The Teeter Invasion

Foodie alert!

It's hard to miss news about Harris Teeter these days. The grocer is scheduled to open its Kings Contrivance store on May 20. WaPo recently reported that the chain opened its 20th store in the Washington area, a store in the District, the city's first. HT first planted its flag in the region in 1998. The Sun reported on plans for other stores in the Baltimore area as part of a recent, gushy feature.

A tipster told us the development firm Greenebaum & Rose Associates recently told homeowners in Maple Lawn that Harris Teeter has signed a lease for the shopping area on Route 216. Supposedly the grocer will break ground this fall and open in 2009.

WaPo said the planning board approved:

Maple Lawn Farms, north side of Route 216, west of Route 29 at a future Westside Boulevard, Fulton. Maple Lawn HT LLC, Baltimore. The planning board approved a site development plan for a 49,472 square-foot Harris Teeter grocery store on 4.24 acres.
