The paths of two of Columbia's ailing village centers present a study in contrast. In both cases, the centers' landlords did some outside-the-box thinking to tackle their problems, but their respective approaches differ radically. For years now, shiny new mega-marts have been drawing many single-family-home-dwelling, dual-income-commuting families away from the aging village centers. In many cases, the bulk of the remaining customers are the people who live in the nearby apartments and townhouses, who more often depend on public transportation and have fewer practical choices when it comes to grocery shopping.

The head of a Pikesville-based realty company wants to buy the Owings Mills Mall, saying the site would be ideal for a discount supermarket and big-box stores such as Costco and Lowe's. Carl Verstandig, president and CEO of America's Realty LLC, says he has made an offer to Kimco Realty. His company - whose shopping centers cater to "the blue-collar type" - has been talking with a deep-discount supermarket interested in opening a 65,000-square-foot store at the site, he said. Verstandig said he would demolish most of the mall but keep anchors JC Penney and Macy's, as well as the nearby movie theater.

Most of the long-struggling Owings Mills Mall will be torn down starting in 2013 to make room for a $65 million retail development, a move that Baltimore County officials hope will complement other burgeoning projects in an area targeted for growth. Mall owner General Growth Properties will work with Kimco Realty to redevelop and "de-mall" the 1-million-square-foot site — a move that mirrors the remaking of a shopping area in Hunt Valley. Developers said Thursday that they did not know how much of the mall they would demolish, but they expect anchor stores Macy's and JC Penney, as well as the AMC movie theater, to stay.

Crafting plans to remake the ailing Wilde Lake Village Center and winning approval for them will "take every bit of two years," before any actual work can begin, according to Geoffrey Glazer, vice president of Kimco Realty, the center's owner. Meanwhile, he said, the planned redevelopment of Columbia's nearby Town Center area into an urbanized downtown is making it nearly impossible to attract new merchants to the town's oldest, and now partly empty, village center about a mile away.

The first draft of a redevelopment plan for Columbia's ailing Wilde Lake Village Center may be ready late next month, according to Geoffrey Glazer, vice president of Kimco Realty, the center's owner. Glazer told the Wilde Lake Village board and a crowd of about 20 citizens Thursday night that he hopes to have a plan ready for a public unveiling by late April, but won't likely submit a proposal to county government for review under a new zoning law for village centers until the end of the year.

Like actor Bill Murray in the movie "Groundhog Day," Geoffrey Glazer, vice president for development of Kimco Realty, seems doomed to relive the same moment over and over — whenever he visits the Village of Wilde Lake in Columbia. "Why are you so stubborn and decided not to have a grocery store?" Constantine Philippedes asked Glazer, to loud applause from a large segment of the roughly 100 people seated behind him. "You insisted again and again and again, no grocery store. You're not going to do it," Philippedes predicted.

Crafting plans to remake the ailing Wilde Lake Village Center and winning approval for them will "take every bit of two years" before any actual work can begin, according to Geoffrey Glazer, vice president of Kimco Realty, the center's owner. In the meantime, he said, the still-developing overhaul of Columbia's nearby Town Center area into an urbanized downtown is making it virtually impossible to attract new merchants to the town's oldest — and now partially empty — village center, roughly a mile away.

The Safeway sign in the Kings Contrivance village center has been torn down and the 40,733-square-foot structure will soon meet the same fate, paving the way for a new supermarket chain scheduled to open as soon as July next year. The Safeway closed its doors June 3 to make way for a Harris Teeter supermarket. In January, Kimco Realty Corp., a New Hyde Park, N.Y., company that owns the village center, announced that the North Carolina-based supermarket was coming. Harris Teeter is viewed by retail experts as an upscale supermarket chain, with 149 stores across the nation.
