ALGONQUIN – Construction on a new Dunkin’ Donuts in Algonquin could start as early as this spring.
The Algonquin Committee of the Whole heard plans Tuesday for the doughnut and coffee shop, which would include a drive-thru and indoor and outdoor seating spaces at 4029 W. Algonquin Road.
The 1.8-acre lot currently is vacant, and the new building would be about 2,000 square feet, according to village documents.
“This is a great project; they have a really good site plan,” Algonquin Community Development Director Russell Farnum said.
Brown-toned face brick will be the main building material, and the base of the building will have brown-toned stone, according to initial plans.
There will be 18 parking spaces, which is short of meeting code requirements but sufficient, as most customers are expected to use the drive-thru, according to village documents.
The hours of the business would be from 4 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.
The project will come before the Algonquin Village Board at its next meeting, 7:30 p.m. Dec. 6 at Ganek Municipal Center, 2200 Harnish Drive.
Another Dunkin’ Donuts recently opened in the village on East Algonquin Road.
