Harris Teeter, Target announcement coming soon for Canton Crossing

Owners of Canton Crossing, the new development now making its way through planning approvals in the city, are gearing up to announce two anchors: Harris Teeter and Target. A city development source said Friday the two chains are ready to ink leasing deals with Chesapeake Real Estate Group and BCP Investors LLC, principals of the new ownership team of the 31-acre waterfront site located near the First Mariner Tower just off of Boston Street. Plans call for about 275,000 square feet of retail space to be developed in the first phase of construction there, on land previously owned by Exxon Mobil. The Harris Teeter and Target stores would open by 2013, if all planning hearings and the Planned Unit Development proposal for the area are approved before the City Council wraps up its 2011 legislative session on Dec. 5. It would be the second Harris Teeter in the city — the upscale grocer is opening its first location on Dec. 7 at the new McHenry Row mixed use development in Locust Point. ***** Rising above the chaos also known as the Towson round-about, the newly renovated and named Towson City Center stands as a new, true-blue landmark in Baltimore County. Once known as the Investment Building, the structure had a troubled past. It once was known as the “sick building” and was vacated in 2002 after county and state workers there raised a ruckus and filed lawsuits over breathing and other respiratory illnesses they claimed were related to certain elements in the building.
