Park Vista Square Building No. 3

What would you like to see at the new Park Vista Square, Building No. 3, next to Marketplace?

A couple of weeks ago we asked for your suggestions on the corner building at the new Park Vista Square building, next to Marketplace.  This week, we’d like to get your suggestions on building No. 3 of the new Park Vista Square that’s at 1716 Park St. at Buena Vista.

This is a newly-constructed building that sits where a car rental company used to live. This space measures 5000 sq. ft. There's free parking in the lot right behind the building.

Bill Phua is the developer for this project and he’s very interested in knowing what you would like to see here. For this building he’ll consider many uses, for example: restaurant, retail, grocery, gym, office space, just to name a few.

Suggest any type of business you wish you had in Alameda regardless of how niche you might think it is.  One way to think about it is to suggest every type of business you frequent and have to leave Alameda for.

Alameda Patch has partnered with Spotmojo to collect your suggestions.  The suggestions submitted on Spotmojo will go directly to the developer and potential businesses, which they'll use to try to make it happen.  You can make your suggestions in the comments section below, but please note, your suggestions will only count if posted on Spotmojo.

Spotmojo is a website where you can suggest the businesses you want where you live, work, or play. The suggestions are provided to new businesses and commercial real estate brokers to help new businesses find their ideal location. This gives you a voice in the businesses that open in your neighborhood and it helps local businesses succeed.

A Disney Store

I would prefer GYMBOREE for a children's clothing store. The business model of the Gap stores, is to sell inexpensive clothing that disintegrates within six months.

I agree with this suggestion, and suggest the following all-encompassing compromise that could satisfy all parties, or in the alternative, could induce disgust in all parties. Why not a restaurant that makes fish-pizza pies and fishburgers?

Zacchary's. Or a Scolari's/brew pub combo. Or a shop with well-made, stylish (not tacky) clothing and/or shoes professional women can wear to work. Or for a chain, I like Crate and Barrel. Or a Tesla dealership!

Good idea (see above). A Tesla dealership would help put the City of Alameda on the map, and stem the tide of business that are nail salons, second hand stores, yogurt shops, hot dog emporiums, and so on.
