The first brick and mortar Starbucks in Long Island City will open its doors at 26-14 Jackson Avenue on Friday, Aug. 11, a spokesperson for Starbucks said in an email to The Court Square Blog.
“We are excited to welcome the community,” said Starbucks Manager of Global Communications Maggie Jantzen.
‘Coming soon’ signage appeared on the space earlier in the week,1 and on Wednesday, crews peeled away construction paper to reveal the interior, as seen in the photos below.
The space was formerly occupied by the sales office for the nearby Dutch LIC.
The Court Square Blog was the first to report that the coffee shop was coming to the space in May.2
