What's next for the Owings Mills Mall site? "Owings Mills Town Center"
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (WBFF) - Demolished after 30 years, the once-grand Owings Mills Mall is now a major construction site.
It's set to be replaced with a new type of shopping center: an outdoor-style one, similar to Hunt Valley Towne Centre.
The businesses in what will become "Owings Mill Town Center" are still unconfirmed. Baltimore County Councilman Julian Jones, who represents the area, had said he could confirm a major tenant this week, but on Tuesday said the business had asked for an extension on making a final decision.
Kimco Realty, which is developing the site, also said Monday: "At this time we don't have any additional updates."
Its website shows plans for a $108 million project, to be completed in 2019, "with individual, exterior-facing shops, several big-box stores and a lifestyle component."
A progress photo from earlier this month shows plenty of construction and clearing still underway at the site.
Kimco spokesperson Jennifer Maisch said she had no updates from a statement made in August, which said: "Kimco has made significant headway in its plans to redevelop the long-vacant Owings Mills Mall, with the results of our community survey showing overwhelming support for an open-air concept. There has been considerable interest from prospective tenants, and our leasing team has been working diligently with several retailers. At this point in time, we are not at liberty to discuss these deals publicly until certain due diligence periods are complete and contingencies met. Kimco anticipates it will be able to provide a more detailed update in the fall of this year. We would like to thank the residents of Owings Mills for participating in our survey, and also our local officials, who have been excellent partners as we work through this collaborative process. We know that once this project is completed, it will provide residents with a shopping destination they will enjoy for years to come."
