Retail, office center on tap

first_imgPALMDALE – A retail and office center with a Chili’s restaurant and a Starbucks coffee shop is being proposed for 5.1 acres at Avenue S and 47th Street East. The Planning Commission last week approved a conditional use permit for Astani Development to develop a shopping center containing 63,464 square feet of building space just north of Avenue S and west of 47th Street East. “It’s going to be quite an attractive project,” said John Mayfield, chairman of the Planning Commission. “It’s going to be a welcomed addition to that area.” The planned Chili’s restaurant would cover 6,169 square feet. The Planning Commission approved allowing the restaurant to have alcohol sales. The Starbucks, which would be Palmdale’s fourth and the first on the city’s far eastside, would cover 1,800 square feet. Like the other three local Starbucks, it would have drive-through service. Other buildings that would be part of the complex include a 9,785-square-foot single-story, multiple-tenant retail building, and three two-story retail buildings that would total 24,210 square feet of retail and restaurant space on the ground floor and 21,500 square feet of medical and professional office space on the upper floors. None of the other tenants were identified. The project design proposes a Mediterranean architecture with tile roofs, exterior stucco and wainscot veneers, tower elements, cornice treatments and awnings. Proposed building colors are earth-tone colors with accent colors on awnings and other elements, according to a planning staff report. The center will have three access points – two on Avenue S and one on 47th Street East. The easternmost access on Avenue S will be shared with an existing Chevron/McDonald’s and would allow only right-turn movements. The westernmost driveway would allow both left- and right-hand turns.
