Renovation work is now underway on a Mid-City property that will be home to a new Whole Foods store.

The 60,000 square foot development is on Broad Street.  It will also include two culinary teaching kitchens.

The site used to be a Schwegmann’s.

The new Whole Foods could supply 100 new jobs and open later this year.

City leaders say the area, especially post-Katrina, suffers from a lack of fresh food access.
