CROWN POINT | A planned Dunkin Donuts store is expected to open by late summer on Broadway south of 109th Avenue.

A spring start of construction is planned, project designer Diane Duncan said.

The single-story, 2,500-square-foot store is to be built on a 1.37-acre site on the west side of Broadway, south of an existing Speedway gas station. Food preparation will occupy more than 40 percent of interior space, with the rest used for patron dining, according to the plans.

A red brick exterior planned for the building met with approval by the Crown Point Plan Commission for its compliance with architectural design guidelines set by the city for buildings on Broadway.

The guidelines established in the late 1990s call for conformance to a Colonial Williamsburg style.

"If Dunkin Donuts can do it, anybody can do it," planning board member Dan Rohaley said of the approved exterior design.

Owner Dave Patel agreed to the board's request that Williamsburg elements also be added to a monument sign proposed for the site.

Drive-thru traffic off Broadway is to be directed in a one-way, circular pattern around the store. A lighted directional sign at the entrance to the drive-thru was approved.
