A Starbucks near you may soon have a fresh, new look.
Two in-town Atlanta Starbucks locations are slated to undergo major renovations, according to What Now Atlanta.
The stores at The District at Howell Mill, 1801 Howell Mill Road, and Midtown Promenade, 931 Monroe Drive NE, are both in permitting to receive $150,000 in renovations. Although it remains unknown when the renovations would begin.
“Both refreshes will include new finishes, equipment, and furniture, plus a rearranged floor plan, according to the official filings,” What Now Atlanta reports. “Electrical and plumbing work will be part of the work orders, but nothing mechanical.”
Renovations to the Monroe Drive location, which will stay open throughout, come at the same time as changes to the overall plaza, located off the Eastside Beltline Trail.
Earlier this year, Charlotte-based developer Asana Partners acquired Midtown Promenade, which is also home to businesses such as Trader Joe’s, Midtown Arts Cinema and Richard’s Variety Store.
Asana Partners, which also owns Krog Street Market, is expected to start renovations on the shopping plaza in early 2020.
According to the Atlanta Business Chronicle, renovations to Midtown Promenade will include new facades, green space and Beltline connection.
It’s not known yet whether or not the Howell Mill Starbucks location will remain open during renovations.
The changes to the Atlanta locations is part of an overall push by the Seattle-based coffee company to modernize its stores.
Earlier this year, Starbucks said it will upgrade stores to focus on “convenience, comfort and connection.” The upgrades began over the summer in New York City, according to CNN.
