QUESTION: What is the largest mall in Anne Arundel County?

ANSWER: If you guessed Arundel Mills in the fast-growing West County area, you're right, but not for long. All big consumer things, including malls with about 1.3 million square feet and a Muvico, seem destined to be surpassed in size. Westfield Shoppingtown Annapolis officials recently announced plans for a 300,000-foot expansion, which would put the Annapolis mall ahead of Arundel Mills. Once completed, the expansion near Bestgate Road would give the shopping space a total of 1.5 million square feet, making it the largest in Anne Arundel County. County officials recently gave Westfield preliminary approval for the project, with construction slated to begin early next year. The cost is a whopping $100 million or more. Being biggest doesn't come cheap.
