AKRON, Ohio -- Two salons, a pet store and a Great Clips will join 365 by Whole Foods at the West Market Street Station, on the site of the former West Point Market.

The new retail center, located at West Market Street and Hawkins Avenue, is slated to open the summer of 2017, according to a press release.

365 by Whole Foods made news when it was announced last year. The 30,000-square-foot grocery store isn't a typical Whole Foods; it's marketed as more accessible and budget-friendly.

Developed by S.J. Collins Enterprises (SJCollinsEnt.com), a commercial real estate development firm, the Whole Foods Market at Peachtree Crossing has achieved a Green Globes® rating by the Green Building Initiative™.

The team, including Phillips Architects + Engineers, practiced an integrated design process by involving key design professionals from the start. The design took measures to reduce the ecological impacts, including the use of efficient irrigation strategies. Local species of trees, shrubs and other drought-tolerant plants were introduced to conserve water consumption, and green walls were installed to keep the exterior walls at an optimum temperature.

Commercial real estate development firm S.J. Collins Enterprises on Wednesday released an update confirming several leases have been signed for the site.
