Development Review Manager Molly Hitchcock, Staff Planner Jennifer Reeves, Staff Planner Tammy Macik, Secretary SUBJECT: Papa John's Pizza Restaurant - request for the approval of the expansion of the restaurant into the former Smoothie King facility located at 601 University Drive, Suite 101 in Norlhgate(01-99) The NRB Review Subcommittee held a meeting on Wednesday, June 6, 2001 to review the above-mention item. Staff Planner Hitchcock opened the discussion by stating that Papa John's are looking to take over the Smoothie King area to expand their restaurant. Staff Planner Hitchcock also stated the applicants will be removing the awning and bringing out the front fagade for an archway with the addition of putting umbrellas on the outside tables. According to Mr. Kevin Kelly, the umbrellas are a separate issue. It is part of the landlord's improvements. Staff Mr. Keith Sullins stated that a typical Papa Johns building is about 1500 to 1600 square feet. Because of the location being right across from campus, they had decided to build the current 900 square foot building. Mr. Sullins also mentioned that he asked the landlord if Smoothie King ever goes out of business to let Papa Johns know and they will opened the door from the inside and take up the space. This will get them back to the 1600 square foot for a normal Papa Johns restaurant instead of just a pick up and delivery restaurant. Mr. Sullins stated also that Papa Johns started building arches instead of awnings to make it look more permanent. For the Northgate Papa Johns, they want to build the arch, which would extend 2 feet above the top of building. Furthermore, Mr. Sullins asked if they could build an arch where the awning is currently located and put the awning that is currently on Papa John where the Smoothie King sign is but shorten it. Commissioner Warren confirmed that they would have two signs. NRB member Abbott suggested that the signage of Home of Texas A&M University NRB Meeting Project. Papa John's Restaurant Date. June 6, 2001 Page 2 of2 one sign looks better as drawn on the plan. Mr. Sullins and Mr. Kelly both agreed that they don't have a problem with just one sign. Mr. Kelly stated they could hook on the arch and wrap around the sides of both buildings with several lines and have rounded ends. Commissioner Warren confirmed that they would have the small sign that is currently on the west side of the building and the proposed arch. Commissioner Warren asked for confirmation of the colors. Mr. Sullins stated that they will try to make the arch blend it with building but behind it will be dark red, instead of the green. You will barely see the red since the sign will be so much shorter than the usual arches on Papa Johns. Commissioner Warren was concerned with the height of Z feet. NRB Member Abbott confirmed that it is not really that high. Mr. Sullins stated that if you make it any shorter it would look squatty. The door will be under the current Smoothie King awning. There will not be a door under the Papa John's arch; that the wall will be become pure glass. Commissioner Warren asked if people were able to walk under the arch. NRB Member Abbott pointed out the arch will be almost against the wall so there really isn't room to even step under it. NRB Member Abbott made the motion to approve as is on the drawing. Commissioner Harris seconded and it passed 4-0. Home of Texas A&M Unl verslty
