Developers are proposing to put in a restaurant and retail space at the corner of Chamblee-Dunwoody Road and Mount Vernon Road to replace the car wash and former Phillips 66 gas station.
The approximate half-acre property is located in the Dunwoody Village Overlay District and is across the street from the city’s historic Cheek-Spruill Farmhouse.
Archie Wanamaker of Crim Development presented the plans for the 4,700 square foot building at the Aug. 14 Dunwoody Homeowners Association meeting.
Preliminary plans include a 1,800-square-foot to 3,000-square-foot restaurant.
Wanamaker said tenants are lined up but would not reveal who they were. He said national and local franchise restaurant chains are interested.
The space is too small for a chef-driven restaurant, he said. The restaurant will also not have a drive-through.
The current zoning only allows for 14 parking spaces and Wanamaker said the developers will be seeking 35 spaces. They still have to file plans with the city.
