Englewood Square

A New Whole Foods Market and Retail Development in Chicago's Englewood Community

This 5 acre development in Chicago’s Englewood neighborhood will include a new 18,000 SF Whole Foods Market, 22,000 SF of complementary retail, and two outlot parcels. The Whole Foods Market will provide convenient access to fresh, healthy natural and organic food for residents of Englewood and South Side neighborhoods.

Slated to open in the Fall of 2016, the 5 acre parcel is part of a larger 13-acre development located at a four-way intersection near Kennedy King Community College. The City of Chicago owns the remaining 8 acres and is considering proposals for complementary retail, commercial, and institutional development.

The entire 13 acre site was formerly the location of the Englewood Mall, a multi-use retail development anchored by Sears in this once vibrant community. Click here to learn more about the history of Englewood.

Whole Kids Foundation

This past week, Whole Foods Co-CEO Walter Robb was in town to unveil one of the new school gardens in Englewood, as part of the Whole Kids Foundation initiative to increase healthy eating in schools. Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Alderman JoAnn Thompson were also in attendance at the Miles Davis Academy to tour the new garden and talk with students about their experiences with gardening and fresh, healthy foods. We are so excited to see these new initiatives taking place in our communities!
