I read that Whole Foods was going to build in Brooklyn, Has this happened? Will it happen? If so, what is the target opening date?

I passed by the site in the Gowanus earlier this month- it looks like they're still not finished yet. According to Whole Foods, it will be open sometime this fall.

Funny how Brooklyn is considered by some to be Ground Zero for hipsterdom/gentrification but yet lacks a Whole Foods.

If they can afford the rent in Williamsburg, then I would presume so.

Not all, but you know what I mean. There is a good portion of them there. Definitely enough of them for Wholefoods to find some revenue.

I would be shocked if Whole Foods on 3rd Avenue in Brooklyn is completed by the fall. Developers must be cautious of rushing to complete it a year after Superstorm Sandy wrecked Fairway in Red Hook. Structure has to be good to withstand harsh hurricane winds and not compromise proposed urban farm on the roof. Boerum Hill and Park Slope area are not "food deserts" since supermarkets and gourmet grocery stores can be found on nearby Fifth Avenue.

Is it just me or does anyone else find WF to generally be a meat market for the snooty and pretentious crowd? You'll have that guy who apparently couldn't find anything else to wear at 11am in the morning other than his Columbia Med sweatshirt with matching sweatpants and the girl wearing yoga pants with mat in tow.
