As first reported by The Community Paper, a planned Starbucks in College Park has hit a snag.

We first told you about a new drive-thru Starbucks back in June 2021 that was in the works to replace the K Restaurant building at 1710 Edgewater Drive [GMap]. Those plans are hitting a road bump in the shape of Dieldrin, an insecticide that was found in the soil of the property that was likely left behind by a pest control company that used to operate there before it became a restaurant.

The developers are hoping to have the site labeled as a brownfield so they can seek financial aid to have it remediated, and the toxins treated.

An updated project timeline is not public at this time.
