The former Frederick Towne Mall site along Route 40 is about to see new life.
After successfully anchoring Frederick's "Golden Mile" for nearly 30 years, the iconic mall fell into decline in the early 2000's due to changing trends in retail and the loss of several major national anchors. Though tenanted on either end by Boscov's and Home Depot, 560,000 SF of the building's interior has sat vacant since the mall's closure in 2013. Following several proposed redevelopment plans - including the relocation of a Walmart Superstore - the site was purchased in February of 2017 by local urologist Mohammed Mohiuddin with the new intention of re-tenanting the original structure.
Just this week, the first new tenant was signed at the renamed "West Frederick Center." Warehouse Cinemas has executed a lease for 40,000 SF in the space once operated by Hoyts Cinema.
Warehouse Cinema will bring a new movie viewing experience to Frederick - featuring modern-industrial style decor, a unique menu and tap house, and a wide range of ticket prices. “We are very excited to see Warehouse Cinema sign a lease for space at the West Frederick Center. The unique experience that Warehouse Cinema offers will play a major role in drawing new foot traffic to the area, reinvigorating the Center, and creating a new destination on Frederick’s west side.” commented Mayor Michael O'Connor.

West Frederick Center's owners are currently showing and negotiating the division/leasing of the remaining interior spaces of the mall. Contact information for those interested in leasing space can be found here.
