Whole Foods Opens Tomorrow

A friend sent in this tip on Whole Foods and other Vulcan complex tenants:

The downtown Whole Foods Market opens at 8 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 8, with a bread breaking ceremony; a 4- to 6-foot long baguette will be torn into, before the crowds spill into the store to sample the wares. Also opening in the 2200 Westlake Ave. Vulcan complex (in addition to snazzy condos—talk about “whole paycheck”!) is Koots Green Tea, the second stateside location for this Japanese tea emporium (after Bellevue), which will offer such strange new delicacies as matcha lattes (made from young gyokuro green tea leaves), as well as hand-rolled sushi.

About Matt Goyer

I love condos, lofts, floating homes, new construction and mid-century moderns so much so that since starting this blog in 2006 I've written over 2,000 blog posts about them!

For years I resisted becoming a real estate agent preferring to be a marketing executive at Redfin but after leaving Redfin (after seven years!) I caved in the spring of 2014 and became a broker. So if you need help finding that "Urbnlivn-style" place or selling your home email me at matt@urbnlivn.com, I'd be happy to help you.

Prior to Urbnlivn and Redfin, I worked at Microsoft after graduating from the University of Waterloo with a Bachelor of Mathematics with a major in computer science.

You can also find me on Twitter, @MattGoyer, or LinkedIn.

    Thanks for the tip on Koots Green Tea. I think the 2200 complex looks fabulous, and having a Japanese caffeine-house makes it even more appealing. Thank god
    my bus stop is there.
