So far, asparagus-water pioneer Whole Foods has opened locations of its budget-minded, “hip,” and “tech-oriented” spin off, 365, on the West Coast. The first landed in Silver Lake, Los Angeles, followed by locations in Bellevue, Washington and Lake Oswego, Oregon. Two and a half years after revealing designs for the chain, the grocer has announced plans to bring the brand to the East Coast. It will open its first New York location in Fort Greene, Brooklyn in early 2018 at the 300 Ashland Place development, a 35-story tower that will also be home to, eventually, an Apple store. At 43,000 square feet, it will be significantly larger than previously opened 365 locations.
