It may though help to spur additional residential development in the area, as the one on P-Street did. That set off a residential development frenzy in the Logan Circle neighborhood.
It's the same exact distance from the interstate as the Publix on Spring Street, and that store, dinky by comparison, already helped catalyze a massive boom in the central part of Midtown. The blocks around that store are some of the densest in the entire city.

There are already numerous huge residential towers within a short walk of this Whole Foods (~3 blocks), and many more blocks that could be redeveloped (essentially everything west of Spring, and everything south of 12th). In ten years, the northwest part of midtown could be the densest part of the metro area.

I don't think anyone suggested that this Whole Foods store was transformative. This is rather another mark in the transformation of midtown as more urban place. There are now more options for doing basic things without a car.

Now wouldn’t that have been something? Spring street and WP could have nearly a protected bike lane from 14th st down to 3rd if each development did this. Portman’s projects alone would have built out two parallel blocks of protected cycle tracks.
