Whole Foods Market is moving forward with its Midtown flagship.
An estimated $6,575,000 will be spent building out the grocery store’s interior, according to permits filed last week with the City of Atlanta.
The forthcoming Whole Foods Market is expected to anchor the recently completed Icon building at the corner of 14th and Spring streets.
Though the exterior shell of the new grocery store is complete, progress has not been made on the interior for weeks.
The store was originally slated to open at the beginning of 2018. Company officials did not immediately comment on the delays.
Plans for the Whole Foods reveal an ambitious project that will include a cooking school, brewpub and restaurant space.
The 72,000-square-foot property includes three levels and is expected to offer a rooftop terrace area with skyline views.
Changes at Whole Foods Market have been common and sometimes controversial since Amazon purchased the grocery chain just over one year ago, but there have been no reports of delayed store openings due to the acquisition.
However, once the new Whole Foods location opens, Amazon Prime members will be eligible for a 10 percent discount there. Amazon announced today that it will expand its Prime discount to 10 more states, including Georgia.
