Chicago — Starbucks Coffee Co. has unveiled plans to open a Starbucks Reserve Roastery in Chicago in 2019.
Located on North Michigan Avenue and Erie Street on Chicago’s Magnificent Mile, the Chicago Reserve Roastery will be the company’s third Roastery location in the United States, following Seattle, which opened in December 2014, and New York City, which is slated to open in 2018. The 43,000 square-foot space will be dedicated to roasting, brewing and packaging the company’s small-batch Starbucks Reserve coffees from around the world.
Tailored to the Chicago customer, the four-story building will offer multiple brewing methods, specialty Reserve beverages and mixology. Reserve Roastery locations also include breads and bakery items from Princi, an Italian artisanal bakery. Robert Wislow, Camille Julmy and Todd Siegel of CBRE represented the landlord, Gordon Segal, in the lease transaction. Segal is the founder of Crate & Barrel.
