What Should Go Here?

The old Watershed space has been empty since summer. What would you like to see moving into that spot?
There's a void on West Ponce.

The former gas station was occupied by Watershed, a groundbreaking restaurant where chef Scott Peacock served updated Southern classics.

Watershed helped put Decatur on the map for foodies, but last August the owners closed and relocated to a space in Buckhead, which is supposed to open in the spring.

The old spot in Decatur remains empty, though the Watershed sign still stands in the parking lot as a reminder of past days.

What kind of business would you like to see moving into the Watershed space? And do you think any business will have a hard time shaking off the Watershed reputation?

About this column: Every week or so, we'll post a picture of a vacant store or lot in Decatur and Avondale Estates. You can tell us what you think should replace the empty space. Know of an empty building we should highlight? E-mail
