PHOTOS: Metro Centre Construction

On a windy winter day, construction workers were tirelessly building the first pieces of what will become The Metro Centre at Owings Mills.

Between 125 and 150 workers were installing drywall and putting in plumbing and electrical systems in buildings that will house 232 apartments and 56,000 square feet of retail space on the bottom floor.

“I haven’t seen anything big in Baltimore County for years,” said Steve Creger, safety director for developer David S. Brown Enterprises.

When fully developed, the Metro Centre will include 1.2 million square feet of office space, 300,000 square feet of retail space, 1,700 apartments, a 120,000-square foot community college and library building, and hotels with up to 250 rooms.

The apartment and retail building as well as the building housing what will be Baltimore County’s largest public library and a branch of the Community College of Baltimore County are expected to open in spring 2013.

Why does Brown build such monstrosities? It's like he's trying to fit as much as he possibly can into the smallest space possible. Oh, wait. That's probably what he IS doing.

Has anyone heard any rumors of what retail is planning to occupy the space there? I have heard a national restuarant chain and a dry cleaners has agreed to sign on...that's all I have heard.

BluePeace, Do you know the name of the national restaurant chain?

No I do not. They are being very quiet about the commercial tenants.
