Best Location for a New Starbucks Miami 2006 - NE 28th Street and Biscayne Boulevard

Sure, it's across the street from our offices. But hey, we're biased, sleep-deprived journalists who would love the convenience of skipping across the street for a caramel macchiato or a soy chai latte during our midafternoon writing slump. And with all of the new condos sprouting up between Edgewater and downtown, don't we really need a Starbucks in this neighborhood? A defunct (was it ever even open?) rug shop with an orange chimney has been cluttering the corner for too long, and we're tired of trudging through Biscayne Boulevard construction zones in order to reach the nearest baristas at 69th Street. Oh, people can say what they want about the monster coffeehouse that is taking over the world, but that serene mermaid in the green circle is a sign of a lively neighborhood, and this area could use a little polish. Naysayers should know that one of the company's guiding principles is "to contribute positively to our communities and our environment," and it does so through the Starbucks Foundation, which has given more than $11 million to organizations that provide literacy programs for children and families. Now if it could slow down Miami drivers, we might survive crossing the street for our java.

Another great money-making location: Jackson Memorial Campus. What I would give for a Cinnamon Dolce latte in the mornings. You'd think that on a huge medical campus chock-full of restaurants there would be at least one Starbucks.... [sigh]They would make a killing off of the Doctors, Surgeons and Med Students that fill this place. Not to mention, the rest of the Jackson Health Systems employees and the slew of patients and patients' families here.C'moooon Starbucks!!!!

This is great news. I have a loft on NE 30th and have to go to the Amoco station for my morning coffee. Hopefully this starbucks will start to pull other upscale retailers our way.
