The former home of Giant will soon welcome another grocer.
Permit documents suggest Whole Foods Market plans to open at 6426 Springfield Plaza, a county spokesperson told FFXnow in a statement, supporting rumors circulating among local residents and employees in the shopping center.
Extensive construction on the site — which was home to Giant before it was renovated and moved to a larger space in the plaza — is currently underway.
But it’s still unclear what’s in store for the Whole Foods Market in Old Keene Mill Shopping Center in Springfield.
Whole Foods declined multiple requests for comment from FFXnow on its plans for Springfield, including whether or not the current location plans to relocate.
A company spokesperson simply noted that a location in Springfield is “in development.”
Based on plaza leasing materials, the new location has a significantly larger footprint.
Representatives for Rappaport, a commercial real estate management company of the plaza, repeatedly declined comment.
Lee District Supervisor Rodney Lusk’s office, which represents the area, told FFXnow that it had not been “directly informed by the Springfield Plaza owners or managers as to what the new tenant located at 6426 Springfield Plaza will be.”
However, the office says it obtained publicly available documents related to a permit for renovations on the site. The permit is listed in the county’s FIDO database for a “future tenant.”
“Upon a request to Land Development Services (LDS) from the Supervisor’s office, we were able to discern from the application documents of permit # 220400083 that the name ‘Whole Foods’ would be the name placed upon the new frontage of the building,” Lusk’s office said by email.
