945 Florida Ave, NW
Big news from the Washington Post:
Executives at the JBG Cos., one of the region’s largest real estate developers, said they plan to open a Trader Joe’s grocery store in an apartment building under construction on 14th Street NW, just south of U Street next year.
A few blocks northeast of that project, JBG and its retail arm, JBG Rosenfeld, have lined up a commitment from another grocer, Harris Teeter, but it will require winning the rights to some city-owned property on Sherman Avenue.
We’ve long been rejoicing over the coming Trader Joe’s to 14th and U Street, NW but this is the first I’ve heard about the possibility of a Harris Teeter coming to the area.
Back in March 2011 we learned JBG had purchased the former Atlantic Plumbing Supply properties across the street from Duffy’s near the 9:30 Club.
Think a Harris Teeter would do well in that location?
