THE latest branch of American coffee shop chain Starbucks has opened in Portsmouth.

It is now serving coffee to nearly 5,000 people at the Lakeside Business Park and has pride of place within the park’s new Central Square retail hub.

With the letting, six out of the seven units in the hub are now occupied.

Tim Clark, the retail specialist with Hughes Ellard, which brokered the deal, said: ‘Commercial interest in Central Square’s units has been phenomenal and we expect to be able to call ‘full house” within months of this retail hub being completed.’

The Lakeside Business Park is undergoing a massive expansion.
