Starbucks is planning a coffee shop on the corner of Boulevard NE and North Avenue.
The chain this week submitted a rezoning application to the City of Atlanta seeking the necessary approvals for the “construction of a Starbucks restaurant” on two adjacent parcels, at 619 and 625 Boulevard.
Only one of the parcels—625—would have to be rezoned while the other parcel, currently home to Premier Chronic Pain Care, at 619 Boulevard NE, is already in a “C-1” or “Community Business District” zone, according to the filing.
A point person for the filing confirmed the application with What Now Atlanta but was not able to comment on the plans Thursday and Starbucks corporate was not immediately reachable by telephone or email.
Another powerhouse food and beverage chain is undergoing a similar rezoning process on the same City block.
Chick-fil-A is looking to build a new location from the ground-up on the corner of Boulevard NE and Ponce de Leon Avenue, just 0.1 miles north of the planned Starbucks.
