Harris Teeter coming to Raleigh's Seaboard Station

Posted July 26, 2016

— A full-service Harris Teeter grocery store is coming to Raleigh's Seaboard Station, according to TradeMark Properties. The 55,000 square-foot store will include a pharmacy, fresh foods and prepared foods center.

“Harris Teeter is the premier grocer in our market and we are excited about bringing them to Seaboard. We intend to retain all of our current tenants at Seaboard Station and to expand with additional local boutiques, services and restaurants.” said Billie Redmond with TradeMark Properties. “Seaboard Station is committed to our community and this exciting addition answers the need for a strong grocery location in the downtown area. And it allows Seaboard to create more opportunities for small business and independent retailers in our market.”

Redmond said the first phase of the project will also include a new parking deck and some residential units.

"The downtown area has grown so much relative to residential living," he said. "It takes that for a grocery store and many other retailers. It's all about the number of rooftops."

A.J. Viola owns the BREW Coffee Bar, right across from Seaboard Station. He said he is excited about the growth and looks forward to see how it will increase his business.

"It makes a huge impact, not only on the economy, but on the lifestyle you hope to live," he said.

Construction on the expansion is expected to begin by the end of 2017, or in early 2018.

Seaboard Station, developed in the 1940's, anchors the north end of downtown Raleigh and has served as the only traditional shopping center in downtown. Seaboard Station currently offers 92,000 square feet of shopping, dining and specialty service options.

    Developed in the 1940s? What is now Seaboard Station shopping center were warehouses servicing the trains at what was Seaboard Train Station (now Logan's) until they redeveloped around 2000!
