Plans presented to the Planning Board in 2018.
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The McDonald's on Union Street is in the process of being renovated inside and out with a more contemporary look. 
 
The plans were approved in November 2018 by the Planning Board and include the removal of the mansard roof and construction of a new patio area in the front. 
 
The fast-food burger chain launched the new look two years ago with plans to invest $6 billion to renovate most of its 14,000 locations by the end of 2020.
 
Changes include modernized dining areas with new furniture and "globally and locally inspired décor," according the release announcing the building overhauls in 2018. 
 
There will be a digital self-order kiosk and digital menu boards both inside and at the drive-thru; parking spots for mobile orders and pickup; and remodeled counters. 
 
During the renovations, the drive-thru and the dining area will switch being open as each is worked on. The drive-thru is currently open.
 
The restaurant opened in May 1969, reportedly the first in New England to offer inside dining with seating for 60 that was paneled in walnut and had red carpeting. The North Adams eatery was the latest of some 1,100 McDonald's at the time.
 
The Adams McDonald's is also in line for renovations. That restaurant opened in the late 1970s.
