The 84 Front Street building retail space sits un-leased. There are two prime spaces on Front Street between Washington Street and Adams Street. A reader wrote in:
…I was walking by 84 Front street and saw some construction going on in the store front space. After talking to the doorman in that building it sounds like Citibank ATMs are going into that space. He also speculated that a UPS store was going in the other half of the space…
I’d prefer not to have ATMs and a UPS store in those spaces. There’s already a Copyrite (mycopyrite.com) at 45 Washington Street where you can ship your packages, and a Chase branch (136 Front Street at Jay Street) joined Sovereign Bank (40 Washington Street) in the neighborhood. I’m hoping for more food choices (if those spaces accommodate it) or for the smaller location, how about a late night Vietnamese or Italian-style sandwich bar/counter? If you’ve been to Florence, Italy, you’ve seen I Fratellini, a tiny counter where you can get a great sandwich with prosecco or wine while standing in the street. How about something like that?
