The developer of the 42-acre Sycamore Hills community, which straddles the border of Upland and Claremont, has landed the Inland Empire’s first Whole Foods Market. Los Angeles-based GPI Companies is jointly developing the 400-home community with North Carolina-based LStar Communities.
The developers received approval from Upland to move forward on the 10-acre Sycamore Hills Plaza retail component of the project, that will be anchored by a 30,000-square-foot Whole Foods. Grading is underway, and the project is expected to be completed late next year.
Sycamore Hills will offer a new grocery brand called 365 by Whole Foods Market. Featuring smaller footprints than most Whole Foods locations, the stores carry a more “streamlined” and “curated” product offering.
