The long-awaited Whole Foods at 3rd Avenue and 3rd Street in Gowanus will open one year from now, in the fall of 2013, according to a memo sent by Whole Foods to Community Board Six. Construction on the foundation is slated to begin any day, now that the environmental cleanup is done and certified and the site is being prepared. The steel frame will start going up early next year. Meanwhile, as part of the development agreement, Whole Foods will repair the adjacent and landmarked Long Island Coignet Stone Company Building (pictured above). The grocer’s architects are working on drawings for the renovation of the facade, which will need to be approved by Landmarks. (The building is not owned by Whole Foods and will not be used by the market.) The grocery plans to include lots of Brooklyn foods from purveyors such as Brooklyn Brine, Mast Brothers Chocolate, Brooklyn Salsa, Acme Smoked Fish and People’s Pops. Hiring will start in the summer.
