Whole Foods coming to Hoboken?
Is uptown Hoboken a good fit for Whole Foods?
Is Hoboken big enough for a Whole Foods?
I really have my doubts about this rumor – because the 1450 Washington project has a total of 23,000 sq. ft. of retail space, which will be divided amongst at least two – and probably more tenants. Whole Foods looks for spaces between 25,000 and 50,000 sq. ft for their stores, and currently doesn’t list Hoboken as a future space for development. So unless they choose to have a “mini” market here, I’d be surprised (and happy) – but it probably won’t fly.
What would be an ideal fit for this building uptown? Considering the existing businesses in the neighborhood, etc. Yet another bar? What is sorely needed at this point in time? And please don’t say Apple Store – why? You can buy everything they sell online!
