Original Update – September 20th, 2010
I grabbed these photos a few weeks ago when I stopped by the construction site of the new Whole Foods being built in North Raleigh. I am impressed with all the progress they have made. I think they are on track for a December or January opening. It will be so nice when this location opens and the residents of N. Raleigh don’t have to trek down to the Wade Avenue location to shop!
The North Raleigh Whole Foods broke gound back in February 2010. The 40,000 square foot Whole Foods store will serve as the anchor for Regency Center’s proposed Market at Colonnade retail center. The market will be located at Six Forks Road and Colonnade Center Drive in North Raleigh, just one mile south of I-540 (near the intersection of Six Forks & Strickland Road). I’ll keep my eye on its progress and will provide additional updates and any news about its “Grand Opening” in the future.
