Per the Office of Senator Craig Zucker: Today, the State Board of Public Works released $3.5 million in funding dedicated to the redevelopment of Burtonsville Crossing Shopping Center. The District 14 Legislative Delegation, consisting of Senator Craig J. Zucker, Delegates Anne Kaiser, Bernice Mireku-North, and Pamela Queen, requested that the funding be secured after hearing the community’s visions for the future of the space. The team appreciates the Board of Public Works’ decision to release the funds, allowing renovations to begin.
“We are very pleased with today’s Board of Public Works vote to release the $3.5 million in funding for this project, said Senator Zucker and Delegates Kaiser, Mireku-North, and Queen. “East County is a diverse area, and this funding represents the beginning of a more significant commitment from the District 14 team, the State of Maryland, and Montgomery County, are going to put into this project. The people of Burtonsville and East County deserve a world-class shopping center, and we are glad we helped make this a reality.”
“I join the residents of Burtonsville in their excitement for the new Burtonsville Crossing Shopping Center,” said County Executive Marc Elrich. “Soon, a Sprouts grocery store, a TJ Maxx, and Domain Fitness & Performance will anchor a beautifully renovated shopping center that has remained vacant for far too long. The success of the Burtonsville Shopping Center is due to a successful partnership between state leaders, the County government, community members, and EDENS. The 3.5 million approved today is a critical piece, and I want to thank the Maryland Board of Public Works, consisting of Governor Moore, Comptroller Lierman, and Treasurer Davis, for their approval. I look forward to continuing to work with Senator Zucker and Delegates Kaiser, Mireku-North, and Queen as we further invest in the growth and prosperity of the Burtonsville community.”
“For decades, Burtonsville Crossing has been an important part of this community, serving as a well-loved gathering place. We are excited to bring this shopping center back to life and thankful to Senator Zucker and the entire District 14 delegation, as well as Montgomery County, for the enthusiastic support we have received in order to make this redevelopment a reality,” said EDENS Managing Director David Germakian.
Renovations to Burtonsville Shopping Center have already begun and are expected to be completed in 2024.
