Starbucks has filed a development plan to build its first standalone store in Henderson County.


A Waynesville developer filed the plans for a new store for the Seattle-based coffee roaster whose stock surged last week to a 52-week high of $92 a share. The developer, Greg Edney of New Mountain LLC, filed plans for the store on two lots on Mitchelle Drive.
The plans show the store on a .45-acre parcel owned by Boyd L. "Bub" Hyder, which contains the old Hendersonville Printing Co. operation, and a .21-acre parcel owned by his aunt, Lucille Hyder Terry.
In an interview on Monday, Edney said nothing had been finalized on the project. Hyder also said papers had not been signed. If the deal goes through, the Waynesville developer will buy the land and construct the store for the coffee seller, he said.
The Hyder parcel is valued at $385,900 while the Lucille Terry property is valued at $124,000. The property at the corner of Four Seasons Bouelvard and Orrs Camp Road contains the rock house that's home to Jimmy Edney's Land of Sky Realty, built in 1920. The property, however, is not considered historic and would not stop development of the property, city Zoning Administrator Susan Frady said.
The development requires a staff review for traffic, landscaping and utilities but does not require Planning Board or City Council vote, Frady said.

Edney said on Monday he could not comment on the development because he was not authorized to speak for Starbucks.
The best known retail coffee retailer in the world, Starbucks operates stores in 65 countries. Sales in the fourth quarter of 2014 rose 13 percent, to $4.8 billion, while earnings rose to $983.1 million, from $540.7 million in the same quarter a year earlier, thanks to the company's full purchase of its unit in Japan, the New York Times reported.
