Traders Joe Possibly Coming to Hyde Park- Does This Mean a Whole Foods Going to Beverly?

Courtesy of Hyde Park Progress
Some time back we had heard rumors about the University buying the Border's building at 53rd and Lake Park if it ever became available. To this was coupled a related rumor that Trader Joe's might be interested in that particular location, if it ever became available.

Well, it has now become available, through one of the most spectacular, non-corruption-induced corporate collapses in recent memory, and as a result, the first rumor has become fact. The U of C now owns the old Border's building. Selling price for the building has not been disclosed, and no possible tenants have been mentioned.

Since the Hyde Park locations is gone and the Beverly location available will Whole Foods bypass Hyde Park and go to Beverly? Doesn't bode well for the Southeast side.

  1. There is a Whole Foods coming in 2012 to 51st/Lake Park. That also means that they'll be renting in a newly constructed building on that corner since the structure already there is expected to be demolished. I recognize however that things can change in a year. Beverly would be a more convenient location should they choose to open there!
