Alida Camp, who sits on the zoning and development committee of CB8, said it’s common for business owners to warehouse their spaces and move their restaurant or store to a new location if they believe their landlords are going to sell the property, which prolongs the time the storefronts will be vacant.
“Everyone gets thrown out because they're selling it or there's going to be a development — even before things happen,” said Camp. “So that also creates an environment where businesses are moving out.”
