update from http://www.metrowiremedia.com/

The new 45,000-square foot Whole Foods Market near the UMKC campus is on schedule for completion by the end of October, according to general contractor Luke Draily Construction.

Designed by Atlanta-based Greenberg Farrow, the urban style market is part of a three-acre project south of East 51st Street between Brookside Boulevard and Oak Street.

The market will be topped by five stories of luxury apartments, a six-story parking garage, and a UMKC Counseling, Health and Testing Center.

Surprising but welcome news. Any idea when the store will open?

FWIW, an employee at the 91st & Metcalf location said that they're scheduled to move in April.

I was so excited about this project when it first came out but I've been so unimpressed with Whole Foods over the last few years I wish it was something else now. I've been a huge fan of Sprouts over the last couple months, would love to see Sprouts come into the Midtown area, its slowly becoming our go to grocery store but have to trek all the way to the one by the airport .

Agreed. I'm not sure why there isn't a Sprouts somewhere in DT-Plaza area.

The old Apple Market space in the Uptown Shoppes would be a perfect spot for a Sprouts...

Hy-Vee is one big missing name in the urban core and they're doing smaller stores too. I could see them fit into midtown well.

One thing they do very well is hiring. They have tons of staff compared to many grocery stores.
