Have any options for a simple wash and dry, or perhaps a cheap laundry service?”

Thanks to all the readers who sent in word and photos. Does anyone happen to know if there are plans for this corner? I’ll be sure to keep my eye on it. It’s a great location – so I hope/imagine it won’t sit vacant for too long.
