Dallas-based De La Vega Capital has secured Whole Foods Market as the anchor tenant at West Grove, its new mixed-use development at U.S. Highway 380 and Custer Road in McKinney.

A public-private partnership with the City of McKinney, West Grove was designed by Gensler. The nature-inspired development will include outdoor decks, air paseos, and lush landscaping.
