Where once you were able to rent the latest movies, soon you will be able to drink the latest coffee blends.
On the northwest corner of El Norte & Centre City Parkway, where there used to be a Blockbuster video store, there will soon be a Starbucks coffee house.
The Planning Commission approved the development plan for the project last December.
The project involves demolition of a 9,900-square foot building within the Del Norte Plaza Shopping Center, and construction of a Starbucks in its place. The new Starbucks will be about 2,300 SF in size, with an outdoor patio and a drive-thru window.
The developer is still working on getting the required building permits. The precise timeline for the construction is not available at this time.
