BW3 defies city's request

August 20, 2008
BW3 IndianapolisBuffalo Wild Wings has responded to the city's beef with its Washington Street façade by submitting a new plan showing the exact design it already constructed. The city asked the developers of the restaurant at Washington and Meridian streets for a redesign after they failed to submit plans as required by city code. BW3 franchise owner Pete Watson met with city planning officials in early August to discuss the restaurant’s unapproved facade and promised to have his architect submit proposed changes, even as workers continued with the installation of signs and awnings. The work has not stopped, and apparently BW3 has no plans to cooperate with the city. "I specifically asked them not to (submit the same plan) very early on and have already called them asking them to try again," Senior Planner Jeff York said in an e-mail. He called the submission, which still includes restrooms against the front facade and a yellow exterior, "completely unacceptable." (Photo/Circle and Squares)
