I am keeping this one short since I am sick to death of the story, but ~IKE’S PLACE~ got approval to build out and open in the former Joseph Schmidt space. And that’s all I’m writing about it until it opens, which should be sometime before February 1st. 3489 16th St. at Sanchez.

And ~WHOLE FOODS MARKET~ got approval to open in the triangular block on the southwest corner at Dolores, Market, and 14th Streets (the exact address is 2001 Market Street). The existing building (a Ford dealership) is going to be demolished, and will be replaced by a mixed-use residential-commercial building with 82 dwelling units (there will also be 101 off-street parking spaces located in two parking garages), with Whole Foods on the ground floor, along with outdoor seating. You can check out a rendering on Curbed here.
