After months of construction delays, Midtown’s long-awaited Whole Foods mega-store is on track to open April 5.

Whole Foods Market’s South Region President Bobby Turner broke the news Tuesday during Midtown Alliance’s annual meeting at the Fox Theatre.

The more than 70,000-square-foot, high-end grocery store—sited at the corner of 14th and West Peachtree street—will be the largest Whole Foods in the Southeast.

The much-anticipated market, which Midtown leaders maintain could be one of the “biggest connection hubs for the Midtown community,” is slated to include a pub, cooking school, microbrewery, and eateries.

In May, construction will launch on two new multi-use trails planned to connect the finished South Peachtree Creek Trail, which opened northeast of Emory’s Clairmont campus in October, to the school’s main Druid Hills campus.

As living and working in walkable urban centers becomes more popular, interest has risen in such projects, which are often called deck parks. Dallas completed a $112 million, 5.2-acre park over the Woodall Rodgers Freeway in 2012, sparking commercial and residential development around it. It now draws crowds for food trucks, a reading area, a playground and free concerts.

Since then, dozens of deck parks have been proposed in about 30 cities including Philadelphia, Denver and Los Angeles, said James Burnett, a landscape architect whose firm works on many such plans, including two in Atlanta.

“Open space drives real estate values through the roof,” he said. “It was this big cavern and now it’s a green oasis.”

Backers of deck parks say they could help lure tech companies seeking to expand their presence outside of Silicon Valley. Critics say they often benefit developers and siphon valuable dollars—either through direct government support or tax-financing plans—from more pressing needs such as road repairs, expanded public transit and affordable housing.
