Whole Foods Comes to Brooklyn

After eight years of wrangling, Whole Foods won approval earlier today to build its first store in Brooklyn.  The location–on a 4.2 acre site at 3rd Street and 3rd Avenue–will situate the store in an industrial area between the neighborhoods of Park Slope and Carroll Gardens.  Whole Foods plans to build a two-story, 52,000-square-foot complex complete with a rooftop greenhouse for selling fresh fruits and vegetables.  An artist’s rendition can be found here.  Only time will tell what effect, if any, this development will have on the surrounding area.
