What Business Should Go Here?

Give us your 'visions for vacancies' on this property, which once featured G&G Power Sports.

The building is fairly new, and has great visibility along Racine Avenue just north of Janesville, but the retail space has been vacant for about a year and a half.

G&G Powersports had occupied the space until late spring of 2011, and it's now a listing from MLG Commercial Real Estate. With nearly 6,000 vehicles per day passing by, any tenant or owner could enjoy decent traffic, and parking is pretty accessible. Sale price is listed as $675,000 or $9.50 per square foot for lease.

Jon Packee, a real estate advisor with MLG, said the property is being marketed as retail, but could also accommodate a light industrial use.

"There's a decent amount of warehouse space, which could serve a business that needed a basic waiting area and counter for customers, and we are also open to dividing the space into smaller pieces," he said. The current space is nearly 10,000 square feet.

As the city has utilized an incentive program to draw new business in, essentially offering a finder's fee to anyone who refers a business that ends up developing in Muskego, it's worth talking up whether you're a business owner, or know someone looking to expand.

Tough spot. Nice building, but difficult parking lot to get in and out of. And trying to go North on Racine Ave out of it is a bear around any high traffic time. Somar Tek's gigantic bush on the corner doesn't help with visibilty as well. I think it would work better for light industrial then a retail spot.

I would like to see a cabellas, gandermountain, bass proshop something of this nature, with all the lakes in the area and the distance of travel to get to a store of this nature.

muskegotom -I believe that is due to the fact that sportsman's doesn't have any stores in the Midwest. Shipping was probably rather costly due to the fact that the nearest store is Iowa and the majority of their business is on the east coast. I feel one of the other stores would do fairly well. If not a chain one of these perhaps a smaller version of the sort. Muskego did after all, keep a bait store in business for many years until the road came through forcing a move.

I don't know if this is the ideal spot but a high end hair salon/day spa would be nice. There is nothing nearer than Mukwonago/Waukesha/Brookfield. Good for Men and Women.
