Whole Foods Moves Forward; Association Drops Appeal

The IBJ reported yesterday in its real estate newsletter that the Driftwood Hills Neighborhood Association has decided not to appeal the recent court ruling that opened the doors to a Whole Foods at 86th and Keystone. The Whole Foods will be part of a condo development on the site at the northwest corner of the intersection of Keystone and 86th.

From the IBJ:

Residents of Driftwood Hills argued in a lawsuit filed nearly a year ago that the Indianapolis Metropolitan Development Commission and the City-County Council violated state law by approving rezoning for the project, which is being developed by Paul Kite of Zionsville-based PK Capital LLC.

But Marion Superior Court Judge Gary Miller ruled two months ago that the governmental bodies were well within their authority in approving the rezoning. An agreement between the parties, announced Jan. 26, gives the association input into final plans, which PK Capital has revamped several times in hopes of winning over neighbors.
