The way was cleared Thursday night for further expansion of a West Garden Grove commercial center by the city planning commission.
Planners unanimously approved a proposal by Cinema Management, Inc. to turn a vacant former bowling alley in the West Grove Center, 12141 Valley View St., into a smaller building and leave room for more development.
The structure would be reduced in size from 33,375 square feet to 19,296-square feet to accommodate a 12,082-square foot anchor tenant and three new restaurants with a square footage of 7,214 square feet.
Also proposed and approved is a request to construct a new drive-through coffee store on the site. The artist’s rendering shows a Starbucks at that location.
Earlier improvements in the center included a car wash, a Jack-in-the-Box drive through restaurant and the renovation of an existing movie theater complex.
