A new 45,000-sq.-ft. Whole Foods Market will move into a portion of the
soon-to-be-closing recently closed Randalls grocery store in the Westchase Shopping Center, landlord Weingarten Realty announced today. The 25,663-sq.-ft. Whole Foods Market that’s been operating in the same REIT’s Market at Westchase since 1991 — just across Wilcrest at 11145 Westheimer — will shutter when the new Whole Foods opens — in 2016.
A site plan already posted on the landlord’s website (above) shows Whole Foods taking up only a portion of the 74,000-sq.-ft. former Randalls space — an additional 29,056 sq. ft. of it (shown in yellow) is marked as still available. Randalls announced the closure of its store at 11041 Westheimer Rd. last December, confirming earlier reports. Randalls’ lease for the property is up at the end of this month, Nancy Sarnoff reports.
