Starbucks in the works for The Boulevard complex in Yaphank


Long Island’s newest Starbucks is being planned for Yaphank.

The coffee chain giant is set to join The Boulevard, a 322-acre mixed-use complex on the corner of the Long Island Expressway and William Floyd Parkway.

Spokespeople of AVR Realty Co., the developers of the property, appeared before the Brookhaven Town Planning Board on Nov. 20 to unveil the plans for the new location.

The Starbucks will be in The Shoppes section of the complex — the retail area anchored by the 197,000-square-foot Walmart Super Center.

The Yaphank Starbucks, situated in front of Walmart, will be an end-cap location of a shopping strip, with room for 34 seats indoors, as revealed in the plans. There will be no drive-thru, but there will be a large outdoor patio.

“[Starbucks] likes this location because of the outdoor seating abilities,” the spokesperson said, adding that they could accommodate another 34 seasonal seats outside.

It was unclear from the meeting when they expect to open the Starbucks.

In addition to Walmart, The Shoppes at The Boulevard is also home to Southpaw Brewing Company, Yaphank Wine & Spirits, Signature Hair Salon, Northwell-Go Urgent Care, Ridgewood Savings Bank, and a Hilton Home 2 Suites Hotel. Monti’s Barbershop, Bagel Boss, and Tropical Smoothie have also been announced for the area but have not opened yet.

Northwell Health is in the process of building medical offices and a surgical center in the complex. New buildings catered toward restaurants are being erected on the site.

Construction has been underway at The Boulevard, which is the former home of the Parr Meadows horse track, since 2014 and will likely continue through 2026.

In addition to the retail area, the property, when completed, will feature nearly 1,000 housing units — including apartments, condos, and townhomes.
