Whole Foods has set a target date of Wednesday, Nov. 7 for its grand opening at Chappaqua Crossing, according to New Castle Supervisor Robert Greenstein.
Greenstein called it good news for the mixed use development at the former Reader's Digest headquarters since other potential tenants will likely begin signing leases, including a coffee shop, pet store and bank.
"It's nice to know that Whole Foods is starting work and has a firm opening date," Greenstein told DailyVoice.
Lifetime Fitness also plans to open a new Westchester center at Chappaqua Crossing and there will be an urgent care facility.
"I think they're hoping the leasing will pickup now,'' Greenstein said.
Greenstein said Whole Food officials inspected the building last Tuesday and decided to begin renovation work inside the structure and set an opening date.
"They're essentially accepting the building,'' he said.
