Construction on the new Walgreens in central Annandale is expected to start by mid-September, if all approval processes go smoothly, Elizabeth McKeeby of Walsh and Colucci told members of the Annandale Commercial Business District Planning Committee July 10.
The new drug store will occupy a key position in central Annandale, bordered by Little River Turnpike, Columbia Pike, and Backlick Road. It will replace Fuddruckers, which closed the end of April.
Walgreens will put in brick pavers along the three roads surrounding the store, as well as two bike racks, a couple of benches, more trees, and eight additional “acorn” street lights, says Michael Keith, senior project manager with Urban Ltd. The drive-through pharmacy window will face Columbia Pike.
