LINCOLN HEIGHTS –– Starbucks is planning to convert a Burger King into a drive-thru coffee shop on the border of Boyle Heights and Lincoln Heights.
Starbucks has applied for a city business license and has requested that the Planning Department allow it to operate a drive-thru from 5 am to midnight daily at the northeast corner of Marengo and Cornwell streets, which is a block away from the giant hospital campus.
The Eastsider has asked Starbucks for more details about the store.
If Starbucks is successful, it will be the second time it has taken over a Burger King in the area. In 2014, a former Burger King reopened as a Starbucks at the corner of Olympic Boulevard and Soto Street in Boyle Heights.
