Progress for Howard Park
ayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake joined Congressman Elijah Cummings, Baltimore City Council President Bernard âJackâ Young, elected officials, representatives of Liberty Heights Shopping Center, LLC, and residents of the Howard Park community for a demolition at the future location of a state-of-the-art, full-service ShopRite supermarket on Liberty Heights Avenue in Northwest Baltimore.
Last month, the Baltimore Development Corporation (BDC), acting on behalf of the City of Baltimore, obtained Board of Estimates approval for an agreement with Liberty Heights Shopping Center, LLC to develop a 67,250 sq. ft. Class A supermarket with over 200 parking spaces. ShopRite of Liberty Heights will include a pharmacy, a health suite staffed by a nurse practitioner, a bakery, an extensive seafood section, and a halal butcher to serve the growing Muslim population in the Howard Park community. The store will also employ a full-time community relations coordinator. Project costs are estimated at $18 million (including store equipment).
âFor too long, people in this community had to take long trips to get the basic ingredients they need to cook a healthy meal at homeâ”soon they will have everything they need in their own backyard,â said Mayor Rawlings-Blake. âI want to thank residents for working in partnership with the City to develop a plan to bring new jobs and economic opportunity to Howard Park.âhttp://dmvblogspot.bloggieblog.com/4365/4365.html
