It wasn't too long ago that this writer would frequent the Curry Commons shopping center in Baldwin Borough for a hoagie from Mariana's Pizza or a carton of iced tea from the corner mini-mart.
Man, what was the name of that place? Haf-Mart?
In any event, those stores are long gone, and with them has come vacancies along Curry Road.
But Burns & Scalo Real Estate Services has those properties available for lease, and the annual rent, according to the Burns & Scalo website, is negotiable.
Currently occupying space at Curry Commons are places like Salvatore's (banquet hall), South Hills Embroidery (apparel and design shop) and McCoy's Pub (bar/restaurant), among others. Across the street is Legacy Lanes (bowling) and a couple of auto repair shops.
The Curry Commons address is 5001-5031 Curry Rd., Pittsburgh, PA 15236, just south of Whitehall Borough.
If someone were to rent a Curry vacancy from Burns & Scalo, what would you like to see happen there? What is needed in that area?
