The legal path is clear for the Kingstowne Wegmans, but the supermarket company doesn't know when the location will open.
Construction of the Hilltop Village shopping center at Beulah and Telegraph, where the Wegmans will be built, was held up by a lawsuit until recently. Glenn S. Ovrevik, who lives near the proposed site, filed the lawsuit over a proposed stormwater pond that was part of the Hilltop Village plan.
Ovrevik's lawsuit headed to the Virginia Supreme Court, before having an appeal rejected last month, as first reported in the Washington Business Journal.
Although Ovrevik has the option to request that the Virginia Supreme Court to reconsider his appeal, his attorney, Zachary Williams, told Patch that Ovrevik won't.
While the lawsuit is over, however, Wegmans said it does not know when the store will open. A Wegmans spokeswoman told Patch last week that the company is in discussions with the site's developer, C & E Real Estate Services.
In April, Hilltop Village's site plan received approval.
