Plans have now been approved for the construction of a nearly 4,000 square foot building that will serve as a new Colorado location for the In-N-Out Burger company.
That structure will be built at 9171 E. Westview Road in the city of Lone Tree in central Colorado and is only one facet of the chain’s ambitious plans for the Centennial State.
The Irvine, California-based In-N-Out Burger company is also making plans to build locations in both Colorado Springs, as well as Fort Collins, near the campus of Colorado State University.
The company is additionally putting up a 100,000 square-foot distribution center in Colorado Springs. The project should be completed and operational sometime next summer.
Members of the Lone Tree City Council have now given their approval to the Westview Road project, which will go up on a 1.5-acre site.
According to city documents, the Lone Tree In-N-Out location will have both indoor and outdoor seating space, along with an attached canopy and drive-though lane capable of accommodating around two dozen vehicles at a time.
The building itself will feature a stucco and stone veneer, with a roof made up of terracotta tiles.
The In-N-Out Burger chain currently has more than 350 locations in California, Oregon, Utah, Nevada, Arizona, and Texas.
Two existing structures at the Westview Road site - a Conoco gas station and the Suds Factory Carwash & Detail - will be demolished to make way for the new In-N-Out Burger store.
Work on the new Lone Tree location is scheduled to begin early next year, with an anticipated completion date of fall 2020.
