Whole Foods Brooklyn, Welcome to the Party

Brooklyn and Whole Food take a walk down the (produce) aisle.

After all those meetings and all that drama, the Board of Standards and Appeals unanimously voted YES for Whole Foods Market to build its highly anticipated, eight-years-in-the-works supermarket on the Gowanus Canal. Today's vote was the final bit of red tape before getting the green light. Brownstoner reports that WFBK will be 56,000 square feet, with construction starting soon. Holy guacamole. [Brownstoner]
