Owings Mills, Md — Greenberg Gibbons and Vanguard announced today that construction of the new Wegmans has begun at Foundry Row.
Wegmans will be one of the first stores to open at Foundry Row, the $140 million, 50-acre redevelopment of the site of the former Solo Cup factory on Reisterstown Road in Owings Mills. The premier grocer is consistently rated the #1 supermarket in the United States. The highly anticipated 110,000 s/f store is expected to open in September 2016.
“We are thrilled to start construction on Wegmans and bring such a first class brand to the Owings Mills area,” said Brian Gibbons, Chairman and CEO of Greenberg Gibbons. “We look forward to seeing Wegmans open its doors at Foundry Row next year, followed by a great mix of other top-quality stores, services and restaurants.”
“It’s exciting to see Wegmans taking shape here in Owings Mills. Greenberg Gibbons is building a first-class project that will help make Owings Mills a destination for the entire area,” said Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz.
"The community is really excited that Wegmans will soon become a reality," stated Baltimore County Councilwoman Vicki Almond. "It sends a strong message that Baltimore County is a great place to do business."
Wegmans will be joined by LA Fitness, Sports Authority, DSW, Ulta Beauty, Panera Bread, Zoe’s Kitchen, Smashburger, Nally Fresh, LifeBridge Health and a variety of other local and national retailers, eateries and conveniences at Foundry Row.
Construction for the overall project began last summer.
Foundry Row will support 2,300 full- and part-time jobs in Baltimore County during the construction phase, and will permanently support nearly 3,100 jobs.
