Question of the Day: Is Chase Bank a Good Replacement of Hastings?
Chase is requesting a new zoning variance.
Chase Bank has requested three variances from DeKalb County to build a new branch on the site of the former Hastings garden and nature store.
Hastings closed its doors to relocate its business to Peachtree Corners in August 2011 following its announcement that it developed a new and unique retail concept that required new additional space.
Since then, many businesses have scouted the site - among those were Chase Bank.
Brookhaven community leaders and LCI proponents are concerned that the recessed building Chase is requesting along with some other requests goes against the LCI in maintaining a walkable community and has created an online petition to fight it.
