An abandoned auto repair shop on Route 111 has become the one in desperate need of repairs to become part of the community again.
This commercial property on the southern border of Hauppauge, on the intersection of Route 111 and Motor Parkway, sees a steady flow of traffic with hundreds of cars passing it each day. Yet, the lands has been vacant for more than a year.
A five-foot tall fence topped with barbed wire attempts to protect the land from trespassers, but it has been bent, twisted, and sections have fallen down. Bottles and trash litter the property as grass is breaking through pavement in the parking lot.
The 1.3-acre lot is on the market for lease by Devaney Realty, who is asking $12,000. It is approved for use as car wash, convenience store, gas station or office building, according to Devaney's website. Realtors call it "a prime national tennant location."
Do you remember the auto repair shop that used to be on the intersection of Motor Parkway and Route 111? What business would you like to see take over the corner?
