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.

A new mega outlet mall - planned for right next to the White Marsh Mall - is being slipped through Baltimore County's development process without any public consideration by the County Council of traffic, the surrounding retail market, the environment or dozens of other potential impacts on the community. More than five years ago, developers first proposed a mixed-use project for the 88-acre property known as Nottingham Ridge off of Philadelphia Road and White Marsh Boulevard. They planned a mix of homes, office space and hotels, plus a modest amount of restaurant and retail that would be aimed at basic services for that community.

Developers of the Foundry Row retail project in Owings Mills say they are on track to start construction this summer on a $140 million shopping center featuring Baltimore County's second Wegmans grocery store. In an opinion issued this week, the county Board of Appeals upheld an administrative law judge's earlier decision to approve the development at the site of the former Solo Cup plant on Reisterstown Road. And Thursday, officials at Greenberg Gibbons, the center developer, said their company has settled a lawsuit that Solo Cup filed against it involving damage to energy plant equipment on the 50-acre property.

Empty stores haunt the corridors of Owings Mills Mall — their gates locked and shelves and racks bare. Slowly they have trickled out: Forever 21, Nine West, Express, all gone. Hulking department stores that once anchored the mall have shut down, leaving thousands of square feet of nothing. And as Ken James, a shopper and a suit specialist at the mall's Macy's, put it, "When McDonald's moves out, you know it's bad. " This is the latest bout of an identity crisis that has plagued Owings Mills since it opened in 1985.

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.

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.

With the swipe of an excavator, a demolition crew began taking down the abandoned Solo Cup factory in Owings Mills on Thursday, work that will clear the way for new development that was once threatened by opposition. When the abandoned plant is flattened, developers plan to build a $140 million shopping center anchored by the upscale grocer Wegmans, as well as a gym, restaurants, offices and stores. Developers say Foundry Row will open by late 2015 or early 2016. The ceremonial start to demolition at the site on the corner of Reisterstown and Painters Mill roads followed months of debate among residents, developers and Baltimore County Council members.

Many in Baltimore County and elsewhere are no doubt bewildered by all the fuss that was raised in recent months over the redevelopment of the former Solo Cup plant in Owings Mills into an upscale development featuring a Wegmans supermarket. If you're going to build a shopping center (and built-up Reisterstown Road is no stranger to them) isn't this what you'd want? But alas, the proposal proved as contentious and fraught with political intrigue as any county land use decision in recent memory.

The Baltimore County Council on Tuesday voted to allow retail at the former Solo Cup plant in Owings Mills, but opponents of a planned shopping center there say they will not give up their fight against the project. At a packed meeting, the council decided 6-1 to approve a zoning change at the old manufacturing site on Reisterstown Road so that developer Greenberg Gibbons can move forward with its proposed $140 million Foundry Row shopping center featuring a Wegmans supermarket. Those who are against the project say they will now seek to bring the issue to a voter referendum.
