Harris Teeter Coming to a Corner Near You (New York Ave Metro)

Thanks to the Bloomingdale (for now) Blog, we have been informed by the ANC Commissioner, 6C05, Alan Kimber, that Harris Teeter ****MAY**** be headed to 1st & M st NE, in a recently approved PUD named Constitution Square. Currently, however, nothing has been documented in reference to a signed lease. The basis for the new location comes as the grocer backs out of a non-binding commitment they had for another location at 3rd & H st NE.

From DCist...

"Harris Teeter had originally been interested in an approx. 40,000 sq. ft. space at 3rd & H Streets NE owned by Stuart Development, but the grocery store chain has since pulled out of its non-binding agreement with the developer in favor of the New York Ave. Metro location. The PUD for the 3rd and H space was approved in part on the premise that there would be a full-service grocery store in the development, so Stuart Development has apparently been pursuing a variety of grocers, including Trader Joe's, but no company has committed to lease all or part of the space for a grocery store yet."

a few things for the record:

one, you should have noticed that there was follow-up to the harris teeter story. check it out here.

secondly, i don't want to be a whiner, but the information was not on the 'bloomingdale neighborhood' blog, but on 'bloomingdale (for now)', which is a different entity.
