Whole Foods Opens Next Week in Chevy Chase



Whole Foods will open its latest area store next Tuesday. The neighborhood-transforming grocer is putting the finishing touches on its Chevy Chase store, located just over the DC border at Wisconsin Place, at 4420 Willard Avenue.

New England Development (NED), Archstone and Boston Properties jointly developed the Wisconsin Place shopping center, which also features a 432-unit apartment building designed by SK&I, 295,000 s.f. of office space, and 305,000 s.f. of Chevy Chase-style retail.

Turner Construction began working on the new Whole Foods back in August of 2004, interior work is being performed by L.F. Jennings. This will be the 296th Whole Foods to open in the U.S., Canada and U.K., according Liz Burkhart of Whole Foods.

Ha ha. Maybe this will cause Chevy Chase to gentrify.

Between what we'll save by not paying for private school tuition or grocery bags I can't afford not to move to Chevy Chase.

Sadly, this does give a lot of people one less reason to cross Western Avenue with their sales tax dollars.

As noted, this is not a neighborhood in need of gentrification, particularly with respect to retail. With two Whole Foods stores nearby in Tenleytown and on River Road, and a Giant supermarket across the street, one may wonder whether this is really the best place for a new grocery store.

Apparently DC, like some neighborhoods in NYC, can support Whole Foods stores relatively close to each other.
