Visions for Vacancies: What Should Go Here?
The building at 1413 Lauderdale has been vacant for several years.
As part of our Visions for Vacancies series, we ask Lakewood readers to share their ideas for some of the city’s empty spaces.
After last week’s story about the vacant Vedda Building, a Lakewood Patch reader suggested that we look into the space at 1413 Lauderdale Avenue.
The property is not listed for sale.
The building, directly to the south of the Plank Road Tavern, was most recently the home to North Coast Extreme.
Dru Siley, the city’s director of planning and development, said even though the North Coast Extreme building isn’t on Detroit Avenue, it’s still a “perfect” location — particularly for businesses that don’t require curb appeal.
