Whole Foods has signed a lease to open a store at 600 H Street NE, according to a press release. The Post’s Jonathan O’Connell was the first to report the news Wednesday morning.

The grocer inked a deal with Insight Property Group, which has plans to build a 430-unit mixed-use building on the 600 block of H Street NE. Whole Foods has agreed to be the anchor tenant of the site, bringing a 38,000-square-foot market to the ground floor of the project.

Currently, a Murry’s grocery store and a storage facility exist on the block; Insight bought the Murry’s store a couple years ago, and is in the process of acquiring the remaining properties. Insight submitted a PUD to plan the development of the project. The H Street Whole Foods is estimated to open in the fall of 2016. The timeline for the completion of the residential component is a little more unclear.

Two weeks ago, UrbanTurf reported that Whole Foods had signed a lease at an upcoming New Jersey Avenue SE project in Navy Yard. This one and the store announced today might not be the only new Whole Foods for the city.

Whole Foods Scott Allhouse told the Washington Post that the market is “very interested” in the Walter Reed site, and has been communicating with the team chosen to develop the site.
