Glen Burnie, MD –
Arundel Plaza has undergone major site improvements over the last year to make way for Giant’s newly built 65,000 sq. ft. grocery store, now scheduled to re-open at the end of this month.
The redevelopment of Arundel Plaza kicked-off in early 2016 with demolition of the former AMF bowling alley and Giant’s former store. The property’s owner, a joint venture between affiliates of The Hampshire Companies and MCB Real Estate, has since made major site improvements to improve traffic flow at the center and provide a larger parking field for the remodeled anchor. Over the last year, the developer worked with the State Highway Administration and the office of Anne Arundel County Executive, Steve Schuh, to install a new signalized entrance that enables full access from highly travelled Ritchie Highway and a direct interchange to the MVA located across the street.
MCB Real Estate’s Peter Pinkard commented that, “Giant’s upgraded store along with the variety of new retailers we’re pulling to the center will breathe new life to the property and better serve the surrounding communities”.
Anchored by Lowe’s and Giant, Arundel Plaza is a 278,000 sq. ft. shopping center located at the northwest corner intersection of Governor Ritchie Hwy (Route 2) and Ordinance Road (Route 710) in Glen Burnie, Maryland. Additional plans for the shopping center include delivering 14,000 sq. ft. of new retail space adjoined to Giant’s new store, redeveloping the 6,000 sq. ft. of retail formerly leased to Bob Evans. Several retailers have expressed significant interest in the center. Mod Pizza and Chipotle have already signed on to the project and are scheduled to open in the spring of 2018.
Giant is scheduled to reopen for business on October 26th in their new redesigned store.
