Buffalo Wild Wings is coming to St. Clair Shores to the location of the former Shorecrest Lanes, the mayor said Monday night.
Mayor Kip Walby announced the popular sports bar's plans—one of most anticipated, and long-rumored, developments in St. Clair Shores—during Monday's City Council meeting.
"We are really excited we were able to work with the developer and property owner," Walby said. "You should see a sign see a sign: 'Coming Soon: Buffalo Wild Wings' at Shorecrest Lanes."
There is no specific timetable for the development, as the city just came to an agreement with the developer who purchased Shorecrest Lanes Friday. The development has to go through the city's planning department and then come before City Council before construction can begin.
A former used car lot north of the property, on Harper, will also be razed for the project. Linda's Place, which is located on the corner of 9 Mile and Harper, will remain, the mayor said.
He added that the developer will also be looking for additional tenants for the property.
The intersection is highly traveled, according to city officials, with nearly 17,000 cars passing daily through 9 Mile and Harper.
Walby hinted other developments may be announced by the end of the year.
