St. Paul Whole Foods to relocate to Snelling and Selby


A proposed mixed-use development by Ryan Companies at the northeast corner of Snelling and Selby avenues, which includes 210 apartments, will likely be the new home of Whole Foods in St. Paul.

The Pioneer Press reports the current store at 30 S. Fairview is relocating to the larger space, about 38,000 square feet, and will employ more workers. The Fairview location, which opened in 1995, would remain open until the new site is finished in 2016.

The Star Tribune reported Texas-based Whole Foods, the nation's largest natural and organic supermarket chain, is in the midst of a building boom in the Twin Cities. A new store recently opened in Maple Grove and another location in downtown Minneapolis, also a Ryan Cos. project, is expected to open in early fall.

In addition to the apartment project anchored by the grocery store, the development will also include a new branch of the existing Associated Bank. Ryan Cos. has also proposed about 270 parking spaces for residents at the complex and roughly 170 spots for grocery store customers.
