ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - There's a whole lot of excitement in the Central West End and it's all because of a Whole Foods store.
The groundbreaking is finally here. The development is called City Walk and it will sit on the corner of Euclid and West Pine, right in the heart of the Central West End.
At 10 a.m. Tuesday, Mayor Francis Slay and developer Bruce Mills formally broke ground on the much-anticipated project.
The addition of the Whole Foods will make it the third store in the St. Louis area. The new market will be on the ground level of the new City Walk development. The $70 million mixed use project will include about 175 apartments on the upper six floors, plus a fitness center and garage.
It's set to open in 2015. Part of the financing includes $10 million in TIF tax breaks.
