Amazon just bought Whole Foods, and now I'm hoping it doesn't have an affect on future store leases/commitments that were in place before the buyout.

On the contrary--I bet the massive infusion of cash will be a huge boost for them. Maybe that has something to do with Ron's cryptic optimism up above...

Whole Foods will now be able to go back to their rapid expansion model that they abandoned due to activist investors.  They were planning for 1,200 stores.  They have 400+ now.

Exactly what I was going to say. Now you'll have an absolute powerhouse dynamic in Whole Foods that'll elevate the brand and expand it immensely.

The new owners might even try droning veggie pizza to the back yard patio.  They may give customers the option of leasing a drone port-pad just for that purpose.:yawn:

Me and William have been talking about the Whole Foods scenario for a couple of months now. I knew they were in trouble and they had to do something that would make them relevant again. This is what they needed to do. The leadership and corporate offices stay put in Austin, do that bodes well for the status quo of the expansion plan.

 

I don't think this will have any affect on the proposed store downtown.

Saw the flagpole on top of the existing building flying a flag with the Turner (Construction?) logo on it. LOL!

I saw this yesterday and gave to WW. The only thing I can add is I saw worker at site and asked when Demo was to start and who was doing it. I am sure Turner has subcontracted this company out.

Height wise will this be like the 1212?

I could be wrong, but I had in my head that this would be slightly taller... around 305 feet?

Post above says 320'...so that will basically be the same height as the Westin.
