Brick's planning board has given its OK for a Chick-Fil-A restaurant to be built in the Lowe's shopping plaza on Route 70 west.
Township Planner Mike Fowler confirmed that the board approved an application to subdivide a piece of the property in the shopping plaza that would allow the restaurant to be built.
"It's on the Lowe's property, in between Lowe's and Raymour and Flanigan," Fowler said.
The restaurant will be set back from Route 70 at approximately the same distance from the highway as the Raymour and Flanigan furniture store, Fowler added.
The restaurant chain has been planning a Brick location for some time. Initial plans before the board from the company date back to 2010, and some tweaks to the plan were made along the way. The restaurant will be conducted as a freestanding building on the newly subdivided lot the board approved.
