Visions For Vacancies: Former Medical Office On Dresden Drive

What do you think should go here?

Not far down from the is this location, the site of what appears to be a former medical office.

It's a freestanding building with a lot of parking, and signage that gives it good visibility along one of Brookhaven's major thoroughfares.

So what do you think should go here? A karate school or yoga facility? Another doctor's office? Or something else?

Library... put a public park next door in that grassy treed land. Done!

Good idea. Also it's a good space for a gym or fitness studio. If anyone would like to investigate this possibility (including funding) I would like to discuss my concept.

I think we have enough Brookhaven gyms and fitness studios already. This building needs to be torn down and the land redeveloped.

A gun shop. You will need it if you stay with DKPD.

Sad story, yet interesting relative to your comment: http://dekalbofficersspeak.blogspot.com/

Mr. Steve, here is the property info, see if you can make it work. Unfortunately, the existing floor plan, previously included, has been removed. Regardless, it would have to be reconfigured for practical usage. http://tinyurl.com/c6l5puu Or, if cityhood passes, a power hungry new city can utilize their right of eminent domain and just land grab this piece of property for their own purposes! Man! Those are some exceptionally fine special hamburgers!

Not sure of the dimensions of the building or if feasible..but a gymnastics school would be a good choice...a lot of girls have to travel across the city..30 mins or longer making it difficult for parents to drop off around 4:30 and then do pickups at 8pm

Yes, a kid-friendly gym is sorely lacking in the area. I go to LA Fitness and they will not allow kids under 14 to do anything. The plot is big enough to have some outdoor exercise space incorporated as well. Regardless of election results, the place has sat unused for at least 8-9 years. Time for it to become a productive asset rather than the vacant eyesore it has become.

Daycare! We don't have enough options nearby without fighting Buckhead traffic.

Daycare is also an excellent idea...my grandkids are no longer in daycare...but when they were it was a hassel getting them there..great idea
