A $225,000 remodel of the former Albertson’s gas station on Northwest Boulevard will house a drive-thru coffee shop.

Wake Up Coffee, a chain that began in Spokane Valley, will open its eighth location in the abandoned convenience store, which will have two drive-thru windows and a lobby for walk-in service and seating.

The 1,200-square-foot building won’t have the same look as the coffee purveyor’s other locations, notable for their telephone booth-inspired entrances.

“It’s really quite different,” said Matt Sprott, an architect with Studio Called Make, which designed the renovation and is changing its name to TREK Architecture. “It’s a sleek, more modern look.”

Sprott said the new location is expected to be open by the end of the year.

DCI Enginners, of Seattle, did the structural engineering.
