Ever since Kentucky Fried Chicken closed down in April, neighbors have been abuzz about what might move in to its 2940 Avenue U digs. Would it be a Starbucks? A bookstore? Perhaps, as the boys at Brennan & Carr fear, a McDonalds?
Nope, nope and nope. It’ll be a TD Bank.
The last remnants of KFC were removed yesterday as the entire structure was demolished to make way for the bank.
According to Department of Buildings filings, the newest outpost of TD Bank will have a one-story building taking up just under 3,000 square feet of the property. It’s really just a small chunk compared to the lot’s 10,260 total square feet, which will be occupied by a 13-car parking lot.
A representative for the property confirmed that “America’s Most Convenient Bank” would take the space, noting that the lease was signed about a year ago – long before the KFC shuttered. He said he was not sure when construction would be completed or the bank would be open for business.
Is TD Bank going to be a good neighbor? What businesses would you like to see in that area?
