Whole Foods has finally made it official. The grocer will anchor the retail component of CityLine, KDC’s 186-acre mixed-use complex in Richardson.

Regency Centers, which is partnering with KDC on the retail space, will build a 40,000-square-foot store for Whole Foods, the first tenant in its CityLine Market. The center, located on 11.3 acres at Renner and Plano roads, will have 81,000 square feet in its first phase.

“We were attracted to the vibrancy of the urban environment of CityLine, literally on the border of Richardson and Plano,” said Mark Dixon, Southwest regional president of Whole Foods Market, in a statement. “The green spaces and parks round out the project for a more tranquil feel within such a busy intersection.”

Also underway at CityLine is a four-building, 2 million-square-feet campus for State Farm, and a 500,000-square-foot office complex for Raytheon. Multifamily construction has also kicked off.

Whole Foods at CityLine is slated to open in Spring 2016.
