“Officials from the Rochester, New York-based grocer were in town Thursday to tout its soon-to-open Alexandria store. Talks between Wegmans and the Hines Interests LP team chosen to develop the Walter Reed campus are still taking place, spokeswoman Jo Natale said.”
“Your wish is about to be granted… Over 50,000 sf of Foods fit for the Whole neighborhood just north of V Street… expect an official announcement VERY soon. The poster below is spot on with location [965 Florida Ave, NW] but the opening will be sooner than 4 yrs…”
Ed. Note: This was the once hoped for Harris Teeter location. If everything is green lighted, how long do you think it would take to get this from vacant lot to new building?

“@mr_roaming We have a store in development in DC but not sure on the location.”
Now we already know Whole Foods already had announced plans for H Street, NE and Navy Yard. So I’m guessing/hoping the store in development is one not already announced yet? Surely Whole Foods would know the location of a store in development right? So were they being coy? Giving us a hint? Help me dissect this tweet! Does this give greater hope for a Whole Foods around 8th/U St/Florida Ave?
Last week we learned about plans for a Localteria in Blagden Alley. The owner sends me an update via email:
“We opened Localteria today in Blagden Alley, 1209 10th St NW REAR. We don’t have all of the items in yet, but it’s still surprising to see what a variety of foods and beverages our neighbors are making.”
Hours are 11 to 11 and midnight on weekends. And standby for beer and wine when they get a liquor license.
“@PoPville FYI the Safeway is closing due to the burst water line. Announcement just came over the loud speaker.”
@ktstritz tweets us the photo above:
“It’s snowing. The Petworth Safeway is flooding. #stateofemergency”
JH emails us the photo below:
AP emails us the video below:
“So on top of the crowds at the new Safeway in Petworth, a pipe just burst in the garage and in the store. This is the scene downstairs. If that freezes, at least a dozen cars are going to have a nightmarish time getting out.”
A new venture from the former Blagden Alley Waffle space – a “locateria”. I’m told it’ll be like a corner store featuring all local items. Not sure of the opening date but I’ll definitely update when more is known.
When we spoke about Park Chelsea on Monday a reader wondered about the Whole Foods. It’s coming right next door the Chelsea but is currently a big a whole in the ground. It’ll also have 336 apartments:
The target opening date is early 2017. The rendering:
