Chick-fil-A’s planned store at North Point Village Center will be 58 percent bigger than the current Burger King building that occupies that location.

Chick-fil-A plans to tear down the Burger King building to build the new restaurant. In its place, it plans a new restaurant with an exterior that better coordinates with existing buildings at North Point, according to a Fairfax County Planning Department staff report.

The Burger King space at 1490 North Point Village Center has been vacant since March of 2014. Chick-fil-A filed its applications with the county in November. Chick-fil-A has an existing location at 12160 Sunset Hills Rd., about 2 1/2 miles away.

The staff report recommends approval of the project, which will have a public hearing before the county planning commission on March 16 at 8:15 p.m.

Some of the development conditions include:

  • Screening the trash dumpsters
  • Adding secure bike racks
  • Installing water-efficient landscaping
  • Using environmentally conscious building materials
  • Using EnergyStar-certified appliances

The Reston Planning and Zoning Committee has expressed concern that going from the drive-thru to the shopping center’s exit will involve a complicated U-turn. Chick-fil-A reps said the North Point exit lane will be widened to 12 feet, but that the area between the drive-thru and the village center exit would not be changed.
