Australian-inspired specialty coffee roaster, café, and lifestyle brand Bluestone Lane this month will open in The Avery, at 488 Folsom St., according to a press release this week.
Slated to debut April 15, 2021, the new Bluestone Lane is one of at least 15 locations coming online this year, “making Bluestone Lane one of the fastest-growing premium cafés in the country and among the Inc. 5000’s fastest-growing private companies based in NYC.”
“Bluestone Lane built a loyal following in bustling cities, where our locals could enjoy their daily escape with premium coffee and a healthy meal,” Nicholas Stone, Bluestone Lane founder and CEO, said in the announcement. “Many locals have moved to the suburbs, but we also know that major cities like New York aren’t going away. So our expansion plan includes both. Today’s Bluestone Lane experience pairs contactless digital ordering without losing the personalized Australian hospitality that we are known for. We are excited to bring that experience to even more locations in 2021.”
With the success of a test pilot at Bluestone Lane’s Los Altos café, the brand also plans to expand a mobile-enabled drive-thru experience to additional suburban locations.
The Avery is a 56-story, 548-unit residential tower with upper floors featuring 118 condominiums and lower floors accommodating 280 luxury apartments and 150 affordable apartments, from Developer Related California.
The ground floor features 17,000 square feet of retail including the incoming Bluestone Lane. It sits two blocks from the new $4.5 billion Transbay Transit Center, San Francisco’s Grand Central Station, and three blocks from the new 61-story Salesforce Tower.
