An anchor of the Village at Leesburg development is expanding.
Cobb Theaters has submitted applications to the town for a 13,000-square-foot expansion that will result in the addition of two more movie theaters. But, though the theater itself is expanding, it will actually result in a reduction of 100 seats. The additional square footage of the theater will be cantilevered over existing surface parking. No additional parking will need to be added, owing to the subtraction of seats.
To move forward with the expansion, the applicant must first receive approval on a concept plan and proffer amendment, as well as a special exception. If Thursday night’s Planning Commission is any indication, that may not be too hard. Commissioners unanimously approved both applications, paving the way for a final vote at the Town Council.
