Whole Foods Market to Anchor Retail at The Parks at Walter Reed

Leading natural and organic grocer will anchor retail at the Parks at Walter Reed, a development from Hines, Urban Atlantic, and Triden Development Group

(WASHINGTON, D.C.) — Whole Foods Market has signed a 40,000-square-foot lease to anchor the Hartley at the Parks at Walter Reed, a 3.1 million-square-foot master-planned community from Hines, Urban Atlantic, and Triden Development Group. The leading natural and organic grocer is among the latest signature additions to the dynamic transformation of the former Walter Reed medical campus, the largest site under development in Northwest Washington, D.C.

Construction on The Hartley is expected to begin in early 2020 with completion of the project in early 2022.

The Hartley will be the third new construction phase to commence on site, with The Brooks - 89 elegantly appointed condominium residences (www.thebrooksdc.com) and the Vale – 301 apartments and 18,000 square feet of retail, currently underway. Designed with 323 rental units, including 32 affordable units, and 58,000 square feet of retail, The Hartley is the centerpiece of the vibrant Town Center, which will feature 100,000 square feet of dining, shopping, and entertainment around an active plaza fronting Georgia Avenue.

Scott Allshouse, Whole Foods Market’s Mid-Atlantic Regional President, said, “We’re proud to be part of The Parks at Walter Reed, a development that shares many of Whole Foods Market’s values – community, environmental stewardship, quality, and partnership. We look forward to joining this vibrant community and expanding our presence in the D.C. area.”

“We are pleased to welcome Whole Foods Market to this transformative project. Whole Foods Market will be a key addition to the Parks development in one of Washington, D.C.’s best neighborhoods,” said Hines Senior Managing Director Chuck Watters.

Torti Gallas Urban is the architect for The Hartley with interior design by Hickok Cole Lifestyle and landscape design by Oehme van Sweden. Retail broker CBRE+Streetsense is engaged for the Parks retail leasing.

“The Ward 4 community is excited that the Parks at Walter Reed has secured Whole Foods Market as an anchor for the town center. We look forward to the development of this project and the new retail and amenities it brings to neighborhood residents,” said Ward 4 Councilmember Brandon Todd.

“Since the community began planning the Walter Reed project, our focus has always been on how to reimagine this historic space so that it meets the needs of the neighborhood and city,” said Mayor Muriel Bowser. “Already, the campus is home to a firehouse, schools, as well as housing for seniors and formerly homeless veterans. With so much more on the way, the addition of Whole Foods Market is one more way this development is creating jobs and opportunities for our residents and helping us transform the Walter Reed campus into a community that works for DC.”
