Dunkin' Donuts seeks another spot in Manchester
MANCHESTER — The region’s largest coffee shop chain wants to replace a small store near the Granite Street interchange with Interstate 293 with a restaurant will allow drivers to reload on caffeine without leaving their cars.
The Planning Board received notice Thursday night of a proposal to build a new Dunkin’ Donuts shop on a vacant lot on Granite Street, formerly owned by a city social club.
Reconstruction of ramps at I-293 and Granite Street forced the St. Raphael Social Club to relocate. After skirmishes over a new Granite Street location, the club moved to Blaine Street.
The site of the new shop is a couple of blocks from an existing Dunkin’ Donuts. But that doughnut shop does not have a drive-through window.
A public hearing will now be scheduled on the proposal.
In other action Thursday, the board gave new approval to a proposal for the city’s newest house of worship, a synagogue proposed by Lubavitch of New Hampshire.
Chabad Lubavitch synagogue would be a two-story, 7,000 square foot structure on a five acre lot at 2233 River Road.
A new configuration of lots on Sewall Street that will include construction of three homes was approved. And Catholic Medical Center workers will soon have a new place to park, as a CMC plan for a 24-space employee parking lot at Wayne and Notre Dame streets was approved.
