Safeway Store at Bradlee Construction – An Update

New safeway store sign at Bradlee Shopping Center in Alexandria, Virginia

I previously admired the size of the new Lifestyle Safeway going in at 3526 King Street in Bradlee. I had seen the renderings on this when it was being discussed but, WOW!

I stopped by the site recently to see how the construction was coming along.

Here is a link to some questions about the new store and some renderings of the site can be found at this link on the City’s website.

Here are a few photos I took. To see more photos, visit this link.

Here’s a wide angle look at the new building. The sheer size is really impressive.

Here is the King Street corner which to me looks like it will be the showcase corner of the building.

Not sure what this is going to be. Maybe a loading area perhaps?

Hi Anne –

Will see what I can find out.

Hi Anne –

I do know the store was closed last Summer and Safeway normally looks at a one (1) year to rebuild time frame. Right now, unless otherwise indicated, I would say we’re looking at a mid to late Summer opening.
