Thomas Hammer Coffee Roasters is planning to open a new location, this time on the South Hill. This will be the locally based coffee chain's first location on the South Hill.
The coffee shop will be located within part of a new 3400 square foot building that will be constructed soon at 3173 S. Grand Blvd. . The new coffee shop will be part of a partnership between Thomas Hammer and Washington Trust Bank. Construction will begin soon on the building, which will be on a vacant lot immediately south of Washington Trust Bank's Manito branch.
The new Thomas Hammer location will share the building with a Washington Trust owned community center which will provide event / meeting space that can be rented for various groups. They also plan to use the space for financial education classes and trainings held by the bank.
The project is estimated to cost $750,000 with Baker Construction & Development acting as the general contractor, architecture work done by Wolfe Architectural Group PS and engineering services done by DCI Engineers .
