Harris Teeter Coming To Crozet

Great Eastern Management Company announced that Harris Teeter is coming to Crozet in this press release:

Great Eastern Management Company is pleased to announce that Harris Teeter is coming to the Blue Ridge Shopping Center. Located adjacent to new and
expanding major residential communities and along U.S. Route 250 West and across
from the Clover Lawn Shopping Center, this latest in the Harris Teeter chain
will accommodate shoppers living in western Albemarle County as well as the
growing Wintergreen and Stony Creek areas of Nelson County.

With a tag line "Your Neighborhood Food Market", Harris Teeter brings
convenience and variety to shoppers in the Crozet area. "We've been told again
and again, 'we want a grocery store here'" says Andrew Boninti of CB Richard
Ellis, the brokerage firm that aided in negotiating the lease. "Harris Teeter's
arrival is good news for shoppers and the ideal complement to the retail growth
clusters that are coming to Crozet."

Site work is scheduled to begin by early September with the goal of having
a pad-ready site for Harris Teeter to construct its building by June of 2008.
The store is expected to open in late 2008 or early spring 2009. In addition to
the Harris Teeter store, the Blue Ridge Shopping Center will include
approximately 11,000 SF of small tenant shops and an out parcel that could
accommodate a bank or restaurant.

Great Eastern Management Company has developed, leased and managed
commercial and residential properties in the Charlottesville area for over
thirty years. The company also manages office buildings, shopping centers and
multi-family residential properties in Harrisonburg and Lynchburg, Virginia.

Great news for western Albemarle County! A much needed, great grocery store. What is to follow?? I love the shopping center across the street as well.

Old trail is coming together also, so western Albemarle is an even better place to live. Now you won't have to commute so far.

What are your thoughts on development in Crozet? Please post a comment.
