After months of work, Harris Beach partner FL Gorman, with support from attorney Rob Townsley, helped Chick-fil-A gain approval to open in Delaware Consumer Square in Buffalo.
DLC Management, owner of the plaza, plans to demolish an existing 9,600-square-foot building with three retail tenants and replace it with a 5,400-square-foot quick-serve restaurant. It would be managed locally, and employ 12o to 140 people. FL and Rob guided developer DLC Management through their proposal to fully comply with the city’s Green Code, so that the project did not require any variances or zoning changes.
“Over the past several months, the Applicant and its team have evaluated and refined multiple site plans and elevations, to make (the) Project consistent with the zoning parameters…and the Zoning Board’s request to provide an urban style restaurant development,” FL was quoted as saying in the Buffalo News.
