Whole Foods is Finally Green Lighted!

February 28, 2012

Todd Heisler/The New York Times The site of the proposed Whole Foods supermarket, at Third Street and Third Avenue, Brooklyn, near the Gowanus Canal.

Great news today from Brownstoner that “The Board of Standards and Appeals voted unanimously moments ago to grant Whole Foods Market a variance to build its long-planned supermarket in Gowanus on 3rd Street and 3rd Avenue. The store has been in the works for 8 years, and the variance request represented the company’s last regulatory hurdle to building its first supermarket in Brooklyn.”

I couldn’t be more excited. I lived above the Whole Foods in Chelsea for about 6 years and loved going downstairs in my pjs to get that one tiny item that I craved. Or rolling the cart up to my apartment. Wonder if they will make apartments above this one as well? I might move if they do.
