Revitalization Project Seen As Economic Catalyst
Owings Mills, Md. (August 31, 2012) — As part of a visit to the city of Laurel to discuss current business and economic opportunities, Senator Ben Cardin made a special stop at the site of Greenberg Gibbons’ new Towne Centre at Laurel project, the $130 million redevelopment of the old Laurel Mall.
Cardin praised the revitalization project — which will support more than 1,500 jobs and serve as a catalyst for economic development in the area. During his visit to the site, where the former mall is currently being demolished, he was joined by Laurel Mayor Craig A. Moe and met with Kimberly Potember, Senior Vice President of Greenberg Gibbons to view plans of the redevelopment.
“Route 1 and the whole area is going to be impacted in a very positive way,” Senator Cardin said of the project and its surroundings.
Towne Centre at Laurel will be a mixed-use destination with retail, dining, entertainment and residential housing. Plans for the center include 400,000 square feet of retail space, featuring a grocery anchor, sporting goods store, movie theatre, and other nationally recognized retailers and restaurants in a “Main Street” setting. The open-air center will also include 435 residential units.
