Chick-fil-A could be targeting downtown Austin for a new location, according to plans filed March 5 with the state.

The popular chicken sandwich chain filed paperwork through the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation for a renovation project at 600 Congress Ave., Ste. C150, Austin, in the One American Center.

Despite the filing with the state, a statement from Chick-fil-A states it has "no new locations to confirm at this time."

"We are always evaluating potential new locations in the hopes of serving existing and new customers great food with remarkable service. We would very much like to have more restaurants in the Austin area," according to the statement.

The plans filed with the state list a construction start date in October for the $700,000 in renovations with an estimated opening in March 2021. The plans indicate the company would add new mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems in the 4,543-square-foot space.

As of March 11, no plans have been filed with the city. Austin-based Endeavor Real Estate Group, which handles leasing for 600 Congress Ave., responded that it has nothing to confirm regarding Chick-fil-A signing a lease.

Chick-fil-A has three locations near The University of Texas, so the Congress Avenue spot would be its first in the Central Business District. The chain has about 30 locations in Central Texas.
