Novak Construction served as General Contractor for 55 Whole Foods Market projects that include ground-up steel and masonry buildings to multiple build-outs. Seven of these locations were interior build-outs within former Dominick’s stores.  Each store includes new electrical, mechanical, refrigeration systems, plus new flooring, wall finishes and decor.

The project featured above is the second largest ground-up Whole Foods in the Midwest. It is a 3-story, 75,000 square foot Flagship store located in Chicago’s historic Lakeview neighborhood. It includes an enclosed “SMART Park” parking garage for 300 cars, a 4,000 square foot second floor dining porch and an innovative LiveWall green space softening the building’s sleek architecture, while providing greenery along the busy pedestrian corridors. The interior build-out incorporated customized sections for seafood, cheese and whole body, along with an espresso bar, wine bar, bakery and a full-service Allegro Coffee Roastery providing fresh coffee for all Midwest Store locations. The shell and interior of this development was completed over a 22 month time line.
