OWINGS MILLS, Md. - The Baltimore County Council has voted to allow retail at the former Solo Cup plant in Owings Mills.
The council approved a zoning change for the site Tuesday that will allow Baltimore developer Greenberg Gibbons to build a 415,000-square-foot retail and office project anchored by a Wegmans supermarket at Painters Mill and Reisterstown roads. The proposed $140 million shopping center will be called Foundry Row.
Opponents of the project, who have pointed to traffic worries, say they will seek to collect the 28,000 signatures needed to trigger a voter referendum.
Gibbons said Foundry Row is expected to open by March 2015. He says the proposed shopping center is already 72 percent leased.
