THE WOODLANDS (June 24, 2014) – Executives from The Howard Hughes Corporation® (NYSE: HHC) and its wholly-owned subsidiary The Woodlands Development Company joined Whole Foods Market® as it broke ground on construction of a 40,000-square-foot store in Hughes Landing on Lake Woodlands on Monday, June 23.

Hughes Landing, a 66-acre mixed-use development well on its way within The Woodlands, will feature up to 11 office buildings; shopping, dining and entertainment; an upscale hotel; a fitness center and up to 800 multi-family residences at full build-out overlooking the 200-acre Lake Woodlands.

Whole Foods Market, the leading natural and organic food retailer, plans to open its new store in Hughes Landing in 2015.
