MFT Interests Asset Manager Vinny Chiara with says that there is another new tenant for the Heights Central Station development. The Kolache Shoppe, which started on Richmond Avenue in 1970, will occupy the 1,200 square foot freestanding coffee shop fronting Heights Boulevard. They will offer Boomtown Coffee – and their signature Kolache’s through a drive-thru, and also offer counter service.
“The Kolache Shoppe, who is thriving in their existing location in Greenway Plaza has long been on our radar as the perfect fit for this space and a must-have for the Heights,” said Chiara. “We are very excited that they have chosen to call Heights Central Station home.”
The Kolache Shoppe was passed from its original owner Erwin Ahrens in 2014 to Randy Hines and his wife Lucy. Now the Hines are excited to expand the brand in the Heights.
“Lucy and I have been dining in the Heights for years and we are so appreciative of the neighborhood’s culinary diversity and excellence,” said Randy Hines. “Our upcoming location in the neighborhood will offer guests a wide variety of high-quality kolache and klobasnek flavors, many of which will stem from an increase in partnerships with local food vendors. We also plan to greatly expand our Boomtown coffee program.”
The Kolache Shoppe joins the restaurant Dish Society who has also leased the restaurant space in the building.
Chiara says there is approximately 16,000 square feet available for lease at Heights Central Station. That space can be leased as either retail or creative loft.
Construction will start later this summer. Gallant Builders will be the general contractor and Kirksey is the architecture firm.
