Just in case you needed further confirmation of Harris Teeter’s pending arrival at the 8300 Wisconsin apartment project, today developer StonebridgeCarras put out official details of the grocery chain’s lease.
The long rumored pairing was confirmed yesterday by the North Carolina-based grocery in Bethesda Patch. Bethesda-based Stonebridge says the 50,000-square-foot full-service grocery store signed to a 20-year lease for the corner of Woodmont Avenue and Battery Lane.
The groundbreaking for the 359-unit, 430,000-square-foot apartment building is set for April. Crews have been busy with preliminary utility and environmental work at and around the site. The projected completion of the site is Spring 2015.
“Our vision for 8300 is to create a first class, mixed-use project at the gateway to Bethesda that will include outstanding apartments and a great retailer in Harris Teeter that will enhance the entire Woodmont Triangle area,” StonebridgeCarras Principal Doug Firstenberg said in the prepared release. “Given the project’s great location with proximity to the National Institutes of Health, Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and two Red Line Metro Stations, we felt that Harris Teeter would elevate the project to its full potential and be a great addition for the surrounding neighborhood. We are especially pleased to be able to expand our existing relationship with Harris Teeter.”
Harris Teeter has nearby locations in North Bethesda (11845 Old Georgetown Rd.) and Park Potomac (12525 Park Potomac Ave.).
