Whole Foods Market will open its biggest store in North Texas at the Park Lane development.

The Austin-based natural and organic grocer has created 350 jobs in its 64,000-sf store, which fronts Greenville Ave. It has also brought the retail occupancy at the one-year-old Park Lane project to 60 percent.
Two more North Texas Whole Foods Markets are under development. One site opens at the Village at Fairview in early fall, and a Tarrant County store is waiting for roads to be built. These will be the region’s eighth and ninth Whole Foods Markets.
Park Lane is a 33.5-acre, $750 million mixed-use development that includes 750,000 sf of existing office space and 700,000 sf of retail, restaurant and entertainment space
