Councilman David Marks announced on Tuesday that further improvements are planned at Fullerton Plaza, as the owner plans to incorporate a 34,000 square foot fitness center into the renovated shopping center.
Plans call for a reconfiguration of the southern parking area.
Additionally, a sidewalk will be extended from Fitch Avenue to the proposed shopping area.
Kimco Realty is working with a national fitness company to co-anchor the shopping center, along with Weis Market.
Further details will be forthcoming over the next few weeks.
“The redevelopment of the aging Fullerton Plaza has been a milestone for this part of the Belair Road corridor,” said Councilman Marks. “I want to thank Kimco Realty for their work and look forward to further improvements.”
Baltimore County Councilman David Marks announced on Tuesday that the new Weis Markets at Fullerton Plaza will open on Thursday, April 12, at 6 a.m.
The 67,500 square-foot store replaces a closed K-Mart location.
Weis Markets estimates the project will create 140 new full- and part-time jobs, driving employment in the region.
“I am delighted by the renovation of this shopping center and the opening of the new Weis Markets in Fullerton,” said Councilman Marks. “This store will not support more than 140 jobs in northeastern Baltimore County, but it will greatly advance our vision for an improved Belair Road corridor in this area.”
The Weis Markets store will anchor a renovation of the entire Fullerton Plaza, which is owned by Kimco Realty.
In addition to exterior improvements, landscaping will be placed throughout the shopping center, one of the oldest in the region.
Baltimore County Councilman David Marks reported Thursday on the progress of the Fullerton Plaza renovations, announcing that the Weis Market and fuel facility are on track to open in the spring of 2018.
Facade improvements throughout the rest of the shopping center will be complete by March.
Weis will occupy the area that was formerly a K-Mart store. The supermarket will have features not found in other Weis locations, including a 1,000-item produce department, a deli and café, an in-store sushi counter, and a full-service pharmacy.
In addition to facade improvements, landscaping will be added throughout the parking area.
Built in the 1970s, the shopping center is located at the Baltimore Beltway and Belair Road.
“When I met with community leaders from the South Perry Hall and Rossville areas, they were enthusiastic about the thought of renovating this aging shopping center,” Councilman Marks commented. “I would like to thank Kimco Realty for keeping me informed, and also want to again salute the improvements they did to protect the Stemmers Run stream behind the shopping center.”
A popular Belair Road shopping center will soon be renovated – and a new grocery store will anchor the strip.
Kimco Realty will initiate a renovation of the Fullerton Plaza shopping center, replacing the vacant K-Mart space with a new Weis Market supermarket, and improving the overall aesthetics of the center.
Baltimore County Councilman David Marks says the renovation will also include rehabilitation to the aging facade of the shopping center, and major landscaping improvements, including the planting of trees throughout the parking area.
The Weis Markets’ store will feature a 1,000-item produce department with a wide selection of organic items, an expansive deli-food service section with a café, service meat and seafood, in-store made sushi, a full-service pharmacy, and a fuel center.
Work is expected to start in spring 2017 and be completed by the end of the year. The Weis is expected to be open late 2017.
Fullerton Plaza is has been a staple of the Belair Road corridor for many years. Built in the 1970s, the shopping center is located at the Baltimore Beltway and Belair Road.
