Starbucks is planning to build a drive-through-only coffee shop in the Rose Pavilion just off the I-580/Santa Rita Road interchange.
The Pleasanton Planning Commission approved the bid Wednesday night for a stand-alone kiosk in front of the 99 Ranch Market at the eastern edge of the pavilion. It will have no indoor or outdoor seats for customers, who will order their food and beverages either from drive-up or pedestrian walk-up windows.
Rose Pavilion is an 189,000-square-foot triangular-shaped retail center bordered by Santa Rita and Rosewood Drive. Major tenants in addition to 99 Ranch Market are Macy's Furniture, Carpetland and a new CVS Pharmacy, which replaced an older pharmacy building across from 99 Ranch Market that is now a Halloween costume store.
At Wednesday's meeting, the Planning Commission also considered a bid by Genius Kids to open a child daycare center and preschool with an outdoor play area in the Vintage Hills Shopping Center near New Leaf Community Markets on Bernal Avenue. The faciity would be on the Palomino Drive side of the center.
