The New Rochelle Chamber of Commerce hosted a Ribbon Cutting for Joe Coffee - the popular New York City-based collection of award-winning cafés, located in the lobby of the new 28-story residential tower at 10 Lecount Place -Stella - on Tuesday September 13th to celebrate their Grand Opening.
Joe Coffee operates 24 cafes in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens, and is proud to join the Westchester County community with this first location in New Rochelle. "After many years of looking to expand to the Westchester area, we're thrilled to have found the perfect home in New Rochelle. We're so grateful for our stunning surroundings at Stella and the warm welcome we've received from our neighbors and the community," said Jonathan Rubinstein, founder and CEO of Joe Coffee.
For Joe Coffee, the new Stella building, created by LMXD and Wilder Balter Partners, Inc., provides the perfect mix of spectacular architecture, the Joe Coffee aesthetic, and ideal location—central to downtown New Rochelle, just off Main Street, and a five-minute walk from the Metro North.
Developers Wilder Balter Partners and LMXD stated, “Wilder Balter Partners and LMXD value the partnership with Joe Coffee, a purveyor of excellent specialty coffee and delicious baked goods. We’re thrilled to make it possible for Joe Coffee to serve residents of Stella, New Rochelle and Westchester broadly, in a beautiful café space. Their presence adds to the already diverse food offerings in Downtown New Rochelle and we hope everyone comes to visit!”
The Joe Coffee menu features classic café offerings like their signature house coffee, The Daily, on drip, with its signature espresso, The Waverly, serving as the base for espresso drinks. Iced coffee, cold brew, specialty seasonal drinks, and light fare (pastries, sandwiches, salads) make for the perfect reason to pull up a chair and enjoy the luxurious surroundings of the Stella café.
Mayor Bramson stated, "We are delighted to welcome Joe Coffee to the Stella, and to bring the best of New York City here to New Rochelle. Joe Coffee's arrival is one more illustration of a downtown that is growing in energy and vitality by the day, as we implement New Rochelle's visionary and successful economic development plan."
“The new Joe Coffee at Stella is terrific. It’s great to have New Rochelle recognized by such an amazing and expanding brand as Joe Coffee,” said NR President and owner of the Beechmont Tavern Rob Hayes. “New Rochelle, with all its remarkable features including our easy proximity to NYC, is ripe for retail expansion and we’re glad that Joe Coffee is a part of it. Welcome!”
"We are super excited to have our region's famous Joe Coffee join us in New Rochelle Downtown at the beautiful Stella Building and to greet our commuters in the Train Station. We love coffee and welcome this great brand to our fun, walkable, transforming environment here," said Karel Littman, Executive Director, New Rochelle Downtown Business Improvement District (NRBID).
