Coucil Member Predicts Whole Foods Approval

An Indianapolis City County Councilman who has spoken out against the $25 million Whole Foods-Broad Ripple project predicts council will approve it tonight (Monday).

Zach Adamson says he has opposed the project mainly because it doesn't comply with Broad Ripple's comprehensive plan for future development. However, the project has won zoning and variance approvals and has cleared a council committee on its way to the full council floor tonight. The project calls for redevelopment of the two-acre property on the northeast corner of College Avenue and the Central Canal where an empty Shell of a convenience store now sits.

Plans call for a 33,000 square foot Whole Foods along with about 100 luxury apartments and parking garage. Opponents have argued that the project will ruin the unique character of Broad Ripple. Developers say it'll give the area a needed shot of economic adrenalin.
