Out with the old, in with the new.
The Kragen Autoparts store—which had once been a grocery store—has been demolished, clearing a way for a new development that includes 173 apartments with amenities including a fitness center and several private outdoor landscaped barbecue areas.
But that’s not all.
It will also have retail space for a grocery store. To be exact, a Whole Foods Market.
Several weeks ago The Ingleside Light broke the story about Whole Foods signing a long term lease.
Here’s further details from the developer.
“We are very excited about the project,” said Meg Spriggs, senior development director for Avalon Bay Communities. “Our plans include a Whole Foods Market who will occupy approximately 26,000 square feet at the ground floor level and a landscaped plaza adjacent to Whole Foods on the new Brighton Ave extension.”
“The project will also be built to green standards, seeking LEED certification,” Spriggs wrote via e-mail.
