Leading organic and natural grocer, Whole Foods Market, has announced plans to open up its first location in North Vancouver. The 40,000 square foot grocery store will anchor The Onni Group’s development, CentreView, at the corner of Lonsdale and 13th. Doors to the new store are expected to open in early 2018.
The development will be the new landmark retail destination in Central Lonsdale. Onni’s CentreView will be a mixed-use community that will offer more than 90,000 square feet of prime retail space with extensive underground parking, more than 80,000 square feet of office space and, a childcare facility. There will be approximately 340 homes in 2 towers that will be among the tallest in North Vancouver, offering spectacular views.
The North Vancouver location will be the fifth Whole Foods Market in Metro Vancouver.
“We are deeply committed to creating a store that serves the unique needs of this community, and will reach out to ask for direct feedback about what our new neighbours would like to see in the store,” said Joe Rogoff, President, Whole Foods Market in the Pacific Northwest Regional. “We’re looking forward to becoming a part of the vibrant North Vancouver community.”
In addition to Whole Foods Market, CentreView is expected to feature a national pharmacy, coffee shop, restaurant, and professional services. The condo towers will include a 10,000 square foot wellness centre for owners, with an outdoor pool. High-end interior finishings in the homes are unlike anything currently available in the North Vancouver condo market.
The CentreView presentation centre is expected to open soon on Lonsdale. Condo prices will start in the low $300,000s.
