I heard two of the same rumors one here in town and one a few days ago when I was in Detriot airport coming home that Whole Foods was planning on opening a store in the old Wake Field Krogers. Has anyone heard the same ?

That would seem unlikely to me. Whole Foods just opened on Six Forks/Strickland.

^^ Agreed. Sounds like wishful thinking. I don't see Whole Foods opening up two locations to serve that area on North Raleigh. Would be nice, but I would not hold my breath.

That would be a good spot for Trader Joe's.

After telling my wife about the rumor posted in the OP, she said the same thing.

I can't imagine anything upscale opening in Wakefield. IN MY OPINION (because some folks fail to read that part), Wakefield is quickly going downhill. Wakefield has a lot of closed businesses, a ton of foreclosures, and now the city of Raleigh owns a surprising amount of houses in Wakefield that are being leased to low-income sec. 8 renters. Wakefield has really become a disappointment to me.

How do you know this about the city owned properties being rented out? Where can I find more information on this topic?

Wakefield has closed businesses but new ones are opening too...plus when the road and bridge are done, that should help as well.

And I'm curious how Raleigh is titling those properties, because I didn't find them.

It will definitely speed up the flow on FON but I don't think it'll bring more traffic through there since the car already drive down Wakefield Pines dr.

There was a link to the page on the city's website posted in a thread several months ago on C/D. The link allowed the user to view where every property is located throughout the city. I'll try to find and post it.

Also, on the tax records page, I'm not sure how to find every address the city owns since each search is limited to 200. There are a lot of city properties that I can find doing a single address search but the same address won't show up doing a search for "raleigh city of" even though it's listed the same on the individual address search.
