Plywood arrives for the incoming Starbucks on St. Mark's Place and Avenue A



Workers started putting up the plywood on the corner of St. Mark's Place and Avenue A yesterday.

As we first reported on Monday, the paperwork is on file at the Department of Buildings for a Starbucks in this now-combined corner space that previously housed Nino's and Hop Devil Grill.

No word on a tentative opening date just yet for the Starbucks. There are other questions too, as posed by @EdenBrower, who took the above photo...

I'm surprised they did not take the park side storefronts instead of the street. May the Ave A side will become another "new playground gastro pub".

I hope it reaches from st marks and A to Zucotti Park. It will be tremendous! I only like big Starbucks not small loser Starbucks.

Yes, we made the Public Forum.

A special district will encourage retail diversity and better promote small and independent businesses.

“Yes, I support a Special District in the East Village that will help protect our unique character, reduce the growth of big box stores and allow smaller local shops to have a better chance to serve or community and protect local jobs.”
