Nothing is official until the doors actually open – this I think I am finally learning. Back in May we finally thought the Whole Foods coming to Shaw was officially official. Alas – the Washington Business Journal now reports:

“The North Shaw neighborhood could lose its Whole Foods Market before it even gets it if the D.C. Council doesn’t act to approve the development.

The sale price could be why Council Chairman Phil Mendelson hasn’t brought the issue up for a vote. During a hearing in early June, Mendelson and Councilwoman Mary Cheh expressed concerns with the proposed sale price of $1.4 million, citing a D.C. government appraisal of the property at $27 million.”
