Inspiration for the Myers Park Harris Teeter developed from surrounding Neoclassical Italianate homes first built in the 1920’s. Historic details and materials were redesigned with a playful modern touch, also utilizing glazed terra cotta roofs from the same company who supplied the area originally. An emphasis on maintaining a strong street presence guided the design. The octagonal tower functions as a classical jewel, terminating the significant Providence and Queens intersection vistas. Interiors are reminiscent of grand foyers in neighborhood homes, with neutral toned paneled walls and oiled bronze accents throughout. A grand stair wraps the glass elevator that accesses the store’s second floor, and gives a new grocery store experience to the area. A wine bar and outdoor balcony overlooking the intersection is featured on the second floor, giving the shoppers a place to relax while providing a different vantage point for the historic neighborhood. The building reflects the sophistication of the Myers Park fused with the excitement of shopping in a dynamic environment.
