GRAFTON — The Grafton Plan Commission gave an informal
go-ahead for planning to proceed on a planned
multi-tenant building next to Meijer.
proposal calls for four units on a Meijer outlot on Port
Washington Road. Plan Commission review of the concept
plan was requested by developer Berengaria Grafton LLC,
which already has tenants for two of the four units. A
report assembled by Jessica Wolff, village director of
planning and development, said the tenants would be
Heartland Dental – a national dental services chain –
and Firehouse Subs, which serves hot subs. Wolff’s
report also said that the company working on the
development would have tenants lined up for the
remaining two units before final site and planned unit
development is planned for a 1.5-acre lot north of
Meijer’s main driveway, 1600 N. Port Washington Road.
Wolff’s report shows there will be a 9,750-square-foot
building and a 65-space parking lot for the four-tenant
center. The four tenant spaces will range from 1,600 to
3,480 square feet each.
Wolff said the Plan Commission did not take formal
action on the concept plan, but gave the nod for
Berengaria to proceed. The site plan will require
approval from the Architectural Review Board and then
the approval with a PUD recommendation from the Plan
Commission before it can go to the Village Board, which
is scheduled for February of the new year.
Berengaria Grafton LLC is part of the Marcus
business plan of operation for Heartland Dental shows
they would be open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to
5 p.m. It would have 12 employees and receive daily
deliveries. Firehouse Subs would have six employees,
according to the plan of operation, with hours from
10:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. seven days a week. The restaurant
would receive about two deliveries per week by
semi-truck. Neither business is projected to cause
negative impact on the surrounding area, according to
the plan documents.
