Costco to anchor this new, open-air shopping and dining experience at former Owings Mills Mall Site.
Kimco Realty presented projects for Mill Station – a new, open-air shopping destination at the original place of the Owings Mills Mall in Baltimore County, Maryland. Costco will anchor the 575,000 sqft development, which will home national, regional and local retailers, a diversity of dining options, ample parking, green space and pedestrian-friendly walkways. Construction is planned to start in early 2018, with completion supposed in early 2019.
“Mill Station will be a dynamic retail destination that breathes new life into the Owings Mills community,” declared Conor Flynn, Kimco’s Chief Executive Officer. “Kimco is transforming this asset, delivering an impressive mix of national brands, local shops and dining options in a modern, open layout that better reflects the desires of local shoppers and the character of this area.”
The nearly $108-million, ground-up development will house up to 30 retailers and restaurants, linked by a network of walkways and connections to existing retail and office. Mill Station lies in proximity to mass transit and enjoys direct access to I-795, connecting Carroll County with Baltimore County. The shopping center will serve a community of 166,000 in the neighboring five-mile area, with an average household income of almost $93,000.
Costco will open a 148,000 sqft warehouse club at the shopping center, to add a deli, food court, bakery, garden center, optical department, photo center and a gas station. The Mill Station club will be the only Costco spot within a 15-mile radius. Kimco is negotiating leases with some additional retailers to occupy a total of 350,000 sqft at the new center. Besides, the site’s existing AMC Theatre will be thoroughly modernized, creating a state-of-the-art cinema experience.
“We are confident that Mill Station will be a lifestyle destination that the Owings Mills community will enjoy for years to come,” stated Tom Simmons, President of Kimco’s Mid-Atlantic Region. “We’d like to thank the Owings Mills residents, area businesses, and local officials, whose voices and opinions were heard and appreciated throughout the planning process.”
