The NoMa BID (yes, more NoMa coverage) and StonebridgeCarras announced this past weekend that Harris Teeter will occupy 50,000 s.f. of space in a 20 year lease at Constitution Square. The development, at the corner of 1st and M Streets, NE, is adjacent to the New York Avenue Metro station. Stonebridge is expected to break ground in April, with the grocer likely to open its doors in late 2010 or early 2011. HT is the first committed occupant of One Constitution Square, which will also house 440 apartments, 340,000 s.f. of office space, and an additional 30,000 s.f. of retail. Stonebridge had recently announced that DOJ would take up 88% of the leasable office space at Two Constitution Square.
The District government also partnered on the project by providing tax incentives to help finance parking for 150 cars. Bethesda's SK&I Architectural Group designed the retail and residential portion of the project.
