Market Street Whole Foods Gets Shiny New Look

If any local architecture firm has plenty of work these days, it's got to be BAR Architects, whose partnership with Prado Group has borne two major supermarket/condo developments.

We featured a rendering of the newer one, at 1401 California, last week — a six-story building that comes right up to the corner of California and Hyde, and also manages to preserve a piece of the old Cala Foods wall and V-shaped ceiling. Moving on to the other mixed-use project, then: the Whole Foods at 2001 Market.

The project has up until now has been depicted in watercolors and simpler renderings, making these latest images a whole different look at the project. BAR notes the building's "emphasis on verticality and 25-30 foot modules," which "allows the building to continue the residential rhythm of the neighborhood."

But enough architalk — according to the architect's site, the project could supposedly begin construction in fall 2010, with the Whole Foods opening early 2012 and the 80 condos coming online by mid-2012.
