Starbucks Density

The folks in Chicago have come up with a new metric for urban density and business growth. Here at my office at 12th and F above Metro Center, we’re at 61 SBD, and my condo over in Fairlington is at 32 SBD. Converting the metric into Starbucks per Square Mile (S/mi^2), that’s a 0.77 S/mi^2 for downtown and 0.40 S/mi^2 for Fairlington.

I actually expected a lot higher cluster of Starbucks downtown, but apparently they’re all over by Georgetown. What’s your Starbucks Density?

    Home for me – Arlington Courthouse – is 72. Work – midway between Faragut and Dupont – is 64. Strange, I assumed that work would be higher but I guess within 5 miles of my office are large swaths of land with public buildings and museums. If I drop it down to 2 miles, work is 38 and home is only 11. I live close enough to work that #20 on the home 5 mile list is #1 on the work list.

    Falls Church is 29 SBD. And FC is only two square miles.

    I live at Virginia Square and have a Starbucks directly across the street from my front door. Home is 70 SBD and work is 64. I also thought that work would be higher than home, but I do pass 7 during my commute.
