Another automatic car wash has been proposed for a prominent Eden Prairie intersection, this time the southeast corner of Highway 5 and County Road 4 (Eden Prairie Road), where a Burger King once stood.
The Eden Prairie Planning Commission, which advises the city council, will hold a public hearing on the proposal at 7 p.m. Monday, Nov. 13, in the Council Chambers of the Eden Prairie City Center, 8080 Mitchell Road.
Indiana-based Crew Carwash is proposing two stone, concrete, and glass buildings at that site: one for washing cars and the other for cleaning car interiors.
The corner has been vacant for years. A Chicago franchisee, Cave Enterprises, had proposed to build a new Burger King to replace one that had closed at the intersection years earlier. Those plans were approved by the city in 2021, but the restaurant was never built and Burger King began looking for another buyer.
Coincidentally, plans for a different car wash — a Mister Car Wash — were approved by the city just last month at the other former Burger King site in Eden Prairie: across town at the corner of Flying Cloud and Prairie Center drives.
