Yale St. Industrial Park That Just Lost Its Religion Will Also Fall Victim to Garden Oaks Whole Foods Plans

More details on the planned Yale Marketplace development centered around the 365-branded mini Whole Foods planned for Independence Heights (but picking up the Garden Oaks moniker) come this week from Adolfo Pesquera, who posted the rendering above over at VBX of that companion strip mall planned just to the north of the grocery store. The structure looks to be slated for the narrow parcel of land where the long, low, industrial-slash-office park that until January hosted the Potter’s House Christian Church still stands.

Pesquera also reports that Houston Heights ER has officially signed on as the urgent care clinic that’ll be stuck to the side of the 365 (to the left, in the rendering below):

  • Isn’t the whole 365 concept basically a roundabout admission that whole foods is a rip-off, and basically just a grocery store for anorexic people?

  • 365 is like a Sprouts and though Sprouts is overall a cheaper place to go it’s not as good. After multiple disappointing trips, I’ve left it behind and returned to WholeFoods. But there is clearly a niche for the 365/Sprouts concept. Are there really trees behind the store?

  • Why do you say the project will “fall victim to Garden Oaks Whole Foods plans”? I want this project in my neighborhood so I don’t have to drive past 5 other regular grocery stores just to get organic food.
