could a Starbuck's be an addition to 79th Street? I don't think it would be a bad addition, but let's also bear in mind that there is a perception that Starbuck's signals gentrification and there would be concern about that.
I also want to note that there is already a Starbuck's across the expressay on 87th in the Chatham Ridge Shopping Center that contains a Harold's Chicken Shack, Food 4 Less, Home Depot, & ICE Chatham 14 Theaters. This is just right across the street from the shopping center that contains a Jewel and Best Buy.
Oh yeah the CAPCC blog would like to see a Starbuck's located at the SW corner of 79th and St. Lawrence. Here's the scene from that corner. There is currently nothing there now!
