The Gowanus Whole Foods site, which has been sinking into toxic muck for the past two years with zero progress toward a future of quinoa and fair-trade organic coffee, may be taking a baby step forward. The Brooklyn Paper reports, "Developers filed state paperwork that raised expectations that the controversial project will actually be built. The upscale grocer submitted an environmental application on Feb. 9 to build a 77,000-square-foot store with a three-level, 414-car garage on the wetlands that make up its three-acre tract near the corner of Third Avenue and Third Street. Sources said construction is not scheduled yet." Like we said, baby step. [BK Paper, previously]
