Whole Foods opened last week at the big development known as The Parks at Walter Reed.

Why it matters: The market is one piece of a 66-acre project that reuses historic buildings, adds more than 2,200 new residences, and will be home to many other shops.

Details: The site is located between 16th Street and Georgia Avenue NW, and near Rock Creek Park and the Brightwood, Shepherd Park, and Takoma neighborhoods.

  • The 47,000-square-foot Whole Foods has local produce and more than 800 local items from the region, including cheeses, seafood, meat and poultry, and beer and wine, according to the company.
  • It opened at The Hartley, a luxury apartment building that began leasing last year.

On the site, condos at The Brooks are selling from the low $400,000s and townhomes are for sale at the Aspen Square.

  • Apartments are also for lease nearby at The Vale, and furnished units are available at Common Clover.

What's next: The Walter Reed redevelopment will take a few more years to be completed.

  • More apartments and townhomes are under construction.
  • In total, there will be 130,000 square feet of retail and 325,000 square feet of mixed-use office, medical, and educational space, and a hotel and conference center.
