Those empty units at the Blue Fin building are a disgrace and I can see the one opposite the new Tesco on Great Suffolk St going the same way. I think its time a new approach was taken to these types of units where only a shell is on offer, which chains alone have the capital to bring up to finished retail standard.
I assume the rent for those units is outrageous. Maybe it should be lowered and local people encouraged to develop their own business, or galleries. Never enough small galleries as far as I am concerned.
