Lidl, twice-ranked a Top-10 U.S. Grocer by Food & Wine Magazine, has commenced construction at Lorton’s Liberty Market. A groundbreaking ceremony was held Friday to celebrate the milestone. The new 30,000 square-foot Lidl will be located at 9001 White Spruce Way, Lorton, Va. An opening date will be announced at a later date.
According to The Connection Newspapers
, "Mount Vernon District Supervisor Dan Storck, present for the groundbreaking, said: “The adaptive reuse of the former Lorton Prison has brought many new opportunities to this area. This latest, the groundbreaking for Lidl, not only provides a strong and important anchor for Liberty Market, but also brings a local, walkable grocery store to the many surrounding communities of Liberty, Laurel Hill and Spring Hill."
As per The Connection Newspapers, "Elm Street Development’s James Perry said at the ceremony, “The commercial portion of the Liberty project, Liberty Market, is approved for about 100,000 square feet of space, split between the historic prison structures and new construction. Delivering that much commercial space in one location is only possible if you have a vibrant, attractive anchor tenant that draws people to your center. Lidl is that anchor tenant for Liberty Market."
