South End Answers: When Will the Whole Foods Open?

A rendering of the new Ink Block project.

In this week’s column of “You Ask, Patch Answers,” a new feature where we find the answers to your questions, reader J. Nicole asked via Twitter, “When are we getting a Whole Foods and a Pinkberry? Life’s essential elements.”

While I haven’t heard anything about a Pinkberry, there is, in fact, a Whole Foods coming to the South End. I reached out to the team over at the Ink Block development project to find out the most recent project update. 

“The Whole Foods at Ink Block will be completed in late 2014 and will be the chain’s largest in Boston with 50,000-square-feet of retail space,” said spokesperson Amey Owen. “To keep up with life South End style, Ink Block’s WholeFoods will include outdoor sidewalk café seating on Harrison Avenue, prepared foods and a selection of natural and organic goods.”

So there you have it! I hope that answered your question.
