City to BW3: Not so fast

July 30, 2008

Buffalo Wild Wings IndianapolisCity planners are seeing red over the bright yellow facade at a new Buffalo Wild Wings under construction along Washington Street downtown. Turns out the developers won approval for a sign package with awnings but didn't submit any facade changes, as required by city code. The city has alerted the owner to the problem and plans to issue a stop-work order if necessary. The new look is "very distracting" and "takes away from the entire streetscape," said Jeff York, a senior planner. "They wholly did not get approval for what they're doing there." Franchise owner Pete Watson could not be reached this morning. He owns 12 BW3 locations, including stores in Castleton, Fishers, Broad Ripple and Greenwood.
