Athletic retailer files plans for new two-story space during major mall renovation.

Nike Inc. has big plans for its Lenox Square Mall location.

The athletic retailer submitted a building permit application with City of Atlanta Friday for interior renovations at the Buckhead Mall, Amy Wenk with the Atlanta Business Chronicle first reported.

An estimated $2.1 million will be spent on interior renovations to the 23,000-square-foot Lenox store.
