BROOKLYN — Whole Foods is bringing a spin-off store to Fort Greene’s newest rental tower. 

365 by Whole Foods Market is slated to open by early 2018 at 300 Ashland, a new 32-story residential tower located next to Brooklyn Academy of Music, the company said. 

The new grocery store will sell Whole Foods’ line of 365 products, as well as fresh produce, ready-to-eat meals and snacks, meat, cheese, seafood, beer and pantry items.

“365 by Whole Foods Market is a great fit for Downtown Brooklyn — offering an even greater range of accessible food options in an innovative environment for the neighborhood's residents and visitors alike," said Regina Myer, president of Downtown Brooklyn Partnership, in a statement.

The store marks the first 365 outpost on the East Coast. There are currently three others in Los Angeles, Bellevue, Washington, and Lake Oswego, Oregon. 

The Whole Foods will be just one of several new amenities coming to 300 Ashland, including four movie screens at BAM, dance studios, cultural space for the Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts, a new Brooklyn Public Library branch, a 20,000-square-foot public plaza, and a rumored Apple Store

The residential building, which opened last summer, brought 379 new apartments to the neighborhood, 76 of which were rented through an affordable housing lottery.  

The building was designed by Enrique Norten and developed by Two Trees Management
