The Enormous New Whole Foods Sign In Lakeview Is A Whole Lotta Sign

LAKEVIEW β€” It is physically impossible to not know who's moved into 3201 N. Ashland Ave.

This article has 2 other Chicago locations (Show)

From almost any angle at the intersection of Lincoln, Ashland and Belmont avenues, a gigantic sign hangs on a glass-paned facade. In renderings, it was a dark forest green. In reality, it's a snowy white against the blue-green glass.

Whole Foods said it measures 35 feet wide by 25 feet tall, and store design and brand coordinator Christine Sturch confirmed that it is the largest Whole Foods sign in Chicago (inheriting the honor from the city's largest store at 1550 N. Kingsbury St.).

Mochi Bar? 100 Whiskeys? New Lakeview Whole Foods Has It All β€” Take A Look

The city's second-largest Whole Foods opens at 3201 N. Ashland Ave. at 9 a.m. Wednesday after 16 months of construction and a promise that the new grocery store would revitalize the corner of Ashland, Lincoln and Belmont avenues.

A wall mural behind the coffee bar, for example, pays tribute to Rose Records, which used to occupy the building where Whole Foods first opened in Lakeview, 3300 N. Ashland Ave., one block north of the new store.
