Update 4/29/2012: Thank you to Mr. J. Dean Loring, President and CEO of Burger Lounge Restaurants, who sent me this information regarding this space on Orange Avenue.
"I saw your story on eCoronado and wanted to let you know we tried for several weeks to work with the City to expand Burger Lounge into a portion of that space as we share the landlord, Mrs. Perley. The City informed us that parking is the primary issue and would not grant the permit for our proposed expansion. It makes no sense but the parking ordinance appears to have been created to prevent restaurant companies from converting existing retail to restaurant use."

Is there anything happening at the lifeless corner of 918 Orange Avenue? Well after a little digging, eCoronado.com can confirm…not much at all. As reported in a previous eCoronado.com post, there were rumors going around that the vacant space between Burger Lounge and the 76 Gas Station was going to turn into a jam shop. After dispelling this rumor, this prime piece of real estate on our main street remains unclaimed.
However, the property might be divided into two future retail spaces. Taking a clue from the rather large sign in the window of the building, I asked Miss Sheryll Jackman, of the Coronado based construction company, The Jackman Group, if she could elaborate about the current status of this property. She informed me that, “There have been no definitive decisions on the tenant mix in the two spaces that have been created as far as we know.”
Miss Jackman suggested that I contact Mrs. Jacqueline Perley, of P & G Properties. During our telephone conversation last week, Mrs. Perley advised me that there aren’t any concrete plans for 918 Orange Avenue.
