ANNAPOLIS — A significant transformation is underway at Annapolis Town Center, the 659,158-square-foot outdoor mixed-use center in Annapolis.
During the past 16 months, the property has seen a number of strategic enhancements designed to add vitality and improve customer experience.
Among the changes are new community gathering areas with comfortable seating and fire pits, as well as the addition of murals by local artists throughout the center.
In addition to aesthetic improvements, the property also launched new event programming throughout 2019, including Fall Fest, Fire & Ice and Santa’s Cottage.
On the leasing front, new stores and restaurants are expanding to the already unique tenant mix. Home furnishings retailer Z Gallerie opened in January, and a new marquee restaurant — True Food Kitchen — will open later this year.
“Our new signature events and community-focused amenities have resulted in higher foot traffic to the property, attracting new brands excited about the property’s growing success,” said Anthony Henry, Annapolis Town Center general manager. “It is our goal to create a variety of offerings and experiences that today’s consumer wants, whether it be through art, entertainment, dining or commerce. We have a lot in store for 2020 with new events planned and new businesses joining us. We are ready for a great year, and this is just the beginning.”
Annapolis Town Center’s evolution is led by retail and mixed-use development, investment and institutional services firm, Trademark Property Company, which was hired to manage and reposition the property in October 2018. Since then, Trademark has spent time listening to the market as part of a visioning process that brings together experts in retail, design and placemaking to develop a strategic plan and vision for the property’s future. Repositioning efforts will continue with additional enhancements, leasing efforts and community-centric experiences in the coming months.
