Starbucks is opening what may be considered one of its most elaborate locations in the country in the seaside town of Blaine this Thursday morning, July 26 at 4:00 a.m. Located at 530 Peace Portal Drive, the 2,650-square-foot building was inspired by the nineteenth century historic Blaine lighthouse that once stood at the entrance to Semiahmoo Bay.
In addition to an indoor spiral staircase and magnificent outdoor fireplace, the building has an impressive 48-foot-tall lighthouse tower. Starbucks is the anchor tenant of Skye Hill Station and is adjacent to the new Blaine Welcome Center which also opened recently.
Come up to the seaside town of Blaine and enjoy a cup of coffee and the sunny open aired patio area of Skye Hill Station. Developer Mike Hill and his wife Skye have dreamt of building a location for the popular coffee chain in Blaine for over a decade. Mike plans to be up early to receive the first coffee served at Starbucks’ new location at 4:00 a.m.!
