WILLIAMSBURG — Williamsburg's first Starbucks will be opening its doors this summer.

The new location of the Seattle-based chain, 405-409 Union Ave., will debut mid-summer, a company spokeswoman said.

It marks the first time Starbucks is opening in the area largely devoid of the chain that's ubiquitous in Manhattan. Only one other location exists in the North Brooklyn area, in Greenpoint, at 910 Manhattan Ave.

Last year, reports floated online of the new location after a tipster notified Eater of job listings for the company.

The new Starbucks is on the ground floor of a luxury rental condo building at the corner of Union Avenue and Ainslie Street, where a studio recently rented for $2,300 per month, according to StreetEasy.

Beyond the typical mocha latte and Frappucino fare, the Williamsburg Starbucks will offer Starbucks Reserve, its collection of small farm coffees, and the Clover Brewing System, the spokeswoman said.
