Wegmans is continuing its rapid expansion across the D.C. area, signing its third new lease in the last year.

The Rochester, New York-based grocer signed on to anchor B.F. Saul's planned 2.8M SF development near the Twinbrook Metro station in Rockville, the Washington Business Journal reports

Twinbrook Quarter, as the developer has branded it, is planned for an 18-acre site at 1500-1616 Rockville Pike that currently features a low-rise strip mall with surface parking. Bethesda-based B.F. Saul, working with architecture firm Torti Gallas + Partners, filed an application for the project in August. 

The development is slated to include 11 mixed-use buildings with a total of 1,865 multifamily units, 431K SF of office and 473K SF of retail. It would also include an entertainment venue and a 1-acre park. 

B.F. Saul's announcement did not say how many square feet Wegmans would occupy or when it plans to open. The grocer is the first retailer the developer has announced for the project. 

Wegmans last year signed on for its first location in the District, taking 80K SF at Roadside Development's redevelopment of the former Fannie Mae headquarters on Wisconsin Avenue. The grocer in November signed on for 84K SF at StonebridgeCarras' Hoffman Town Center project in Alexandria.

Wegmans is also reportedly planning a location in southern Loudoun County. The grocer is anchoring Capital One's new McLean campus with an 80K SF store, with plans to open later this year.
