Visions For Vacancies: Northpoint Blockbuster

What should go on this corner in North Reston?

This week's Reston Patch Visions for Vacancies takes a look at the old Blockbuster Video storefront at Northpoint.

The space has been vacant since March od 2011, when the video store closed as part of a national downsizing of the video store chain.

What do you think should open in its place? Tell us in the comments below.

Oh, boy - was I ever glad to see Calif. Tortilla close. I know everyone has different tastes, but I didn't know a soul that liked their food, especially compared to Chipotle.

We don't need more places where Americans, Restonians, can get more fat and stupid. Skip all the food and booze places. I'd like a good gym. Not much space there, though. Maybe they could push out the eye glasses place - does anyone even go in there? Another on my wish list: evict the ham store. Other than a couple or three times a year, it seems positively vacant. I'd love to see an upper level (second story) to North Point, full of executive-style single-occupancy/shared offices, for folks that telework but find too many distractions at home.

In a dream world I'd use the space to open a studio for hoopdance, HoopnoticaFit, Zumba and yoga classes. :)

How about an automotive supply store? None in North Reston that I know about - closest ones are in Herndon or Sterling.

I like the yoga studio idea. But like another commenter, I think Starbucks should take the space. There are other Starbucks with big tables where volunteers can hold meetings and kids can study or meet tutors or people can work. It has great light. And they could expand on the breakfast and lunch food they currently offer.
