An important update for all you contestants in the 1st Annual Lower East Side Whole Foods Betting Pool. According to a tipster, some work on the Avalon Chrystie Place outpost of the gourmet grocer has?gulp?begun. Hide the children:
Construction has started inside of the concrete. Doors open yesterday and notified by Avalon Chrystie management that construction has commenced. My guess looking inside that this won't be done till next fall. Think the hold up was on final design as they were trying to get a liquor license and that failed. We'll overlook the absence of pictures to speculate on whether Whole Foods is determined to steal some of Trader Joe's thunder, hence the "doors open" approach. Developing!
