Vacant: 420 S. York Road, Hatboro
Description: A space is available within the Victorian Village 55 and over condominium community.
Size: 2,000 square feet
Zoning: Office, RC-1 (office buildings, dental/medical clinics, retail, restaurants all permitted)
History: The Victorian Village at Loller Academy was constructed in 2008 and 2010. Billed as a small community within the residential living community, Village Italian Bistro, Susquehanna Bank and Mai's Nails and Day Spa are located onsite. This specific space was built in 2009, but never occupied, according to Hatboro Zoning Officer Keith Fugate.
The Challenge: Hatboro Main Street Manager Stephen Barth said the assessments on the units while empty are relatively low. However, once the units - and retail space - is filled taxes are "really high." That, coupled with a $2,500 per month rent, has kept prospects from committing.
Interest: Barth said insurance offices, gift stores and mini pharmacies have expressed interest in the available space.
Potential: Any goods or service provider that would complement the existing businesses at Victorian Village, while filling a need for the community's residents would be a good fit.
