Fans of coffee and donuts may soon have a new stop on their morning commute.

Williamsburg’s Planning Commission will review a site plan for the construction of a new commercial building at its Jan. 18 meeting.

Dunkin Donuts has requested approval of the site plan, which proposes the construction of a two-unit building at 1317 Richmond Road in Midtown.  The proposed building, if approved, would be accessible via the traffic light across from Mount Vernon Avenue, according to meeting documents.  The light also allows access to Walgreens.

According to the commission memorandum, Dunkin Donuts would occupy 2,000 square feet of the building and another tenant would occupy 1,300 square feet.

The Planning Commission is an advisory board, and if the seven-person commission votes to approve the site plan, Dunkin Donuts’ proposal will go before the City Council for a final determination.

According to the meeting memorandum, the Architectural Review Board approved the building design at their Oct. 15 meeting, and the Site Plan Review Committee recommended approval of the site plan in December.

Dunkin Donuts currently operates another location at 1347 Richmond Road.
