America may run on Dunkin’ but Boston’s Seaport District increasingly runs on Starbucks.
The Seattle coffee giant plans to open its sixth cafe in the neighborhood this summer at 101 Seaport, a 17-story office building that is anchored by the regional headquarters of PwC. The café is scheduled to open this summer, according to a Starbucks spokeswoman.
In addition to Starbucks’ core menu, this store will feature the chain’s Reserve coffees that are roasted and blended at the company’s flagship Roastery in Seattle.
Starbucks is part of a flurry of retail openings in the 6.3-million-square-foot Seaport Square development. A CVS Pharmacy will open this summer at the 346-unit Watermark Seaport apartment tower, which also will contain a Shake Shack restaurant.
Newton-based WS Development acquired the retail condo portion of 101 Seaport in November for $9.7 million from developer Skanska USA. Other ground-floor tenants at 101 Seaport will include Yoki Express, Aceituna Mediterranean cafe and Chipotle, according to promotional materials.
