Visions for Vacancies: Bally's Building

What should go here? You tell us.

Patch readers, you know the drill by now: In the comments below, tell us what you think should fill this vacant space.

The old Bally's Total Fitness, located at the corner of Excelsior Boulevard and Quentin Avenue, is a large building in a prominent location, so there are a lot of possibilities here. Let your imagination run wild.

How about an SLP library branch? A library was one possibility included in the original plans for Excelsior and Grand, but it never materialized. It would be within easy walking distance for lots of folks, including families, seniors, Susan Lindgren students and Park Nicollet employees. It could include public meeting space and space for for the arts--including music performance. Plus plenty of free parking 1 block away at the E&G ramp.

How about a CVS Pharmacy? We already have a glut of Walgreens, and this is a good "walkability" area to boot! Terry
