Project Description: The proposal is to develop two lots over two phases of construction. Phase 1 will be the construction of a 2,000 SF Starbucks Coffee Shop building with drive thru lane to replace the existing Starbucks coffee shop located within Barksdale Station currently with no drive thru lane. The work in this phase includes grading, landscaping, and converting the currently unpaved parking area to a paved parking lot with 38 parking spaces. This parking area will serve the new building and the existing multi-tenant building to the east. Phase 2 of the project includes constructing a new approximately 3,000 SF building, providing utilities stubs to the building, and constructing approximately 31 additional parking spaces. A user has not been identified for Phase 2, but is anticipated to be a fast food use.
