The city's licensing board on Thursday approved a food service license for a Starbucks that plans to move into the new building at 11 West Broadway.
The national coffee-chain will fill a portion of the mixed-use building’s 8,000 square-foot ground-floor retail space that Stephanie’s, a Newbury street eatery, and Subway, a national sandwich chain, have also signed on to occupy.
It will have an opening hour of 5 a.m. and an 11 p.m. closing, according to city documents.
The six-story, 94,644 square-foot building, which is being developed by Ron Simons of the Natick-based Bodwell Pine Corporation, will house 50 rental units consisting of one and two-bedrooms.
The site at 11 West Broadway, adjacent to the Broadway MBTA stop and across the street from the Cornerstone Pub, was once the home of the old South Boston watering hole, The Quiet Man Pub.
The Boston Globe recently published an article looking at the changes happening in the bars' former home.
