After saying last week that it had canceled plans to open a store on Third Avenue in Gowanus, Whole Foods now says it is “actively working on plans for a store at the Gowanus site,” the Brooklyn Paper reported. The project has been delayed for several years as a result of the recession and because pollutants were found at the site. The company made its announcement about abandoning the Gowanus project on the day the public comment period ended for a federal proposal to label the canal a toxic Superfund site.
