Local developer Greenberg Gibbons Commercial plans a “major refurbishment’ of The Shops at Kenilworth after purchasing a stake in the Towson mall last month, the firm’s CEO said.
With its location just off the Interstate 695 Beltway between Charles Street and York Road, extensive free parking and an upscale clientele for its some 30 stores, Brian Gibbons, CEO and chairman of the board at Greenberg Gibbons, calls the mall a “hidden gem.”
“I look at Kenilworth as a specialty center as opposed to a mall. We can make it really special. It’s got a lot of history,” Gibbons said. “Towson is a challenge with traffic and parking. We want this to be a treasure with great parking that’s an easy in-and-out.”
Over the next six to eight months, plans will be developed to improve Kenilworth, Gibbons said.

The word “really” in the phrase “really special” makes me uncomfortable. Does Greenberg Gibbons have a history of doing that well? If their Annapolis effort is any indication, I’m concerned.
