ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Albany city commission gave the green light to demolish a building in order to build a new restaurant. 

A new Chick-fil-A will replace the former Sears Auto Center in front of the Albany Mall.

The existing Auto Center will be demolished and replaced with a 5,166 sqft restaurant with 114 indoor seating capacity and eight outdoor tables with a total of 32 seats. 

City Commissioner Roger Marietta said this will be a positive impact on the area because of the number of empty buildings.

"It's filling up one of those vacant buildings that Sears left and that's a blessing for the community and the fact that it's Chick-fil-A, I think everybody loves Chick-fil-A, that's just the icing on the cake," said Marietta.

Officials said construction will begin soon.
