Atlanta-based Chick-fil-A, which has been renovating its Jacksonville restaurants and building new ones, continues on that track with a permit in Mandarin and an application in East Arlington.

In Mandarin, the city issued a permit Nov. 30 for W.H. Bass Inc. of Duluth, Georgia, to build a restaurant and drive-thru at 11709 San Jose Blvd. at a cost of $800,000. Separate permits are needed for signs, the order canopy and trash enclosure.

The 3,569-square-foot building is planned on 1.03 acres at San Jose Boulevard and Acosta Road.

The site is in the Medical & Merchants Center of Mandarin.

Previous plans showed the restaurant will seat 38 inside and 16 on a patio.

Mark K. Salopek LLC of Cleveland is the architect. Bowman Consulting is the civil engineer.

East Arlington

In East Arlington, the city is reviewing a building-permit application for Chick-fil-A to build its drive-thru-only location at 11909 Atlantic Blvd. in the Atlantic North shopping center.

No contractor is listed for the estimated $800,000 project, described as a 2,468-square-foot building on 1.06 acres with a double drive-thru and no interior seating.

Mark S. Salopek LLC and Bowman Consulting are also working on that project.

Plans show 34 parking spaces with a 30-car stack, which can be 42 at peak. The stack is the number of vehicles that fit in the drive-thru lanes.

The Atlantic North shopping center is at northwest Kernan and Atlantic boulevards. The Chick-fil-A access is within the center and not directly off of Atlantic Boulevard.

Jacksonville-based Sleiman Enterprises is the property developer.
