A Whole Foods Market will anchor the $350 million Towson Row mixed-use project, developer Greenberg Gibbons said Tuesday, cementing plans dating back to 2014 that the popular grocer would sign onto the project.
The 45,000-square-foot store will be located at the corner of York Road and Towsontown Boulevard and include a 6,200-square-foot mezzanine level and outdoor dining terrace. It will also have two levels of parking with covered walkways leading into the store, part of a larger garage at the site.
Construction is expected to begin in winter 2019, with a planned completion of spring or summer 2021. The Towson store will be Whole Foods' fifth in the Baltimore region. The Amazon-owned grocer has two locations in Baltimore and other spots in Annapolis and Columbia.
“We’re excited to move forward with a landmark retailer like Whole Foods to create a first-class mixed-use destination at Towson Row,” said Greenberg Gibbons CEO Brian Gibbons in a statement. “We know from experience that Whole Foods attracts premier retailers and restaurants, and a strong anchor is essential to creating a welcoming and active urban project that invites the community to come together.”
