Chick-fil-A has received approval to proceed with plans for a new restaurant in the Westown at Wilson development in Walker.
The city of Walker approved the final area site plan for a Chick-fil-A location at 320 Wilson Ave. NW at the city planning commission meeting on Sept. 2, according to the Walker Community Development Department on Wednesday, Oct. 7.
The plans were submitted by Cheryl Scales, principal, ProgressiveAE, on behalf of Todd Grasman, of Westown Commercial LLC, and Justin Lurk, principal development leader at Chick-fil-A corporate.
ProgressiveAE is the project’s architect, and the contractor was not listed.
According to the proposed site plan and planning commission documents, the plan is for a 4,988-square-foot restaurant with dine-in and a double drive-thru in the commercial portion of the Westown at Wilson development, on the site of the former German Village at Lake Michigan Drive NW and Wilson Avenue NW, in the Standale neighborhood.
A construction timeline and estimated opening date have not yet been set, according to a Wednesday, Oct. 21, statement from Chick-fil-A.
“While we are excited to be moving closer toward a Chick-fil-A restaurant in Walker, we do not have any updates to share on timing. We look forward to joining the community and serving all of our guests with great food and genuine hospitality,” the statement said.
