How long will the Chantilly Kmart remain vacant? What do you think should go into that space?

I get sick and tired of every kid having a birthday party all the way out in Manassas. Turn it into a giant skating rink, house of bounce, arcade and fun zone supercenter. Someplace every kid in FFX would want to go to.

Are there enough hot women in FFX City to staff a strip club that big? I like the idea though!

I see plenty of hot women at the gym and Mason is just down the road. Should be easy to recruiter women who want to make $1000+ a night.

They have agreed to build one on Westfield Blvd. So, what the duck is going into that space? I still think a multipurpose fun place for kids is the way to go.

Doubtful, there are already three Chick-Fil-A's in the area, one at the Expo Center a mile away, a newer one in Fair Lakes, and one at Fair Oaks Mall.

Didn't this place close down around Oct 2015? I bet the lot sits vacant all of 2016. Just not a happening area to pay a premium lease for.

Depends on the store. The Lotte building across the street was empty forever but is now doing very well. Golds Gym is crowded, Lowes, etc.

I agree. That middle shopping area is always turning over stores. There is no eye catching advertisement along Rt50 to bring people in.

I'd still like to see a massive bar complex go in like Dave and Busters. A bowling alley would be nice.

I wonder what kind of loss the building's owner takes each month without a tenant. That is some serious square feet being unoccupied.

Probably not as bad as one might think. I don't believe KMart/Sears has filed for bankruptcy so any lease in effect wouldn't be wiped out. They probably reached a monetary settlement to break the lease.

This assumes that KMart/Sears doesn't own that entire strip. They do own LOTS of real estate.

There's a panhandler at every stop light near that place when I'm in the area. Maybe they should turn the old Kmart into a homeless shelter?

That would be nice. And Publix does claim to be moving into the area. But with Wegman's coming in a mile south on Walney, not sure that would be wise.

You can add Sears Hardware in Franklin Farm that will be sitting vacant for a long time as well. The days of big retail space outside of Target and Walmart are over.

I made a few phone calls, and there is a Lamp Shade Centre opening in the Winter of 2016.

Lamp Shade Centre is very popular in the Western States, with over 650 locations in California, Arizona, Oregon, Washington, Colorado, and Utah.

When we were living in Denver everyone went to Lamp Shade Centre.

Let's make an arena for the new NBA D-League affiliate of our hometown Washington Wizards, the Chantilly Undergrounders (named after our beautiful website). Maybe some of our posters could go see a game and change their minds on what they've said.
