DC’s Harris Teeter boom continues.

A recently proposed project at the intersection of Georgia Avenue, Eastern Avenue and Kalmia Road (map) would bring 220 residential units and a Harris Teeter grocery store to the area just south of Silver Spring.

Though neither project is final yet, Harris Teeters could also be a potential part of both the McMillan Redevelopment project and 965 Florida Avenue NW.

ANC 4A Commissioner Dwayne Toliver told UrbanTurf that the project developer is Douglas Development. Douglas has submitted a Planned Unit Development (PUD) for the project, and is in the process of soliciting community feedback. (There will be a meeting at 7pm on Wednesday night at 7820 Eastern Avenue NW to discuss the project.) An underground parking lot will accommodate Harris Teeter patrons and residents, and they are planning an outdoor seating area, presumably for those grabbing a meal at the market.

Right now, construction is estimated to start in January 2015; the Harris Teeter would open by the Fall of 2016. No word on if the units would be condos or rentals.

    Good old Shepard Park. Used to be a nice seedy strip club there. [Part of this comment has been removed by the moderators due to its inappropriate nature.]

    What is with all of the Harris Teeters? Whole Foods prices, Giant quality. No thanks.

    Eponymous hit the nail on the head. Teeter used to delivery on quality and customer service but lately they've dropped the ball. The prices? Teeter's actually gotten more expensive than the other supermarket chains.

    Is there any update on this project? I emailed Douglas Development and they said they're trying to make it happen but it may not...hope they bring Harris Teeter to this part of town and would be great to develop that section of Georgia Ave.

    A community meeting was held last night in Shepherd Park about this project. The plans have been updated--see attached Powerpoint: http://wp.me/p3yifG-2N
