Founder & Chairman Emeritus
Chairman & CEO
With a focus on innovative development concepts and a commitment to enhancing communities, Erwin Greenberg and Brian Gibbons are the visionaries behind many of the most successful town center and retail destinations in Maryland.
In the past 15 years alone, Greenberg Gibbons has created award-winning, mixed-use and revitalization projects valued in excess of $1.2 billion. Major highlights include transforming the “dead” Hunt Valley mall into Hunt Valley Towne Centre, the dilapidated Parole shopping center into Annapolis Towne Centre, and, most recently, the declining Laurel Mall into the new Towne Centre at Laurel.
Other notable projects include the ground-up development of Turf Valley Towne Square in Ellicott City and Waugh Chapel Towne Centre in Gambrills, which was the country’s largest retail construction project in 2012. With its highly anticipated $140 million Foundry Row project scheduled to open in Owings Mills next year and plans to renovate The Shops at Kenilworth in Towson, Greenberg Gibbons continues to create valuable community assets where people love to work, shop, live and play.
Greenberg Gibbons also is active in bettering the local communities it serves through thoughtful development, civic engagement and environmental stewardship. The redevelopment of Annapolis Towne Centre, for example, involved totally remediating the site of one of the largest dry-cleaning spills in Maryland — a process that was recognized by the prestigious Phoenix Award for Brownfield Development. The company actively supports many diverse nonprofit organizations and causes throughout the region, most recently donating $300,000 to the parent-teacher organizations of 12 schools near Waugh Chapel Towne Centre.
This dedication to giving back extends to Erwin and Brian’s personal volunteerism. Erwin has served on several nonprofit boards, including St. John’s College in Annapolis, and as president of nonprofit institutions such as Comprehensive Housing for the Aged Inc.
Brian serves on the boards of Sinai Hospital, Hospice of the Chesapeake, and the University of Maryland at Baltimore. Summarizing his firm’s philosophy, Gibbons adds, “Our team remains passionate about creating great destinations, while also contributing to the vitality of the communities we serve and our home state of Maryland.”
