Earlier this summer the Georgia-based fast food chain generated some local ire with news that it's planning locations in Tacoma and Lynnwood. You might remember Chick-fil-A's CEO generating some major national outrage last year over a comment he made about marriage equality (Eater National tracked the whole saga, from the first comment to the resulting scandal to the inevitable comedians' take on things.)
Now the controversial purveyor of fil-As has filed an application for a project number—the most preliminary of steps in the process of securing city approval—for a location near Northgate at 11001 Roosevelt Way NE, according to Seattlepi.com. According to the city Department of Planning and Development, the company hasn't technically even filed for a permit, just a project number. Countless rounds of reviews, discussions, submitted plans, site inspections, and other plannery things would have to happen before this could ever become a reality.
But, still. Whoa.
The company previously told news outlets in Tacoma and Lynnwood that those locations would take a few years, so it's safe to say the Seattle location would be the same if it comes to pass. This should be interesting.
