Harris Teeter is coming to Crozet

Seriously.  It’s official!More at Old Trail Living and the HooK’s blog.  When the company first considered adding a grocery store to Crozet all those years ago, it was going to be a Food Lion, says Boninti.  But as Crozet’s demographics have changed with more upscale developments like Old Trail, Grayrock, and Waylands Grant, the company opted for a Harris Teeter instead.Even more at three previous stories at RealCrozetVA.

More on Harris Teeter coming to Crozet

That they are planning to “go green” is exciting.Responding to the query as to whether Harris Teeter would be coming to Crozet, Keith Rudemiller, one of Harris Teeter’s Vice Presidents of Real Estate Development, responded with cautious, non-definite statements that Harris Teeter has “a strong interest” in coming to the area, but without definite agreements signed and in place, he was hesitant to commit to the specifics noted on their website (and below).  In short, it sounded as if there have been letters of intent signed, but no contractual obligations confirming that they will indeed be building a new store in Crozet.In response to the question about why they are going to “go green,” Mr. Rudemiller stated that “there is an an evolution towards green” and that they intend to “be at the forefront of this by building more eco-friendly stores, and incorporate LEED standards.”  Their determination to help lead this trend is commendable.The Crozet Gazette has more in this April’s issue (PDF):Harris Teeter’s corporate communications director Jennifer Panetta said later that a 42,000-square-foot store is tentatively slated to open in late 2008 in the new Blue Ridge Shopping Center adjacent to Blue Ridge Builder’s Supply….  From Harris Teeter’s site:Harris Teeter is committed to sustainable energy efficient designs and practices that are economically viable for our company as it pertains to development, construction and maintenance of our facilities.We have embarked on the Energy Star building labeling program.

Looking for a Harris Teeter update

From a reader:Jim, I tried adding the following comment to the discussion of Harris Teeter coming to town, but it said that the discussion was locked….  In any case, have you heard anymore about Harris Teeter or any other grocery store coming to Crozet?  More specifically, have you heard when they are going to start development of the Blue Ridge Shopping Center?…  I found this website, that says the center would be completed in 2005 🙂 It now appears that Rivanna Realty has been acquired by this company, yet I see no mention of the shopping center.
