Whole Foods Opening on Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg
WILLIAMSBURG — Move over, organic corner delis — Whole Foods is reportedly coming to the 'Burg.
The trendy supermarket, which touts its selection of natural and organic products, will be moving into about 39,000 square feet at 242 Bedford Ave., at North Fourth Street, sources told the New York Post.
Last month the city's Board of Standards and Appeals granted a zoning variance to allow Whole Foods to build a 52,000 square foot supermarket in Gowanus, Brooklyn.
The Williamsburg site is near a handful of other small grocers and sits three blocks from the busy Bedford Avenue L train station.
Whole Foods will be part of the property's $40 million development that will include a New York Sports Club and luxury rental apartments, the Post reported.
Sources told the paper that the bulk of the grocer would sit underground, with a 9,000-square-foot entrance on the ground floor.
The popular store currently has locations on the Lower East Side, Chelsea, Columbus Circle, TriBeCa, Union Square, the Upper West Side and Midtown East.
