HV council approves site plan for Whole Foods
From staff reports
At Tuesday's meeting, the Highland Village City Council unanimously approved the site plan amendment for the Shops at Highland Village to allow the construction of Whole Foods.
The new Whole Foods building will have a footprint of 38,251 square feet in addition to a second floor mezzanine of 6,000 square feet that will accommodate a seating area for dining and a potential wine and cheese bar.
The 44,251-square-foot building will be constructed on the southeast corner of the Shops at Highland Village. The exterior of the store will enhance the existing Shops at Highland Village by complementing the existing buildings with stone, a wood terrace and live screening as green walls on the exterior of the building.
Mayor Pat Davis stated, “The approval of Whole Foods as a new retailer and corporate resident in Highland Village has fulfilled a vision and goal for our economic development in Highland Village.”
To accommodate for the building, one existing building at the center will be removed, with the tenant, Coldwater Creek and Coldwater Creek Spa involved in negotiations with the owners for relocation within the facility.
Demolition and construction is planned to begin in May with Whole Foods opening sometime in 2014.
During the meeting councilmember Fred Busche stated, “Whole Food’s will bring a new shopping experience to Highland Village that will provide the finest natural and organic foods available, they maintain the strictest and highest quality standards of any grocery store, and they have an unshakeable commitment to sustainable agriculture, which meets the desires of the resident of Highland Village”.
