Letter: A wonderful possibility

To the Editor:

When I look at the empty Charlestowne Mall, I see a wonderful possibility for residential (condo-loft-townhouse-rental) conversions.

The inner mall would be a wonderful indoor shared space, especially during wintertime.

I see a club house, coffee shop, dry cleaners, movie theater, 7-Eleven, small restaurant areas, barber/beauty shop, banking and health club facilities.

The large parking lots would not be needed, so there would be room for commercial office space and other businesses.

Not sure if St. Charles needs more residential space, but this would be unique in amenities and the diversity of housing types.

Might work to have family, senior and young adult sections, catering to their needs.
