LONE TREE, Colo. — In-N-Out Burger has submitted a proposal to the City of Lone Tree in hopes of building a new restaurant near the Park Meadows mall.

The California-based burger joint submitted a site improvement plan for the potential project on Thursday.

The plans call for taking over the space currently occupied by Suds Factory Car Wash & Auto Detailing Center at 9171 E. Westview Rd. That’s near East County Line Road and Yosemite Street. 

Construction of the restaurant would be done in a single phase and would take about six months to complete, according to the plan. The proposed building would be 3,867 square feet in size, and include an indoor and outdoor seating area that is capable of accommodating up to 80 guests. 

“The site will be well landscaped and will include the following: a fully-enclosed trash building, a 1,300-square-foot patio canopy, a drive-through with dedicated queuing for 26 cars, on-site parking for 47 guests, and excellent vehicle circulation with no “dead-end” parking aisles.

The plan will need to be approved by city officials before it goes before the planning commission and then the city council for approval. If they do approve the plan, a Lone Tree location could open by January 2021. 

According to the proposal, the restaurant would operate seven days a week, from 10 a.m. to 1 a.m. Sunday through Thursday, and from 10 a.m. to 1:30 a.m. on Friday and Saturday. In the proposal, In-N-Out said the restaurant, drive-thru, and parking lot, would be “well-lit and meticulously maintained.”

In February, In-N-Out Burger closed on two parcels of land in Colorado Springs, where plans for a distribution facility, office building and restaurant are currently in the works. The land is located in the Victory Ridge development near Interquest Parkway and Interstate 25.

The famous burger joint, known for its double-double burger and animal-style fries, is headquartered in Irvine, California. In-N-Out Burger currently has more than 300 fast-food locations throughout several western states including, Arizona, Nevada, Oregon, Utah and Texas.
