world's largest starbucks coffee branch to open in chicago

a four-storey, 43,000 square feet starbucks will be opening in chicago in 2019 and become the coffee giant’s largest branch in the world. to be located in chicago’s magnificent mile district, the new roastery will be much like its flagship seattle location –which was the most successful store opening in the company’s history– and will be a fully sensorial coffee environment dedicated to roasting, brewing and packaging its rare, small-batch starbucks reserve coffees from around the world.

today, with more than 25,000 stores around the globe, starbucks has yet to announce the architect of the expansive building. from the visualization, there will be four floors of window-wrapped façade with a rooftop terrace; the prime location will no doubt attract locals and tourists from around the world when it opens in 2019.

 

‘having opened our first starbucks store in chicago nearly 30 years ago, our first outside of seattle, this is a very special city for me. at the time, it was a true test for starbucks because the chicago customer is so savvy and discerning about their coffee,’ said howard schultz, starbucks executive chairman. ‘chicago is a city of neighborhoods, so we took our time to find an incredible space to match the unprecedented coffee experience our premium roastery will offer. to be located on one of the best-known retail streets in the world is a proud moment for all of us and we can’t wait to bring chicago and the world a coffee experience worthy of their most premier real estate.’
