Ribbon Cutting, Taste Testing Tonight, Harris Teeter Officially Open Tomorrow


NoMa finally gets its first grocery store with the impending inauguration of the 50,000 s.f. Harris Teeter store at 1201 First Street, NE, which officially opens its doors tomorrow. Its been two years since StonebridgeCarras announced Harris Teeter would occupy their anchor spot in Constitution Square, and tomorrow brings that promise to fruition. But why wait until tomorrow, when you can get free wine and a sneak peek tonight. Following a ribbon cutting this afternoon, as a sign of appreciation for the neighborhood support, the store will hold a "Taste of Teeter" from 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm, during which the general public may sample wines and products from the store. At eight, with several sampler glasses of red sloshed back and a solid buzz going, attendees will then be set free to do their grocery shopping until the store closes at midnight (Disclaimer: DCMud does not advocate boozing and buying).

The retail scene in NoMa has quickly become more and more crowded over the last several months. With Potbelly Sandwich Works, Georgetown Valet, and TD Bank all opening their doors this past fall, and Roti Mediterranean Grill, CVS, and 7-11 set to cut ribbons in the new year, there are a plethora of new places for The Flats 130 residents to spend their money. And more development is on the way. The first phase of Constitution Square, the 1.6 million SF of mixed-use space located at First and M Streets, has been so successful that just last month developers announced their plans to break ground in May on Phase II, set to feature 345,000 s.f. of office space and an additional 203 residential units. With 21 projects completed since 2001, two currently under construction, and 31 in the pipeline, the NoMa development torch is still burning strong.
