Whole Foods Market is moving forward with a new NoHo Arts District location.
Plans Friday were finalized by the City of Los Angeles for construction to begin on the grocery store in the fresh-on-the-scene L + O NoHo Apartments, at 5115 Lankershim Blvd.
An estimated $2,000,000 could be spent building out the new Whole Foods Market, including metal stud framing and interior finishes, among other things.
Whole Foods was originally going to open 365 on the ground floor of the apartment mid-rise but the company nixed the brand, touted as a “cheaper” alternative to its parent company, earlier this year.
Developer Hayes Capital Management confirmed the switcheroo in a telephone conversation with What Now Los Angeles (WNLA) Monday.
The firm’s architect of record for L + O, DE Architects, would not provide updated project renderings at WNLA’s request, however.
Whole Foods Market opening in the development instead of 365 isn’t the only change for the project.
L + O, when first announced in 2018, went by the name Lankershim + Otsego.
A timeline for the opening of the new Whole Foods Market has not yet been revealed.
