Whole Foods is expected to open its expanded Harbor East market by late 2019.

The upscale grocery chain’s new 50,000-square-foot anchor store will be located on the ground level of the Liberty Harbor East, a 22-story residential tower under construction.

The $170 million Liberty mixed-use project will debut next summer as tenants move into the first of the 282 apartments and 33 condominiums. That will be followed by the opening of Whole Foods, said Jeff Kayce, senior vice president at Bozzuto Development Co., a partner in the Liberty along with Harbor East Management Group.

Last month, the foundation for the top floor of the 22-story Liberty Harbor East was poured.

Whole Foods is relocating from smaller space nearby at 1001 Fleet St., where it has operated a store since 2002. The expanded market will have a cafe and large dining area near the waterfront.
