A new and very large Whole Foods is coming to Manhattan West, Brookfield’s eight-acre mixed-use megadevelopment, the developers announced today.
And according to Brookfield, this is no ordinary grocery store. Rather, the 60,000-square-foot organic oasis at 5 Manhattan West will be a “major culinary anchor, not only for the complex but also for the entire Hudson Yards neighborhood,” Ric Clark, senior managing partner and chairman of Brookfield Property Group and Brookfield Property Partners said in a statement.
Like other Whole Foods stores in the city, it’ll have groceries, dine-in, and take-out options the market will along with “some of the most innovative, chef-inspired culinary and beverage options from countries around the world.” (So, in other words, it will be a Whole Foods.) The chain also has a store in the works in the Financial District, along with an outpost of its “affordable” brand, 365, in Downtown Brooklyn.
The store, located in the 16-story tower at the southeast corner of complex, at 10th Avenue and 31st Street, will be just one of many retail options slated for the Midtown site, which sits across from Related’s Hudson Yards megaproject. The most of the project’s retail line up is TBA, the releases promises “an array of other culinary and retail experiences,” along with offices and luxury apartments.
So far, commercial tenants headed for the complex include the law firm Skadden Arps and the National Hockey League, and leasing at The Eugene—the project’s 62-story residential tower—officially launched last week.
