Here’s a fun game.
I’ll post a photo and description of a commercial or retail property.
Then, we all try to think of interesting uses for it.

First up, in the hot new HaWa District (er, maybe I have that wrong?):
Development potential. Five-story brick industrial building built in 1916. Former Jordan Marsh Co horse stable. Great location in the SoWa (South of Washington) District, in the South End, with easy access to major highways and minutes to downtown Boston. Near art galleries, great restaurants, and new condo developments. Ten-car parking existing on the first floor with potential for more. Freight elevator.

So, what do you think? What should we do with this property? If you know the location, you know it’s near 485 Harrison, Rollins Square and Laconia Lofts, near Bernard Toale Gallery and the Boston Sports Club. Very exciting neighborhood, with lots of potential for future growth.
If you bought it, what would you do with it?
