When news broke late last year that Whole Foods would in fact build a store in Gowanus, the company also said it would renovate the landmark building on the edge of its site on Third and Third.

When we stopped by yesterday no work had started on the building, and things are similarly quiet at the grocery site, which you can see a picture of after the jump.
