Though the Castro has little love for chain stores, empty storefronts are a big concern in a neighborhood with a retail vacancy rate of 6.9 percent, or nearly twice the city's average of 3.8 percent. Neighborhood groups including the Castro/Upper Market Community Benefit District and the Duboce Triangle Neighborhood Association have launched the Castro/Upper Market Retail Strategy, a multiyear effort to study the district's needs and develop a strategy for filling the vacancies. Expect results from the survey portion of the project in June. [Previously; Curbed inbox]
