SPRINGFIELD, NJ – Summit is set to be 'bookended' by a pair of Chipotle Mexican Grill restaurants, despite not having one actually in the Hilltop City.

Demolition work has begun on the site that will be home to Chipotle Restaurant located at the corner of Cleveland Place and Morris Turnpike. Another Chipotle borders Summit's west side at 1260 Springfield Avenue in New Providence.

The Springfield Planning Board approved Springfield Parcel LLC / Brixmore's, the owner of the property at 697 Morris Turnpike, revised site plan for the Chipotle Restaurant at its December 2016 meeting. The application was first heard on October 5, 2016.

The application included a right turn only onto Morris Turnpike, enter and egress from further down on Cleveland Place, relocation of some of the outdoor dining and five bollards were included. Additionally, to alleviate some of the lot coverage overage “porous asphalt” will be utilized in the parking lot. The look of the restaurant has been changed to include more glass, more decorative lighting, etc.  The application was approved unanimously.

The Morris Turnpike location will be the second Chipotle in Springfield Township, with the first approved in 2009 and operating on Route 22. Fast food restaurants are prohibited by ordinance in Springfield Township. That issue was resolved by not designating Chipotle as fast food.
