AUSTIN – WHOLE FOODS

Located just blocks from where Whole Foods Market began as a small neighborhood grocer 30 years ago, Whole Food’s 80,000 square foot flagship store at the corner of Sixth Street and Lamar Boulevard is also one of the company’s largest.

Completed in February of 2008, the store’s indoor double-sided Green Wall suspended from the ceiling is the first thing a customer sees when they enter. Featuring an abstract “wild” design, the wall is 10 ft by 17 ft and weighs in at over 12,000 lbs. A grocery cart escalator runs beneath the wall from the parking lot underneath the building to the store. The Green Wall also hangs beside the Whole Foods eating area where hundreds of people enjoy every day.
