Brief update on the Harris Teeter Shopping Center

According to the property owners, things are moving along well with the redevelopment of the southwest corner of Wards Corner.  As anyone who has driven through Wards Corner in the last few weeks has seen, the old A.J. Gators building has been torn down and there is a large pit where dirt and old storage tanks have been removed.  Most of the environmental work associated with that old A.J. Gators site is now complete.

Asbestos is being removed from the other buildings remaining on the site and they will be demolished within the next 1-2 months pending a demolition permit from the City.

    Thank you for the update. Many of us (including myself) have been wondering what the status was, since it appears work has come to a standstill. Glad to hear that’s not the case!

    I will be glad when it is torn down. I live right behind it and it appears every time I drive by a new window has been smashed or someone has dumped old furniture there. I’m looking forward to seeing the new shopping complex come to Wards Corner.

    I also want to thank you for the updates. It is exciting to think about the potential for Wards Corner, especially now that the first major steps are being taken.

    So I guess this means the rumors that Harris Teeter pulled out of the deal are false?

    Thank you for the update. We live behind the shopping center and have been concerned as well. I am looking forward to the new shopping center and to checking out the new Guads. When should we expect that to open, btw?
