The Centre at Glen Burnie is a regional partially enclosed shopping mall located in Glen Burnie, Maryland. Anchor Stores are: Toys-R-Us, Target, H.H Gregg, And Office Depot. The Centre currently has 20 stores and 4 anchors on 1 floor. It will be demolished later in 2017 to make way for a new movie theater, bowling alley, and health club. It is owned by Goodman Properties and managed by [[6711 GLEN BURNIE RETAIL LLC, a subsidiary of LNR Property LLC. ]].


The center opened in 1963 as the Glen Burnie Mall, the third shopping mall developed by Edward J. DeBartolo, Sr..[2] At the time of its opening it had Montgomery Ward as an anchor as well as an A&P grocery store, a G.C. Murphy variety store and a single-screen movie theater. The mall's second anchor, a Topps Discount City (a division of Interstate Department Stores) was dedicated in March 1969. This store was shuttered in late 1974. Toys "R" Us (another Interstate division) opened a store in the Topps space, as did Baltimore-based Epstein's department store.[2] Today that space is occupied by Toys "R" Us, Office Depot, and hhgregg.

A fire damaged the north end of the mall on October 24, 1981. The center, except for Montgomery Ward, was closed while renovations could be completed. The shopping center re-opened in November 1982.[2]

Montgomery Ward went out of business in 2000. In 2002, the mall was sold to Petrie Ventures, which announced plans to tear down the vacant Wards store and built a new Target discount store.[3] The mall also underwent extensive renovations that added outward-facing retail bays. In 2005, the mall was renamed the Centre at Glen Burnie. In 2012, Jones Lang LaSalle was named leasing agent and manager of the center.[4]

The property was transferred on March 14, 2016 from the legal entity BACM 2006-5 Ritchie Highway LLC to one known as 6711 Glen Burnie Retail LLC for a book amount of $15M. [5] Both LLC's are, in turn, ultimately owned by Starwood Property Trust LLC in Greenwich, CT.[6] Starwood owns the property through its $1.05 billion acquisition of LNR Property LLC and its subsidiary LNR Partners LLC of Miami, FL in 2013.[7]

In December 2016, 5 stores left the mall including one of the anchors Famous Footwear. On December 31, 2017 the mall will close to make way for a new movie theater, bowling alley, and health club.
