Get your bright green tote bags ready, Water Street, because Publix GreenWise Market is opening on the ground-floor of 815 Water Street in 2021.
The grocery store is set to be an integral part of the residential building that’s under construction at Channelside Drive and Water Street.
What is GreenWise? Publix describes it as an organic specialty market. The store is all about promoting healthy eating and habits, though we sometimes can’t help but overindulge in the bulk section.
The market also puts an emphasis on healthy prepared meals, which works perfect for us. Perks of a dinner out, but, you know, we can totally just stay in our AC’d apartment.
The CEO of Strategic Property Partners, LLC (“SPP”), the Tampa-based development firm, said, “We are excited to bring a critical grocery anchor to downtown Tampa, which will be walkable for residents of Water Street Tampa and our neighboring communities.”
Water Street is all about wellness, in case you haven’t noticed. It’s the first neighborhood in the world to receive WELL D&O (Design and Operations) status under the WELL Community Standard.
What does that mean? Don’t worry, we had to look it up too.
Water Street Tampa aims to positively impact individuals throughout the public spaces where they spend their time. A WELL community functions to promote health and well-being across all aspects of community life.
This latest installment of GreenWise meets the Nourishment objective of the WELL D&O status by providing access to fresh foods. The grocery store will be supplemented by regular farmers’ markets throughout the neighborhood.
