Way back in early June Community Board 6 supported Whole Foods’ plans to build bigger than zoning allows on 3rd Street and 3rd Avenue, and, as Pardon Me for Asking reported, the grocer will have its day before the powers that be at the Board of Standards and Appeals on Tuesday, December 13th. The BSA hearing will consider Whole Foods’ variance request for a 56,000-square-foot store in a spot where the company would typically only be allowed to build a 10,000-square-foot structure. It wouldn’t be unheard of for the BSA to continue this hearing over several sessions, so—assuming the variance is eventually granted—who knows when construction will actually begin.
