The old Skipper’s restaurant at the corner of SW 148th and Ambaum Blvd. SW is currently undergoing renovations to become a Starbucks, according to Dan Trimble, Economic Development Manager for the City of Burien.
The 3,300 square foot restaurant, located on a nearly-25,000 s.f. plot of land at 901 SW 148th Street, housed a Skipper’s Seafood & Chowder restaurant until closing in May, 2009.
It then re-opened under new ownership, who struggled to make ends meet before closing again in Sept. 2013.
It is unknown if this new Starbucks will be a “regular” one, or perhaps more of the new “Grande” specialty/roastery stores. There are also rumors of it being a 24-hour drive-through.
An opening date has not yet been set, and when we contacted Starbucks to get more information, all they told us was:

“We’re always looking for great new places to open stores, so it is possible. I however do not have access to that information. I am sorry for any inconvenience…”
