New Starbucks rising on Blockbuster’s ashes

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.
