Greenberg Gibbons announced today that Whole Foods will anchor the retail component of Towson Row, the $350 million mixed-use destination and new gateway to downtown Towson, Md., being developed in partnership with Caves Valley Partners. The 45,000-square-foot store will feature a 6,200-square-foot mezzanine and outdoor dining terrace with views of the development’s plaza.
Whole Foods will be located on the corner of York Road and Towsontown Boulevard and offer two levels of convenient parking with covered walkways leading into the store. Construction on Whole Foods is expected to begin in winter 2019 and will take approximately 18 months to complete.
“We’re excited to move forward with a landmark retailer like Whole Foods to create a first-class mixed-use destination at Towson Row,” said Brian Gibbons, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Greenberg Gibbons. “We know from experience that Whole Foods attracts premier retailers and restaurants, and a strong anchor is essential to creating a welcoming and active urban project that invites the community to come together.”
“Towson Row will bring a new vibrancy to downtown Towson, and the confirmation of Whole Foods as the anchor tenant will benefit not only surrounding businesses, but all of the surrounding communities,” said Will Anderson, Director of the Baltimore County Department of Economic and Workforce Development. “We look forward to seeing this project come to life.”
Towson Row is currently under construction on five acres between York Road, Towsontown Boulevard, Washington Avenue and Chesapeake Avenue. The 1.2 million-square-foot development will include over 75,000 square feet of retail/restaurant space, 150,000 square feet of Class A office space, 300 student housing units, 200 luxury high-rise residential units and a 220-room hotel.
“The addition of Whole Foods is an exciting milestone in the revitalization of Towson and aligns with my 5th District vision to nurture its development,” said Baltimore County Councilman David Marks.
