What Should Go Here? Old Maud Baker Building

Do you have ideas about what kind of business or enterprise would work in the building where Maud Baker Florist used to operate?

Maud Baker Florist operated for years out of a building on Church Street, near the Commerce Drive intersection.

The business moved to 385 N Clarendon Ave. in Scottdale, leaving the Church Street busines empty.

What would you like to see operating out of the building now? Remember, it doesn't have to be a retail business -- doesn't have to be a business at all.

Seems like this building would make a good bakery/restaurant. Any other ideas?

Looks like it would make a nice house.
