Recently, construction started on a new drive-thru Starbucks on the northwest corner of Buena Vista Street and Huntington Drive. In addition, to the 1,850 square foot Starbucks, the will also be a 2,600 square foot retail building that will provide space for one or two retail tenants. The developer, Genoa JRTH LLC, expects construction to be competed this summer.
The nearby Starbucks location will close as a result of this new location. The former Redevelopment Agency purchased this property, which was home to a poor looking gas station, in 2002 with the goal of developing the property with a strong commercial use that would benefit the community. This project will finally bring a great looking, strong use to a major local intersection. The project exhibits excellent architectural design and will be a welcome addition to the community.
This Starbucks location will include the unique Clover Brewing System featuring a single cup coffee brewing technology providing exquisite balance, depth of flavor, and aroma. The developer is in the process of leasing the remaining space in the project and hopes to have a tenant announcement in the next couple of months.
