MANHATTAN — A Whole Foods Market is heading to a new development rising in the Hudson Yards.

The supermarket chain signed a lease for a 60,000-square-foot space inside 5 Manhattan West, at West 31st Street and 10th Avenue, developer Brookfield Property Partners said in a release.

The 16-story tower, which is part of Brookfield’s 8-acre Manhattan West development, will have a total of 100,000 square feet of retail space.

The new store will “serve as the major culinary anchor not only for the complex, but also for the entire Hudson Yards neighborhood,” Brookfield’s senior managing partner and chairman Ric Clark said in a statement.

The building will share a public plaza with a recently opened, 62-story luxury high-rise called The Eugene.

“The Whole Foods Market will provide a unique opportunity to dine-in, take-out or shop from some of the most innovative, chef-inspired culinary and beverage options from countries around the world,” the release said.

A spokeswoman for Brookfield did not immediately provide an estimated opening date for the grocery store.
