Perhaps you drive along Landmark Drive, between Walmart and Tanger Outlet and have wondered, “what’s that parking lot on the north side of the street?” Wonder no more. If the developers of the land have their way, you’ll be looking at a new 45,000 square foot Whole Foods Grocery Store, in addition to a couple of buildings housing retail and restaurants.
There is currently a Whole Foods in Redstone, which is about half the size the proposed new grocery. If this moves forward, it is likely that building will join the ranks of the other
completely half-empty buildings in Redstone.
Right now the Snyderville Basin Planning Commission is introductory talks with the developer about the proposal. The developer never formally named Whole Foods as a tenant but documents filed with the Summit County Planning Department indicate the building will house a Whole Foods. Previously the developer had the rights to build more buildings on the site, each with a smaller footprint than the new proposal. They want to amend that proposal and add 7,000 more square feet but with fewer buildings. It appears the developer wanted to see what potential issues there could be with the change.
So, we are at the beginning of the process but it could have big implications for the area. We’ll let you know as we hear more.
