Whole Foods just signed a big lease renewal at its Pompano Beach distribution facility.

The natural and organic foods retailer expanded its occupancy at the Pompano Business Center from 71,754 to 123,062 square feet, according to Thursday’s written announcement from Atlanta-based landlord Industrial Developments International. The center’s Building M is now 100 percent full following the lease renewal.

Whole Foods operates the 2700 Northwest 19th Street facility as its South Florida distribution hub. The existing space is still being used as cold storage, while the additional square footage is slated for a bake house and banana distribution.

Charlie Allen and Sky Groden of Cushman & Wakefield represented Whole Foods in the transaction. IDI’s Larry Dinner represented the landlord.

“Whole Foods Market has been an important partner in Pompano Business Center for more than four years,” Dinner said. “The extension and expansion of the company’s lease is evidence of the growing demand for Whole Foods Market within” South Florida. — Eric Kalis
