At four stories tall and 43,000 square feet, the largest Starbucks in the world is opening on the Mag Mile, Mayor Rahm Emanuel announced Wednesday.
The Starbucks Reserve Roastery will open in 2019 at 646 N. Michigan Ave., currently the home of Crate & Barrel’s flagship store.
“The interactive space will be designed to bring coffee craft to life by offering multiple brewing methods, specialty Reserve beverages and mixology,” Emanuel said in an announcement.
Chicago has no shortage of Starbucks Downtown and, about 30 years ago, was the first city to open a Starbucks outside of Seattle. The Mag Mile roastery will be the third, and biggest, for Starbucks.
“Chicago’s Magnificent Mile brings in millions of visitors from across this globe and is the perfect location for a world-class coffee destination,” Emanuel said.
