Among them were Upper Park Heights and Roland Park, which also grew wealthier. The Cordish Co. is now exploiting that trend. It is acquiring Reisterstown Road Plaza, a covered mall that opened in 1962 but then fell on hard times. Cordish is pouring money into revitalizing the 50-acre property. A new Home Depot opened recently. Next to come is the first Applebee's chain restaurant in the city, a new Giant supermarket and a Marshalls department store.
