Whole Foods Market will relocate its existing store on Chagrin Boulevard in Woodmere to the Pinecrest development in Orange.
The new 45,000-square-foot store will be part of the $230 million Pinecrest development.
“Whole Foods Market will be an extraordinary addition and a natural fit for Pinecrest,” said Randy Ruttenberg, principal at Fairmount Properties. “This exciting announcement will further Pinecrest’s unmatched experience given the number of best-in-class retail.”
Scott Allshouse, Whole Foods Market Mid-Atlantic regional president, said, “We are proud of our history serving the Cleveland community. So in an effort to continue to evolve and improve our commitment, we’re investing in this neighborhood, our customers and team members. This new site will help us continue to strive for the best experience possible with every trip to a Whole Foods Market.”
Site work is underway at Pinecrest. Once finished, the 58-acre mixed-used development will offer 400,000 square feet of retail space featuring an eclectic blend of national, regional and local stores, chef-driven restaurants and entertainment venues.
It will also include a mix of 150,000 square feet of class-A office space, a 150-room boutique hotel and 90 new apartments.
Fairmount Properties is serving as the lead developer for the project.
