Plans to redevelop Laurel Mall have gained momentum with developers behind the project announcing a ground-breaking ceremony for next week.
Greenberg Gibbons Commercial, which partnered with the site's owner, Somera Capital Management, to redevelop the mall, will hold an invitation-only groundbreaking ceremony Aug. 14.
Plans for the mall’s the demolition of the mall’s parking lot during the holiday season. By May 1 the mall had officially closed, leaving only the U.S. Post Office and Burlington Coat Factor open.
Greenberg announced the mall was pursuing retailers Harris Teeter, Regal Cinemas, and Burlington Coat Factory to anchor what would be called the Town Centre at Laurel.
Before the project could move forward, a deal had to be reached with Burlington, which currently has a store open at the site that would allow for the redevelopment, according to the Laurel Leader.
