 Page Through from Before to After

Rumors started flying in a few places lately that Whole Foods is coming to New Jersey and K, SE. I usually shy away from writing about rumors, but this one is persistent enough that it probably needs some addressing. It's not listed on their Stores in Development page, and no one's leaping to tell me this is or isn't true (which isn't surprising), but it's not completely out of the realm of possibility. There's been references here or there to "two grocery stores" coming to the neighborhood (with space for one set aside at the The Yards, coming in 2011 or later), and I've heard nonspecific Whole Foods/Near Southeast rumors a few times over the past year.
But I'm skeptical about it coming to the New Jersey/K intersection. There's only 6,000 square feet of retail in 909 New Jersey (not enough for a grocery store), and the plan for the trash transfer station has always been for it to be part of the Capper Hope VI project, with an apartment building that probably won't start before 2011. That leaves the southwest corner, where the Cohen family owns the small lots along K between New Jersey and First; there's also the Positive Nature lot at 1021 New Jersey and one to its south owned by Potomac Development Corp., who it should be noted picked up 51,000 square feet of transferred development rights earlier this year. (Can someone at CHT look out their window and confirm that the Positive Nature sign is still there?)
So maybe the "New Jersey" part is right, but not the "K"? My gaze (and my betting dollars) might head north a block or two, to 800 New Jersey (also sometimes known as 120 Canal), where for years William C. Smith has envisioned a grocery store as part of its planned 1.1-million-square-foot four-building development on the Square 737 block bounded by Second, H, New Jersey, and the eventually reconstituted I Street. No timeline for the start of this project has been announced, though. (In fact, there's so little information about the project that I haven't even felt compelled to build a project page for it.)
In other words, there aren't really any tea leaves to be read on this one, so if someone wants to spill the beans, I'm always listening.

Whole Foods coming to SE?!?! That may be bigger news than the new ballpark was. I say that half in jest, but truly, that would be wonderful!

JD - Is your site traffic suffering that much now that the stadium is completed that you have to make up new fantastic developments? ;)

Sign is gone from Positive Nature.

Yes, read my other entry on that:

But I really don't think there's going to be a grocery store at New Jersey and *K*.

I consulted with the Whole Foods in my area. I put a lot of pennies down and then donated some quarters to the work of the Holy Spirit.

I tried to share how to make a security perimeter arouind the dimesion of food and food services and then how to divide the elements up for balance.

The store does not appear to have sources that I am familiar with. I was hoping for the same things I had on the way in... maybe they hid them in plain packaging. I asked for the stuff from purity supriem and heartland and finast. I am not sure what Whole foods has from what I requrie in love.

There is a blue and white sign that says something like
:Code:Adam" or somethings

I try to figure out on the 8th year of a spiritual discipline in love how to find the same in same out theory.

I looked for a visiting resturaunt area with jack - n - the Box and McDonalds and the stuff we were raised on Whoppers from burger king and stuff...

Never to get all sadity about what really went into our makeup... lot's of hot dogs and hamburgers and junk food.

I try to maintain...

Love DAW
