What Should Go Here at SE 27th and 78th Ave?

Do you have a vision for this vacancy?

What do you think should — or what would you like to see — fill this empty storefront at one of Mercer Island's busiest intersections in the Town Center business district?

The 77Central building, located at 2650 77th Ave. SE, is owned by SECO Development, Inc., was completed in 2009 and since then businesses have come and go. But as of August 2012, property management company Wallace Properties says this corner space of SE 27th Street and 78th Avenue SE is one of two vacancies left. The corner space is 2,375 square feet and "can accomodate restaurant use."

As far as we know, the corner — across the street from and — has never been occupied.

If you could bring new business into this space, what type of establishment would you like to see?

. Once again- it's really hard to disagree/differ with Ira on this. (I wish I could). J- "As I've said many times, OUR City Council is owned by wealthy development interests and couldn't care less about the wishes of average Islanders."

I would think a speciality children's toy/clothing shop could do well on the island with all the families that live here.

What about offering our community a service by reducing rent in order to maintain the hardware store on the island? Or reduced rent for the use of a Organic/natural Food Co-op run by locals? Both of these businesses are needed on the island and worth supporting. Some rent is better than no rent for a space that has remained unused for so long.
