There's a new Whole Foods headed to Frisco. The grocery store will anchor the retail portion of yet-another-mixed-use-development project that promises upscale retail, fine dining, entertainment, hotels, places to work and places to live. This one is right beside the Tollway and south of Lebanon Road.

The new Whole Foods location will clock in at 45,000 square feet , an average sized store. The Lakewood location is about 50,000 square feet and the Park Lane store provides 80,000 square feet of high cost, high quality food.

The development project that surrounds the coming grocery store, however, sounds absolutely huge. Residents will have more than 1,200 multi-family residential units as well as 127 Charleston-style single-family homes to choose from. And as soon as they take the key they'll have 600,000 square feet of luxury shopping within walking distance to peruse.

And when they're done with that full day of power shopping, Whole Foods will be there to supply prepared kale salads and pre-roasted chickens needed for fuel. The store is expected to open in fall 2015.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
