Nashua planning board to discuss proposal to build health club, Chick-fil-A
On Thursday, the Nashua City Planning Board will be presented with a proposal to construct a two-story health club and standalone Chick-fil-A drive-through restaurant at 375 and 379 Amherst St.
DeMoulas Super Markets Inc. of Tewksbury, Mass., currently owns the retail property, which will be demolished to allow for the new development.
This will be Chick-fil-A's second restaurant in New Hampshire if approved by city planners. There is currently a Chick-fil-A kiosk at the Pheasant Lane Mall in Nashua, however the newest proposal includes a standalone, 5,000-square-foot restaurant with a drive-through.
The proposed 45,000-square-feet fitness club will be a tremendous asset to the area, according to Matthews, who said it is too premature to identify the new health club tenant near Trafalgar Square.
In addition to the two separate buildings, the proposal includes utility and landscape improvements, regrading of an existing driveway, additional catch basins and new parking.
An onsite sidewalk is being proposed, however, the developers are requesting that the Planning Board waive a requirement to construct a separate sidewalk along Amherst Street.
The board will meet at 7 p.m. Thursday at Nashua City Hall to review the proposal.
