Sacramento Gayborhood to Get a Whole Foods

Whole Foods Sacramento - Apple MapsLavender Heights, the Sacramento gayborhood, is set to get its own Whole Foods market.

The Sacramento Bee reports:

After years of rumors that Whole Foods Market might come to midtown Sacramento, the Texas-based grocery chain said Wednesday it had signed a lease for a new location at 20th and L streets. “We are excited to expand our reach into Sacramento’s eclectic and dynamic midtown neighborhood,” Rob Twyman, Whole Foods president for Northern California, said in a news release.

Pappas Investments said Whole Foods will occupy the entire 40,000-square-foot ground floor of a mixed-use structure that the Sacramento-based developer plans to build across from its offices on L Street. The project will include 140 apartments and two stories of parking above the market, and one story of parking below it, Pappas said. Pappas will tear down the existing low-rise parking garage it owns on the block to make way for the mixed-use building and plans to develop additional parking at 21st Street and Capitol Avenue. The project is still in its early planning stages and must win city approval, the firm said.
