Four New Business Are Coming To The Reisterstown Shopping Center
With new tenants announced for the Reisterstown Shopping Center and Pikesville Shopping Center, the Reisterstown Road commercial corridor is poised for growth and improvement, and I could not be more excited about the 2nd District’s future prospects.
A representative from Greenberg Gibbons, which owns the Reisterstown Shopping Center, shared at Reisterstown Improvement Association Business Roundtable meeting Tuesday that Starbucks, Mattress Warehouse, Tropical Smoothie Cafe and Chipotle Mexican Grill have signed leases to fill the vacancy of the former Burger King site.
In addition, the representative shared that a prospective tenant is in negotiations to fill another vacancy and that the tenant has signed a letter of intent. Also, there is an separate lease being negotiated for a future development in the shopping center.
Recently, several constituents reached out to our office to share concerns about lighting in the parking lot, particularly during the evening hours. During my travels throughout the 2nd District this week, I was pleased to see that new lights had been installed on a number of light towers in the central part of the parking lot after our office informed the property manager.
Reisterstown Shopping Center has been a staple of the Reisterstown Road corridor for many years. Built in the 1960s, it is located directly across from Franklin High School.
Governments do not pick tenants for shopping centers, and I am sure everyone has a “wish list” for what they want to see at the Reisterstown Shopping Center But based on my conversations with residents, they are happy to see these vacancies are being filled and for both shopping centers to be beautified and enhanced.
All of these additions will provide a big boost to the Reisterstown Road corridor at a time when investment in our commercial districts is critical to growing our local economy.
