When last we checked on the development coming to the superblock between 97th and 100th on Columbus, a Curbed commenter had this to say: "While I do want more commercial space on Columbus, I don't want it to end up being a bank, a whole foods market and a CVS. I'm tired of seeing the neighborhood get taken over by big businesses and yuppies who don't give back to the community."
And yet, it was destiny. Crain's reports (via an article on uptown blog Urban Flavor) that Whole Foods is considering taking a lease at the site. Because something about these Whole Foods rumors always seems to play out, we're calling this one a done deal. Damn yuppies.
