Approximately 20,000 square feet of additional retail space will be next to the Basalt Whole Foods Market
ASPWEN AND BASALT REAL ESTATE — When construction is complete on the 47,000-square-foot Whole Foods building at Willits Town Center in Basalt next summer, it will feature more than a grocery store. Whole Foods will take about 27,000 square feet in the building, leaving another 20,000 square feet of commercial space, said Tim Belinski, the leasing contact for the project. There will be a big push to fill that space with retailers rather than real estate offices and other service-oriented businesses, he said…The intent is to recruit retailers from the Roaring Fork Valley and throughout the region to lease the spaces. National retailers won’t be turned away, but the focus is on locally owned shops.
