Ballston Harris Teeter Redevelopment Plan To Get Airing On November

The proposed redevelopment of the Harris Teeter grocery store at 600 North Glebe Road in Ballston has gained the support of the county manager’s office and will now go through Planning Commission and County Board discussion in the coming weeks.

The proposal calls for a three-building compound with 732 apartments, a new Harris Teeter, an additional 10,600 square feet of retail space, around 950 parking spaces in surface and below-ground lots, as well as an open space totaling almost two-thirds of an acre.

The project, which would have a floor-area ratio of 3.21, will incorporate both the current Harris Teeter and the adjacent American Service Center property as well as a single-family home at 525 North Thomas St. The existing supermarket is expected to remain open as the project is built in phases.

Even as the county staff supports the proposal, they acknowledge some community concerns ranging from architecture and parking to tree preservation.

After the review by the Planning Commission in early November, the proposal is expected to go to the County Board on Nov.16.
