Details of New McDonalds at 401 and 1010

The building will be turned 90 degrees and moved closer to 401.  Dual ordering windows follow the trend of others but the 3 side windows are unusual considering the employee area will go almost the full side length. 40 parking places are provided and appear to have space for 45+ seats.




Kaze Restaurant Expanding

A site plan is currently under review with Garner Planning that would allow Kaze to expand to a freestanding parcel next door.  The new space would be in the vacant lot between the current location and Timber Drive.   The new building is listed at 7,238 sq ft. with 201 seats and 69 parking spaces.

A similar plan for a 6,000-square-foot building is in the works for a portion of the largest undeveloped parcel in the quadrant, the 6.61-acre tract to the north of Panera Bread and Sheetz. A mix of uses appear to be in store for the entire parcel.

“It will be more of a retail layout with some possibility for an anchor or mini anchors and shop space,” Barta said. “Possibly a restaurant, but that’s to be determined. We have a fair amount of restaurants there and they are thriving, and we’re not opposed to more restaurants there, but were going to add some significant non-restaurant pieces to the White Oak area.”

Plans call for a single building, about 5,800 square feet and likely split for two tenants, on the one-acre lot to the west of Zaxby’s.
