What would you like to see move into this historic building on Lancaster Avenue?
The Importer building is ready to import a new business. You might remember the building from a recent historical photo challenge. It was constructed in 1715, originally part of a 20,000 acre estate. Today, it sits on about three acres at 370 Lancaster Ave., next to the Tri-State Tubular Rivet building, and most recently housed a furniture distributor. The building is now on the market for sale or lease, being represented by commercial real estate broker Jason Dempsey, the man behind the East Whiteland summer concert series. He said he's proud to be handling the building, which is both historic and cool. "We wanted to help create a vision for the property and wanted the community to offer some ideas. It has a real cool factor to the space…

What would you like to see move into this location at East King and Church streets?
While everyone wonders about what will be moving into the nascent development on East King Street in 2013, an existing, empty building sits across the street, ready for a new tenant. Knots and Weaves formerly occupied the space at 304 E. King Street, but a bad fire in 2010 forced the company to relocate down the road. Click on the photos attached to this article to see the fire damage that has since been repaired. The building has had a "For Rent" sign out front for a while. What would you like to see take this large space in this space on East King Street? Tell us in the comments.

What would you like to see at the site of this former Zoup! in Lincoln Court Shopping Center?
It's official. Zoup!—the exclamatory soup-and-salad shop in Frazer—has relocated to Lancaster County. Aside from its wide array of soups, the restaurant was notable for its relaxed atmosphere, free wifi and prime view of people taking the parallel-parking test at the nearby driver licensing center. What would you like to see take Zoup's place in Frazer's Lincoln Court Shopping Center? The center already has a supermarket, a pet store, an Asian restaurant and plenty of other businesses. What would be a good addition?
