Greenberg Gibbons kicks off construction of $350 million Towson Row Project
Towson, MD — Greenberg Gibbons held a construction kick-off celebration for Towson Row ― the $350 million mixed-use destination and new gateway to downtown Towson. The company also announced that it has selected Gilbane Development Company to build the student housing portion of the project and Shamin Hotels to develop the hotel. “Towson Row is the centerpiece of downtown Towson’s transformation,” said Baltimore County Executive Don Mohler. “With over $1 billion in new private investment in downtown Towson, more people are living here, more people are visiting here, and more students are learning here.” Towson Row will be built on five acres between York Rd., Towsontown Blvd., Washington Ave. and Chesapeake Ave. The 1.2 million s/f development will include over 100,000 s/f of retail/restaurant space, 150,000 s/f of class A office space and 250 luxury high-rise residential units. Greenberg Gibbons is leading the development in joint venture with Caves Valley Partners. Gilbane, which has developed state-of-the-art student housing for over 120 colleges and universities, will build 300 units student housing units for the project. Shamin Hotels, a hospitality industry leader that owns, operates and develops hotels under Hilton, Marriott, Intercontinental, Choice, Starwood and Hyatt brands, will develop the new hotel.
