Gowanus Whole Foods Update: "Glassy," Plus Parking

If it's Friday, it must be time for more information on the Gowanus Whole Foods. The new Brooklyn Papers fills in some interesting detail on what will rise on the environmentally-challenged property at Third Avenue and Third Street in Gowanus. The 68,000 square foot complex is decribed as "glassy" and will now include a three-story parking garage, plus rooftop parking, plus surface parking. Whole Foods is expecting up to 1,800 cars an hour at busy times, all of which adds up to selling a crapload of cherry almond streusel muffins and fromage blanc. Oh, the grocer is shooting for a Spring, '08 opening.
