PCC Natural Markets' Edmonds, Washington store

Retail development company the Velmeir Companies has announced that PCC Natural Markets (PCC) will anchor a proposed new mixed-use development in Washington’s Madison Valley in 2017, PCC’s 12th store.

PCC, the United States’ largest member-owned natural foods market, will occupy 25,000 square feet in the new building. The project will include 75 one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments above the grocer and an underground parking garage.

Plans for the building include a green roof, rooftop terrace and street side plantings as well as setbacks more generous than required by code. Velmeir is also constructing a mixed-use apartment building in Queen Anne.

“There is such a passion for food in Madison Valley that can be seen in the restaurants, cafes and bakeries that thrive along Madison Street as well as the continued success of Central Co-op on Capitol Hill,” said Cate Hardy, CEO, PCC Natural Markets.

“We are thrilled to join such a strong community alongside Velmeir while also bringing our fresh, organic produce, high quality meats and seafood, and exceptional customer service to shoppers in Madison Park, Madrona, Leschi and the Central District.”
