Developer: No rezoning, no Whole Foods

Landowner says he would build plaza without grocery store

(Continued)

Cohen said he would need a larger plaza to attract more stores in order to make up for the lower rent paid by Whole Foods. A smaller plaza without a Whole Foods would probably include office space on the second and third floors above the retail stores, he said.

DeAngelis said he would be fine with a shopping plaza without a Whole Foods because it would draw less traffic.

“Anything that reduces the traffic in that area makes sense,” DeAngelis said. “I don’t know what could be more of a draw than a shopping center with a Whole Foods.”
