CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Design plans for West Ashley’s new Whole Foods store will be reviewed Monday night.

The City of Charleston’s Design Review Board will look at several large scale project during the meeting, with at least two based in West Ashley.

Less than two weeks ago Mayor John Tecklenburg announced the arrival of the healthy supermarket chain coming to the Doscher's shopping center on Savannah Highway.

Plans for the store continue to roll in quickly with the DRB meeting Monday.

Renderings show three buildings will be removed from the shopping complex in order to build the Whole Foods store.

Crews would have to tear down the V-GO gas station, Arena City Soccer stadium, and a cosmetic art school right next to Doscher's in order to make room for the new building.

According to the designs, Whole Foods would be built to the left side of Doscher's.

By tearing down the buildings mentioned, it would open the area up for more parking spaces.

The grocery store itself would have a stone and brick look to it, complete with outdoor seating for the cafe.

In addition to the actual grocery store, designs for a second retail building in the complex will also be looked at.

It would be built in a wooded area perpendicular to Doscher’s and behind the Hibachi Grill and Swig and Swine.

Renderings show the ability to have five stores in the building.
