    Coffee Lover Comments on New Urbanism

    This guy just loves Starbucks!!

    "Now, this is a first for me. The first of these newfangled town centres (gussied up outdoor malls, if you ask me) that includes living spaces. Lofts, in this particular case.

    Ain't that the life, though--having your Starbucks no further than a couple of flights of stairs away.
    "


    Starbucks at Orenco Station, Hillsboro, Oregon.

    Although Denver is packed with Starbucks, there aren't any in my old, rapidly gentrifying neighborhood ... not even in the New Urbanist infill community that was built a couple of blocks from my old house.

    This Starbucks isn't far away from what will be my new address outside of Kansas City.

    This one is a couple of miles away, on the Missouri side.

    So, Dan, you are moving to the "posh" Kansas side of the metro area?
