Behind the former Church Street Blockbuster, which the elderly will recall was a chain of stores that were like physical Netflix spaces, lies an empty parking lot at 55 Belcher. Now there are plans in the works for a four-story, 25-unit condo building there, Socketsite reports. Realtor.com estimates the site's worth to be $1,728,077.
The building would be 40 feet tall and include a 12-car garage, though of course, the area is one of the most transit-accessible in the city. As for the Blockbuster space itself at 158 Church?
No plans yet. Correction: plans are in the works for a crossfit gym at the site, or at least they were as of last summer according to Hoodline. "We've been hung up in the permit process for improvements to the building," a Flagship CrossFit representative said at that time.
