ARLINGTON, VA and RESTON, VA--(Marketwire - Mar 18, 2013) - Comstock Partners is pleased to announce that Harris Teeter will be returning to The Eclipse at Center Park at South Glebe Road and Jefferson Davis Highway in Arlington, Virginia. It is anticipated that the completely renovated store will be open for the 2013 holiday season.
The 24-hour Harris Teeter has been a mainstay of the retail experience for this northern sector of Potomac Yard since it opened in 2007. In addition to serving the 465 luxury residences at Comstock's Eclipse project, it is also a lunchtime 'go to' for the Arlington and Crystal City workforce, and the surrounding residential neighborhoods.
Construction will begin within the next several weeks. The renovation will include all new flooring; new drywall and paint; updated equipment; wooden display cases; new fixtures; an expanded seating area; an expanded floral department; new prepared food stations including pizza, an Asian hot bar, and a made-to-order sandwich bar; and sustainable décor elements. The pharmacy has been re-designed to feature an open floor plan that will allow Harris Teeter pharmacists to better serve their customers.
Harris Teeter considered sustainable building design throughout its re-design process. The refrigerated cases will feature motion detection lighting; the company will also install doors with LED lights on the refrigerated cases as well as LED spotlighting throughout the store to reduce energy consumption. Harris Teeter originally installed both an energy management lighting system and a heat reclamation system in this store and will continue to utilize these technologies to reduce energy waste.
