A building permit in this week’s Wichita Business Journal indicates the approximate value of interior finishes planned for Whole Foods Market Inc.’s new grocery store, which is targeted to open Sept. 10.
Engineered Structures Inc.’s permit for tenant finishes for the northeast Wichita store has a value of about $3.8 million.
The permit follows one issued in September to Law Co. Inc., valued at $3.5 million, to build the shell of the grocery and adjoining stores to the north.
Whole Foods’ store, to be called Bread & Circus, is the anchor tenant at Waterfront Plaza at the northwest corner of 13th and Webb.
“You’re starting to see what kind of quality the center’s going to be,” says Stephen Clark II, vice president of Clark Investment Group, which is a partner in The Waterfront with Johnny Stevens.
“It worked out better than we imagined,” he says.
Architectural firm Law Kingdon designed Waterfront Plaza.
Don Piros of Landmark Commercial Real Estate is marketing the retail space being built alongside the grocery.
