The redevelopment of the former Carson Ribs site is moving forward. The application for a drive through for Starbucks will be heard by the Zoning Board of Appeals on August 18th. While there was previously some uncertainty about Starbucks coming to the location, they have now agreed to move forward. Should anything change, another user would have to reapply (assuming they wanted a drive-through), as this application is specific to Starbucks.
Update: January 5, 2017
Good news! It looks like Starbucks is coming to the former Carson’s Ribs site, located at 5964-5970 N. Ridge Ave. Crossroads Ridge LLC has submitted a special use application to establish a one-lane drive-through facility for a Starbucks.
We look forward to the development of this property and will keep residents updated as more information becomes available.
