A new Starbucks is opening at 2360 Broadway on the northeast corner of 86th and Broadway, Commercial Observer reports. The 2,061 square foot retail space is part of The Belnord, a residential condo with an address of 225 West 86th Street.
It’s currently unclear when the new location will open.
This commercial space was last occupied by a Banana Republic, which closed around 2012 before moving across the street to 2373 Broadway where a Gap store had previously stood. (Gap Inc. (GPS) owns both The Gap and Banana Republic.) Both of these corners are currently devoid of activity.
From the listing page for 2360 Broadway, it appears that the new Starbucks will only be occupying part of the former Banana Republic Space, as the total available space is over 4,500 square feet (and the new Starbucks will only be a smidge over 2,000). So, expect something new to open next to the coffee chain’s new digs, at some point in the near or extremely distant future.
Here’s the listing page for 2373 Broadway, which also includes the former Gristedes which stood west of Broadway.
There are currently a lot of Starbucks locations on the Upper West Side.
