Not a Modular, doesn't fit on the street with the others.
For larger buildings, I'd love to see:
Roller skating/arcade would be a ton of fun.
As far as speculation goes, I'd be a big fan of a university (currently trying to MOC one, there's so much potential for content), a postal office (been wanting one since my first modular!), a museum (there was a great 32x32 submission to ideas that didn't pass, and nothing has reached that level since). I'd also be a big fan of a park (there might be one in the next wave of the Brickset Invitational), since I'm not a fan of the Chinese one which had very limited availability and didn't even look like it was meant to be compatible (that sidewalk is just too different).
I think we're meant to see the Avenger's Tower as the next superheroes modular, so I'm curious to see where that goes, but I do worry about the price tag since it's a huge license and all.
Museum would be fun because there is so much you could do with it. I could see Lego incorporating some kind of lego history into that.
I also think a construction site is something that could add a lot of character to the modular lineup. Scaffolding. Caution tape. A crane would look sooooo good too. Maybe only half of the building would be getting renovations, so we'd have the opportunity to have some smaller shops or even a residence incorporated. Maybe an old man getting angry at all the construction noise.
A factory could be interesting too. Maybe a brick factory?
It's a shame Lego could never really have...a shoe store lol
Also, maybe some kind of sandwich shop/deli? Instead of another cafe.
legoleak spoiler time: #10321 Is McClutchski's Hardware Store - From the front, a similar format to the Bookstore, but mirrored if that makes sense. It's another 50s inspired pastiche and McClutchski himself is in a flat cap and classic brown janitor's overcoat. Next-door is a cobblers, a poster for LEGO-proof footwear "Steppenwolves" hangs in the window. It is divided from the Hardware store by a 6 wide covered alleyway that runs down between the two ground floor buildings. 'Brickkety Splits' is a speakeasy nightclub situated behind the Cobbler's shop. The nightclub sign shows a cracked brittle brown brick. Mind out for the dumpster fire in the back alley beyond!
The second floor runs across both shops and is mostly given over to what appears to be two 60s styled bijou apartments apparently owned by twin sisters? A cool new pair of fire escape components has been produced with a retractable ladder.
The third floor has another apartment, this time more of a penthouse aesthetic - a rotating wall leads to a spy's secret munitions and tech store room.

They look pretty cute! But I'm assuming they lack a lot of fun detail that the official lego sets have.

Couple of exhibits inside, one with a classic spaceman (of course!) and another with the constellations?
A library could be neat but I feel like it'd still need some other hook to make it unique and keep it from just feeling like rows and rows of shelves.
But a well designed library could be a really fun addition to the line. However, after the disappointing amount of books in the bookstore... I fear how sparse a library would end up looking in modular form.
Would also neatly allow the offering of a van/flatbed lorry for deliveries (or maybe the local builder firm?)
The high-tech ones have to be as isolated as possible, and building one atop a mountain can be difficult but makes you benefit from being farther from city light and having less atmospheric turbulence since they're so high.
You sometimes see smaller one near small towns, usually built/planned before the town grew. They won't be as productive though, and will be limited to studying very bright objects, or to teach students from nearby universities the basics.
