From Atwood and Hartford Avenues to Killingly Street and Plainfield Pike, Johnston has its fair share of vacant buildings. Some have been empty for years while others see a rotating crop of businesses.
But, if it were up to you, what would you like to see happen to these buildings? Each week, we'll feature one empty building, lot or area in Johnston and ask our readers what they'd like to see there.
This Week's Property:
Address: 350 Central Ave./1301 Atwood Ave. (just past the "new" )
History: This was the original home of Allendale Insurance, one of a group of insurance companies that eventually formed FM Global, which maintains its world headquarters just off Central Avenue, across the street from the now-vacant campus.
