New development being proposed at former Checkers in Chamblee.
Matt Wilson of Wilson Development Group is proposing a new building on Peachtree (Industrial) Boulevard. The new development would replace a long abandoned Checkers restaurant. The Checkers closed about five years ago, and since a Popeyes proposed a new restaurant in its place in early 2013, the parcel has sat idle.
Wilson proposes to demolish the existing 800 square foot structure to build a new, roughly 4,200 square foot building that would house three separate tenants.
1,300 square foot "takeout only pizza place"
1,300 square foot "restaurant"
1,625 square foot "cellphone retail store with associated parking and infrastructure."
Wilson is seeking a number of variances, among them one that would reduce the number of required parking spaces from 35 to 25.
The roughly .6 acre parcel is across the street from Chamblee Plaza.
Does this development excite you? What would you like to see open as the "restaurant?" What one type of business does Chamblee need?
