Contrary to some rumors, McDonald’s has not closed its doors for good and it being torn down for something else. Three and a half years after being approved for an application to expand by the Municipal Land Use Board (MLUB), McDonald’s on the corner of Westfield Avenue and Locust Street will be closed, for at least four months, in order to remodel and expand.
In December of 2012, it was stated that McDonald’s would expand to include two properties and that the food chain and Krahnert Realty, Inc. will have an agreement to lease the property on 112 West Westfield Avenue for 60 years. According to the application, McDonald’s will expand to over 3,900 sq. ft., have a side-by-side drive-thru, and increase parking to 37 spaces.
McDonald’s has been in Roselle Park for 35 years at that location. It was previously a Jack-In-The-Box.
Calls left for a comment from the owner of the McDonald’s restaurant were not returned in time for this article.
