New Pantops Construction to Feature Drive-thru Coffee

January 28, 2014

Coffee drinkers may not be hard-pressed to find a fast option to get some caffeine by the end of the year.

New construction on Pantops Mountain in Albemarle County will house a drive-thru Starbucks Coffee shop.

The construction site is next to the Rivanna Ridge Shopping center, home to the Giant supermarket and current Starbucks store, at the intersection of Rolkin and Abbey roads.

Sources say the drive-thru coffee shop is part of the plans for that complex, which is currently a pile of dirt. Starbucks will move across the street to its new location, but there is no word on what will take the place of the coffee shop in the existing shopping center.

Sketches show a few other businesses are planned for the space, but there's no official word on what they may be.

Signs posted in the area say the center will be done by the end of the year.

Over the past few years, Pantops has seen a lot of development, most notably the addition of the new Martha Jefferson Hospital in 2011.
