Buck lake alliance works with IWC and leon County on fallschase restaurant site plan
The Buck Lake Alliance (BLA) met with IWC representatives and the Leon County Department of Development Support & Environmental Mgt. to discuss the proposed Island Wing Restaurant in the Fallschase Village Center. At that time, IWC presented a draft site plan for the restaurant. As a result of that discussion, a number of significant issues were raised, particularly the size of the restaurant (proposed 11,427 square feet) and the parking lot design. Suggestions for addressing the size of the restaurant (overage of 1,427 sq. ft.) and redesigning the parking lot to be more environmental friendly were presented. Other issues were also discussed, e.g., on-street parking, landscaping, the exterior architectural design, addition space between the street and the front of the restaurant.
The architect for the Island Wing Company, BKJ, Architecture, Inc. reduced the size of the restaurant by 684 sq. ft., redesigned the parking area, as well as agreeing to hire a professional landscaper to identify native plants of North Florida.
The BLA Board approved the total Island Wings Company restaurant of 10,744 square feet—inside and outside space for the following reasons:
The BLA will be reviewing the revised IWC restaurant site plans, attending the upcoming Development Review Committee meetings and providing additional feedback on the revised site plans.
