Wow! Like magic, the frame of the Whole Foods has appeared on the 3rd Street and 3rd Avenue corner lot in Gowanus. Pardon Me For Asking snapped photos of the steel frame, which she believes is mostly complete. It only started going up in the past few weeks. Now we know how close the Whole Foods will be to the historic Coignet Stone building right on the corner. Controversy ensued when the Landmarks Preservation Commission reduced the lot of the building, allowing Whole Foods to build more. (Now there’s a good chance that Whole Foods may end up buying the Coignet building.) Looks like the 56,000-square-foot market, after years and years of holdups, is finally well on its way.
