Developers Look to Build Longhorn Steakhouse near Fashion Square Mall
ALBEMARLE COUNTY, Va. (WVIR) - Developers want to bring a Longhorn Steakhouse to Albemarle County.
They are seeking to build the restaurant in the Fashion Square Mall parking lot bordering Route 29, in the area just south of the Wells Fargo Bank.
At a work session with members of the Architectural Review Board on Monday the company said it has adjusted site plans to accommodate the county's standards.
The number of trees and visibility in the area remains an issue with developers and the board.
The group is working to find a compromise that will allow the building to be visible from Route 29 without trees blocking the view.
