PT’s Coffee is opening a second downtown outlet on the street level of the Power & Light Apartments next month, the first commercial tenant in the development’s retail space along Baltimore Avenue.

The Topeka-based coffee house enterprise opened its first downtown outlet several years ago when it moved into the former Coffee Girl space at 310 Southwest Blvd.

Owner Fred Polzin said the new PT’s space at 1310 Baltimore should find a receptive market. It’s expected to open by mid-June.

“Downtown is becoming very vibrant and there’s a lot going on with new hotels and apartment buildings,” he said. “We thought the south side of downtown was little underserved.”

The historic Power & Light building was renovated and reopened as a luxury apartment development in July 2016.

The project included the renovation of the old Art Deco tower into 210 units and a new addition to the north along Baltimore with 81 units.

“We’re excited,” Polzin said. “That building is amazing.”

He said his new space is 1,200 square feet and should seat about 35 people. It will feature coffee drinks, Nitro coffee, cold brews, pastries, breakfast burritos, sandwiches and salads.

The hours are expected to be 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays, and 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.
