A planning application has been submitted to Birmingham City Council for a ‘drive thru’ Starbucks coffee shop in Northfield.
The proposal would see the development of land, currently owned by Sainsbury’s, on the corner of Sir Herbert Austin Way and Vineyard Road, located between Sainsbury’s petrol station and Bellfield Schools.
If approved, the development will be one of 200 new ‘Drive Thru’ Starbucks being rolled out across the UK in a plan announced in 2011.
30 full and part time jobs would be created at the outlet which would feature 23 parking spaces, disabled parking and facilities and a “first-of-a-kind contemporary low level building design’.
John Liggins of property development company Ziran Land Ltd, comments: “Starbucks Northfield will see a vacant site regenerated, creating local jobs and serving as a social meeting place for residents, as well as parents of local school children who can use the parking spaces if they choose to enjoy a coffee with friends.”
