Visions for Vacancies: 6000 Laurel Bowie Rd.

What would you like to see in this former health club.

This week's edition of Visions for Vacancies: 6000 Laurel Bowie Rd. 

This vacant 15,000 square foot building once housed a 24-Hour Fitness Club and now sits vacant near the intersection of Route 450 and Route 197. 

The sizable space has a great location, close to two well traveled roads in Bowie. Parking would be shared with an adjacent office building. 

A 72-month lease is being offered for $10 per square foot per year, putting the monthly rent at $12,500. 

Permitted uses for this large space include gym, adult or child day care center, church, veterinary clinic, dry cleaners or laundromat, trade school, general office use and medical office use. Which of these options would you like to see move into 6000 Laurel Bowie Rd? Does Bowie need more gyms or day cares? Tell Patch in the comments!

I would love to see a laundromat. We are fairly new to Bowie and have not come across one in the area.

Trader joes or an indoor dog park

My Vote is for a Laundromat, with wifi. We have only one close by and frankly it's terrible. There are not enough working machines and the place is not well maintained.

Drop-in daycare / backup daycare site.

Oooh, drop in day care, I could use one of those! Good call, Cara!

I haven't been to a laundromat in years, but if there were one with Wi Fi I might do that.

I've never seen an indoor dog park, but I like the sound of that.
Jenni Pompi (Editor) January 10, 2013 at 08:27 PM
Great ideas.

Two votes for a laundromat.

I wish I had the money right now I would move my daycare (www.hugachild.net) there. Plus add a drop in room. Another idea would be to have a family fun center.
