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?
