Starbucks will be the anchor of a new 7,500 square foot commercial shopping center in the heart of Martinsville, located on the corner of Commonwealth Boulevard and Liberty Street.
Lester Properties on behalf of The Lester Group has begun construction of the center.
Starbucks will occupy 2,500-square-feet of the facility that allows space for the chain to feature its new two-lane drive-thru model. The location also will provide customers an elevated outside seating experience 365 days per year as the patio features a full canopy with ceiling fans and heat lamps.
“We are extremely excited to partner with Starbucks to bring their brand and services to the City of Martinsville and Henry County,” Donna Morrison, VP of Lester Properties, said.
Construction of the building is projected to be completed in March 2022. Starbucks will then complete their interior construction and buildout and is anticipated to open before summer. The address for the new shopping center will be 101 Commonwealth Blvd West, Martinsville, VA 24112.
Two other businesses will be joining Starbucks in the center.
“We have a lease out for signature with one operation and another lease being finalized,” Morrison said. “We will release the other business names once we’ve been given approval to do so. We are very excited to partner with these two other operations and look forward to making a formal announcement to the community very soon.”
Only one vacancy of approximately 1,800-square-feet remains and is located next to Starbucks. The Lester Group is proud to continue building upon its promise of growing the local community by bringing new businesses and services to the area. Rooted in the community for 125 years, The Lester Group has taken pride in serving Martinsville. The Lester Group includes five building material locations in Virginia, real estate developments and properties throughout Virginia and West Virginia, three lumber treatment plants in North Carolina and a door company in Virginia.
