A new Starbucks is under construction at Crystals in CityCenter at the site of the former Pods by Wolfgang Puck coffee shop. It's expected to open this summer.

A fourth Starbucks shop is slated for CityCenter — this time at Vdara.

The quick-stop location will take up a small portion of the long-closed Silk Road restaurant, MGM Resorts International officials said.

“The balance of the closed restaurant space is being converted into an innovative meeting and event space that will open later this year,” said Yvette Monet, MGM Resorts International spokeswoman.

MGM expects to open the Starbucks in November.

Plans for the new coffee shop follow on the heels of a recent Starbucks boom at CityCenter.

One of the shops landed at Crystals, replacing the former Pods by Wolfgang Puck coffee shop. There’s also a Starbucks concept store on the second floor of the Aria, near the pool and buffet.

A third location opened on the Strip near Mandarin Hotel, next door to the Pinkberry frozen yogurt shop.
