MIDTOWN DISTRICT WHOLE FOODS
The Midtown district of Tampa is being completely re-developed and transformed into an urban travel hotspot. Designed with urban influence, this new district combines working, living, shopping, entertainment, socializing, and hospitality all in one place. Midtown sits on 22 acres of beautiful lakefront land that will soon feature 1.8 million square feet of retail, residential, and social spaces. Tampa praises the districts ease of parking and walkability, as well as it’s flexible variety of indoor and outdoor activity choices for both day and night including. A large part of the project includes the relocation of a Whole Foods grocery store to a new building with an attached parking complex. This new grocery store accompanies a hotel, office buildings, residential and retail spaces, a 3-acre pond and jogging trail, a dog park, and easy highway access.
MG McGrath is working on much of the Whole Foods building exterior for the Midtown district. We will be providing and installing 2,625 square feet of PAC CLAD corrugated metal panels, 6,800 square feet of custom perforated Centria corrugated panels, 8,400 square feet of Nichiha fiber cement wall panels, and 11,133 linear feet of aluminum tubing. Much of the paneling will be finished in a green color to match Whole Foods’ branding. The Nichiha panels are from the Vintagewood Domino and Illumination lines both featuring a custom green finish. The Centria perforated, corrugated panels also feature a custom green finish. Our Architectural Surfaces team is also installing z-furring and hat channel along with all of the panels for the building’s exterior
