Please note that my choice of words may have been a bit too strong. My *understanding* is that Harris Teeter has made some level of commitment to locate at 1st & M Street NE. It is not clear how firm the commitment is, and my understanding is that a lease has not yet been signed (these things take a while).
I do know for a fact that they pulled out of the (non-binding) "commitment" they had to locate at 3rd & H Street NE.

here's the original post:
are we going to be getting a fancy new grocery store really close to bloomingdale? according to this, at the blog of ANC6C05 commissioner alan kimber, we are.
specifically, here's the money quote:
3. Harris Teeter subsequently pulled out of its non-binding commitment, and has now committed to locate in an approved PUD project called Constitution Square at 1st & M Street NE [my emphasis] (adjacent to NY Ave Metro station).
here's a blurb about the building at the official noma BID website. might be awhile, but this sounds promising.
