On the corner of 9th Avenue and 15th street located in the Meatpacking District of New York City, on December 14th, 2018 Starbucks opened the doors to their new Starbucks Reserve Roastery to the public. This is the second location in the United states that celebrates the heritage of roasting and the craft of coffee. This 23,000-square-foot location has three floors, three-hundred employees, and five bars:

  • The Main bar (Coffee)
  • The Experience bar (Coffee)
  • The Scooping bar (takeaway beans)
  • The Princi bar(pastries)
  • The Arriviamo bar (Alcohol and non-alcoholic beverages)

In the Cellar level there is a Terrarium inspired by Hacienda Alsacia, the Starbucks coffee farm in Costa Rica.

Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson says “We designed the Roastery as the pinnacle experience around all-things-coffee, and there is nothing else like it in the world. With premium coffees, teas, mixology, and the iconic Milanese Princi Bakery, it serves as a Starbucks brand amplifier and a platform for future innovation. It’s the Ultimate Starbucks experience and an unforgettable way to connect with our customers.”

In November of 2018 Mobility Elevator installed the Prestige Frameless lift into the Starbucks Reserved Roastery. This lift is a frameless half-inch structural tempered glass with no visible frame, making this lift the ultimate statement in barrier free access in commercial settings. A full-sized glass door is included for the lower landing and has a half-sized glass gate at the top. This lift can be configured for up to 6 feet of travel and can stop at 2 levels.

Being made from stainless steel and glass, The Prestige blends seamlessly and easily into various structures. Installing this lift, Starbucks Reserve Roastery can accommodate every customer that stops in for an unforgettable experience. Having installed this lift Starbucks Reserve Roastery now adheres to the purpose of Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliance.

Mobility Elevator was thrilled to take on this project because we are considered a premier accessibility and lift company for both residential and commercial markets.
