Retailers Add to Redevelopment of the Former Owings Mills Town Center Site

Homesense, a new concept store from TJX, Marshalls, Burlington and Five Below will join Lowe’s and Costco at Mill Station in Owings Mills. Kimco Realty is developing Mill Station, a 640,000 square foot Signature Series development on the site of the former Owings Mills mall.

“The $108 million investment in Mill Station adds to the more than $1 billion of recent private investment in Owings Mills. The construction phase alone brings 250 jobs,” said Baltimore County Executive Don Mohler. 

The 148,000 square-foot Costco is under construction and is on track to open August 2018. The 132,825 square-foot Lowe’s is expected to open January 2019.  Homesense, Marshalls’, Burlington and Five Below will open in spring 2019.

“Mill Station is really coming together. These new stores will be a great addition for Owings Mills and Randallstown residents,” said County Council Chair Julian E. Jones, Jr.

Current tenants of Mill Station include AMC Theatres, Chido’s Tex-Mex Grill, Greene Turtle, Olive Garden, Red Lobster and Red Robin.


Lowe’s will Join Redevelopment of the Former Owings Mills Town Center Site

Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz announced today that Lowe’s has signed a lease with Kimco Realty for space at Mill Station in Owings Mills.

Construction will begin this June on a 132,825 square-foot building for the home improvement retailer, with an expected opening in January 2019. The new Lowe’s will include a 21,587 square-foot garden center.

“We are pleased to have attracted Lowe’s as the newest addition to Mill Station, which will provide a thriving retail center for County residents,” said Baltimore County Executive Kamenetz. “The $108 million investment in the project adds to the more than $1 billion of recent private investment in Owings Mills.”

Kimco began construction in early 2018 on Mill Station, a 640,000 square foot Signature Series development on the site of the former Owings Mills Town Center, which will bring 250 jobs to the area during the construction phase.  

“Lowe’s will be a great addition to the area, along with several other popular shopping and eating destinations that Owings Mills and Randallstown residents can look forward to having right in their own backyard,” said County Council Chair Julian E. Jones, Jr.

A 148,000 square-foot Costco was the first tenant announced for the new project. The Costco store is projected to open in August 2018 and will include a deli, bakery, food court, garden center, optical department, photo center and gas station. Existing tenants of Mill Station include AMC Theatres, Chido’s Tex-Mex Grill, Greene Turtle, Olive Garden, Red Lobster and Red Robin.


Replacement Bridge was Completed in Six Months, Despite Weather Delays 

The replacement Gwynnbrook Avenue bridge in Owings Mills is opening today prior to afternoon rush hour traffic. Department of Public Works engineers closed the previous bridge, spanning a tributary of the Gwynns Falls between Owings Mills Boulevard and Garrison Forrest Road, in December 2016, when inspectors identified safety concerns related to diminished structural integrity. The reopening is important to the community because this bridge carries some 7,000 vehicles per day.  

Construction of the replacement bridge had been underway since last July and included the relocation of utilities and a stream diversion to maintain the tributary’s flow as the project proceeded. A water line, which runs through Gwynnbrook Avenue, was then relocated to permit construction, and the old, 23-foot long bridge was demolished.

The new Gwynnbrook Avenue bridge is a two-lane, single-span, pre-stressed concrete, slab bridge. It is roughly square in outline: fifty feet long and fifty-three feet wide with sidewalks on both sides. Construction costs were about $2.6 million, with 80 percent of the expense covered by the federal government’s bridge program.
