We've covered vacant commercial spaces on South Street ad nauseum, and today we have a spot of good news regarding a space we've never even brought to your attention. The northeast corner of 2nd and South Sts., just a block south of the Shambles, has been empty for years. Honestly, we don't even remember the last business that called this address home.

The space
Headhouse is up the street

You would think that this location would be desirable because of constant South Street foot traffic, as well as proximity to the Shambles, home of Headhouse Farmers' Market. Perhaps nothing has opened here for years because of the curious layout of this intersection that's friendlier to vehicles than to pedestrians. Or maybe the rent number was too high, we just don't know for sure. What we do know is that a potential tenant could be coming into this space, provided they get through zoning.
