Bethesda construction update: Harris Teeter (Photos)

Harris Teeter will be in the ground floor of the Flats 8300 luxury apartment building, expected to begin leasing this month. The store, which is being built out by Harris Teeter's own separate contractor, is behind schedule compared with the rest of the Donohoe Construction-built mixed-use project. It will have a pharmacy, and the entrance will be at the corner of Battery Lane and Woodmont Avenue.
If you don't rent at Flats 8300,
this will be your way to drive
into the garage for Harris Teeter

So, from this article, we learned that Harris Teeter has not opened yet.

Maybe Greenhill is a partner or subcontractor in this.

7:06: Maybe if you upgrade your monitor, you'll realize that the report showed you what stage of construction the store is in, moron.

A parking garage?!?! No huge surface parking lot?!?!? I'll stick to the Westbard Giant despite the shopping carts routinely careening down the hill in the lot and into cars.

@ 8:10 AM - the phrase "cling peaches in heavy syrup" just popped into my head.

Speaking of moribund construction, the former Black Finn had a liquor hearing notice for March 3, for the supposedly incoming "De Tapas", meanwhile all of the interior walls are still stripped down to the insulation.

Excellent. Any update on a timeline? What's behind schedule mean in terms of a month? What was the original schedule?

Everytime I park in the garage at Whole Foods in N Bethesda, someone hits my car. Every freaking time. I don't have a dark car, or a ultra big car. Nor do I have a blinking sign that says "Hit Me." Perplexing.

I hate underground parking at grocery stores. I'll have to walk to the Teet here.

Robert Dyer said...

8:26: Original schedule was late November 2015.

We have seen two very different faces of Harris Teeter in our travels through the South. Some of the locations can be very plain and dirty, with a very basic selection of goods, while others seem to be of a newer high-concept gourmet grocery store model.

I certainly hope we get the more high-concept incarnation of Harris Teeter. There are some items they carry that Whole Foods does not.

Why reserve criticism for Greenhill? Isabella was 6 months late with his restaurant and no one complained. That's just one example...all restaurants seem to be delayed in opening!

The stores they have up here in MD are very much the latter.

Clearly a sign of Herr Hans Riemer's failed Nightime Economy Initiative

Greenhill deserves special criticism because it's like every space he has is constantly vacant.

What ever happened to the tenant for the place with the New York city mural painted on the side?

That's not an "update", you Birdbrain. LOL

Harris Teeter told me they expect to open at the end of August. Amazing what you can find when you pick up a phone.

Doing Robert Dyer's job for him since 2013

Robert Dyer said...

12:11: The commenter asked what the original opening date was.

Robert Dyer said...

2:36: Great, but not exactly relevant to people's lives. The construction of the interior is the story here. I don't think anybody is looking at these photos and saying, "OMG, Robert, what day next week is the grand opening - I just gotta know!!"

Anonymous said...

I think that most area residents are more interested in the opening date than arcane details of construction of the interior.

Robert Dyer said...

4:58: Believe me, you're in a one-man minority of people who aren't curious about the status of construction of Harris Teeter.

I tweeted them a few months ago and they replied with an opening in "late summer."

@ 7:28 PM - Folks don't care about when the air conditioning duct insulation is installed there. They care about when it is opening.

Robert Dyer said...

9:19: Right, and the photos here indicate they are not opening anytime soon. You can't open without "duct installation", so you're still "Dumass material all the way."

Which of the following comments provides the most useful information to readers here, regarding the opening of the Harris Teeter?

Robert Dyer said...

10:17: I know your troll comments sure aren't adding anything to the conversation, Mr. Dumass. Get lost, loserman.

I'm making my summer holiday plans to work around the Harris Teeter grand opening.

Dyer deleted the wrong comment. He meant to delete 11:39 AM.

9:19AM - Are you assuming no mechanical engineers are reading? Wrong.

Dona Patrick said...

Actually I came here looking for an opening date, so the comment with the date was helpful to me.
