An Atlanta-based real estate developer announced a national grocery and health food market will open its second location in Greenville as the anchor tenant in a $1 billion project.

Whole Foods Market will become the anchor tenant in the Greenville County Square redevelopment, project developer RocaPoint Partners announced on Monday, according to a RocaPoint news release.

The high-end natural and organic food market will occupy a standalone, state-of-the-art building being designed by MVA Architects and will serve the 3.5-million-square-foot mixed-use development.

SC Biz News attempted to reach MVA Architects via email but has yet to receive a response as of Monday afternoon.

“The Greenville County Square redevelopment will provide a vibrant and business-friendly environment for the region’s five million annual visitors to shop, dine, live and explore,” the release said.

The project sits in downtown Greenville and creates a natural link between Falls Park and new Cancer Survivor’s Park while also connecting to the historic Swamp Rabbit Trail.

“This redevelopment is positioned to be the ideal walkable environment for residents and visitors with a strategic blend of office, hotels, residential, restaurant, entertainment and retail – together with public and community-centric spaces — all encompassed in an urban environment,” said Patrick Leonard, RocaPoint Partners principal. “Whole Foods Market will add to the development’s lively charm and represents the quality of the tenants we’re targeting to drive economic growth while simultaneously answering public interest at Greenville County Square.”

A construction start date has yet to be announced.

RocaPoint Partners, an affiliate of New York-based The Georgetown Company, is a privately held development firm based in Atlanta. The firm invests in commercial real estate investment and development opportunities across the Southeast.
