There is going to be a new place to get your coffee and tea fix on as the popular U.S. coffee and tea cafe chain The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf comes to Ward Village's forthcoming South Shore Market, located below the T.J. Maxx. Read more from The Pacific Business News, below:
The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf is opening a new shop in the space below T.J. Maxx at Ward Village in Honolulu that will include a mix of retail and restaurant tenants, Pacific Business News has learned.
The Howard Hughes Corp. (NYSE: HHC), the developer of the 60-acre Ward Village master-planned community in Kakaako, is currently building-out its “South Shore Market” project, which will include some tenants moving from Ward Warehouse, as first reported by PBN.
Last week, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf pulled an $850,000 building permit with the City and County of Honolulu’s Department of Planning and Permitting for a new location at the South Shore Market at 1170 Auahi St.
Honolulu-based Sullivan Family of Companies, which also owns Foodland Super Market Ltd., owns The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf Hawaii franchise.
The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf is owned by International Coffee & Tea, LLC, headquartered in Los Angeles. The chain has more than 950 stores in the U.S. and around the globe.
Some food and beverage and retail tenants from Ward Warehouse, which eventually will be developed into a high-rise luxury condominium project, are expected to open at South Shore Market, as well as other new tenants.
The South Shore Market project will include both indoor and outdoor seating, with the outdoor portion opening up toward a nearby park.
Todd Apo, vice president of community development for The Howard Hughes Corp., told PBN that the developer has no comment at this time.
