either side by small vacant buildings.
So what do you think, Bloomfield? Should another department store go there? Or should the space be split up for many smaller new businesses? Leave a comment and let us know below!
