The new Whole Foods in Gowanus is getting close to finally opening. Very close. I had my doubts when they posted a sign a few months back that boasted they’d be opening in “Late 2013,” but it does seem like a possibility with a month left to go. All the brick is up. The park area on the canal waterfront is nearly done. Solar panels in the parking lot have been installed. The greenhouses on the roof are in place. Workers mill about inside the building installing the interior at a furious pace. Things are happening — fast. Check out some photos I snapped last Wednesday below.
