POLL: Golden Arches Proposed on Gross Point Road

McDonald's developer needs green light from Evanston to move in to 27,000 square foot commercial space, which currently houses a beauty salon and other businesses, 'Evanston Now' reports.

McDonald's golden arches could someday grace Gross Point Road, if the developer behind the proposal receives approval from the City of Evanston, Evanston Now reports.

The 27,000 square foot property at 2500 Gross Point Road currently houses a beauty salon, aquarium maintenance shop and other businesses, according to Evanston Now. 

A number of hurdles exist before the project can move forward, including a review by Evanston's Site Plan and Appearance Review Committee, as well as approvals from the Zoning Board of Appeals and City Council, according to Evanston Now

Andy, my family has a very healthy diet, but the occasional stop at McDonalds is our choice. I am well aware of the ingredients we choose to put in our bodies. As most families with food allergies, we have to read every label of every thing we eat. Do you do that? Did you have to do that at 5 years old? It is not your place to judge what I feed my child. Try finding "healthy" alternatives that are free of dairy, nuts, and sesame and clearly labeled and prepared in such a way without cross contamination. Thanks for your input on what my daughter should and shouldn't have. My post just shared that McDonalds is a nice option when we want to grab a Happy Meal instead of what we usually do which is pack our own lunch from home.

The city could buy the property and create a parking lot.

I would like it if we had a McDonalds around here. Since I drive west to work, if I don't eat breakfast at home, I don't go to Starbucks, Subway or even Sarkis. I go to the McDonalds on Waukegan in Glenview.

I'll always be a loyal Little Island customer, but I totally support having McDonald's breakfast just a block from my house. Even if it means having to encounter the "hoodlums" of Wilmette and NW Evanston. Everything in moderation.
