Great to see Starbucks open

Starbucks has been working on the buildout of their space at Broadway and Pike for 4-5 months and finally opened their doors today. One Starbucks store isn’t going to make a neighborhood but the investment will help add vitality to an intersection and corner. I commend them and the folks working there on their efforts to make the space feel like it’s been there for a long time and for integrating as much of the original architecture and detail as possible into the space. While I understand how many folks can get upset about Fortune 500 company’s presence on Capitol Hill, I think their presence is a great addition.
