One Big Hole For Whole Foods At 250 East 57th Street
It seems like just yesterday that a ground-breaking was being held for the enormous project at 250 East 57th Street. The project is a public/private partnership (with World-Wide Group) which will eventually total a mind blowing 1,000,000 square feet. Phase 1, which will house 2100 students in two brand news schools and a much awaited Whole Foods Market, is well underway. In just a few short months the massive foundation spanning the block between 57th and 56th Streets and hundred of feet wide is nearly finished. Eventually, when complete (estimated 2012), the adjoining high school will be demolished to make way for a 59 story tower that will house 350 residential units as well as an abundance of additional retail/commercial space.
