The Shops at Kenilworth set for $20M upgrade

Greenberg Gibbons announced plans for a $20 million renovation of The Shops at Kenilworth.

The company plans to reduce the space by 8,000 square feet and add a 20,000-square-foot “market place” that will feature a wine bar, casual and fine dining as well as a rooftop garden.

“With some creativity and polish, this community gem will continue to sparkle for generations to come,” Brian Gibbons, CEO and chairman of Greenberg Gibbons, said in a news release. “Growing up in the Baltimore area, this is a place my friends and family visited for shopping and great community events, like the holiday train garden. We plan to maintain these traditions, but add a fresh look and new energy.”

Renovations to the interior of the shopping center, which was built in 1979 and features anchor tenants such as Jos. A. Bank’s flagship store, will include  updated floors, contemporary fixtures and the inclusion of more natural light.

Owings Mills-based Greenberg Gibbons purchased a portion of the shopping center and took over management last July, and will assume the remaining ownership in July. Construction could begin by May with a target completion date of summer 2017.
