Whole Foods will be opening its first Jersey City location as part of Mack-Cali’s Harborside development, Jersey Digs first reported. The 47,000 square-foot market will be housed within an existing office building at 286 Washington Street that will be retrofitted to accommodate the popular grocer. Construction hasn’t started yet and an opening date has yet to be confirmed but it will likely be at some point in 2020.
According to Jersey Digs, Whole Foods will combine 25,000 square feet of recently vacated retail space on the first floor of the building and part of the adjacent parking deck on the property. That means some parking spots will be sacrificed during construction, but the garage will still be able to accommodate 1,000 vehicles. Additionally, to make room for a new loading dock for the market, Pearl Street between Greene and Washington Streets will be converted into a one-way roadway.
The most recent rendering of the project, pictured above, gives a glimpse of the signage that will go up on the building. Plans for the retrofit were submitted by HLW International and local engineering firm Dresdner Robin in October.
Across the street from the forthcoming Whole Foods, Mack-Cali has a multi-use development known as The Charlotte currently under construction. Slated to open in 2022, the project will comprise of 750 apartments, retail, parking, a public park, and a two-story public school offering kindergarten and pre-k classes.
Following the successful opening of Harborside’s food hall, District Kitchen, at 210 Hudson Street in March, the eclectic food hall has plans to expand with additional vendors in 2020.
