CARNEY, MD—Federal Realty Investment Trust plans to invest approximately $5 million to upgrade and improve Perring Plaza in Carney. The enhancements at the 396,000-square-foot E. Joppa Road shopping center include a new façade, additional landscaping and new signage.
“This renovation will give a facelift to one of our most important and active shopping centers along the Joppa Road corridor,” said Baltimore County Councilman David Marks. “I am delighted by the improvements at this commercial center and would like to thank Federal for its efforts in making Perring Plaza even more exceptional.”
The grocery-anchored power center, acquired by Federal in 1985, offers easy access and great visibility along the Baltimore Beltway as well as numerous retailers and amenities. Its large national and regional retailers include Mama Lucia’s, Crazy Crab Shack, Shoppers Food, Micro Center, Home Depot, and Burlington Coat Factory, among others.
“The Joppa Road corridor is flourishing, and we want to provide our patrons with a superior experience that reflects the quality of our merchants,” said Mickey Papillon, Vice President of Federal. “By investing in the property and modernizing, we will further reinforce Perring Plaza as a destination where the greater-Baltimore community is welcomed to shop, gather and dine.”
The upgrades and enhancements began in March and will be complete in November 2021.
