Toxic locations

I’ve realised that there are a few spots on Upper Street where shops / cafes / restaurants / whatever open … And then close in a few months.  It’s always the same spots.

I don't think anywhere has lasted more than a year in this spot.

Now I know that this might be that the successful places open, do well and then stick around (like Ottolenghi).  But it seems weird that a few spots just seem to attract businesses that go out of business.  Are the rents too high?  Or too low? Or are there some spots aren’t that noticeable, even in a really central location?
