Weehawken Mayor Richard Turner and Hartz Mountain Industries principals recently held a ceremony commemorating the official start of construction on a 32,949-square-foot Whole Foods store on the Weehawken waterfront.
The store, named “Whole Foods Market 365,” will focus on selling natural and organic products and will be located within the Lincoln Harbor mixed-use development.
“This is an important piece of the overall puzzle as we continue to create what we believe is the region’s premier live, work, shop, dine and play destination,” Gus Milano, CEO and president of Hartz Mountain, said. “Public amenities and services are an important part of that formula, and adding a Whole Foods Market 365 store to the mix will go a long way to serving not only the residents of our adjacent luxury Estuary residential building, but all future residential projects, commercial employees and the greater Weehawken and New Jersey Gold Coast communities as well.”
Turner said the new store will be a great addition to the township and its residents.
The new Whole Foods Market, according to Hartz Mountain, will be located just off River Road, and will be adjacent to the Lincoln Harbor’s NY Waterway ferry stop and a light rail station.
“Whole Foods Market is proud of our long history in the New York City area and we are proud to bring our 365 store to Hudson County,” Christina Minardi, president of Whole Foods Market’s Northeast Region, said. “Our 365 stores deliver the same quality that our customers have come to expect, but in a convenient and fun new format that provides exceptional value.”
Hartz Mountain’s Lincoln Harbor is a 60-acre, 2.5 million-square-foot development in Weehawken, opposite Midtown Manhattan and adjacent to the Lincoln Tunnel entrance.
