Former Target in Mondawmin Mall to be redeveloped as community center
More than three years since it closed in late 2017, the former Target in Mondawmin Mall will soon be given new life by Whiting-Turner president and CEO Timothy Regan, who officially purchased the building for $1 million on Tuesday.
Regan is a longtime supporter of the Mondawmin community, which is composed of eight West Baltimore neighborhoods, having previously co-founded TouchPoint Baltimore, a community center in the Mondawmin Mall. The facility houses two local nonprofits: Thread, which coaches and supports high-need high school students, and Baltimore Corps, which works to advance social innovation in the city. It also partners with the nearby Center For Urban Families.
Regan founded TouchPoint alongside Exelon Senior Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Calvin Butler in 2015.
Plans for the new facility, which will be called the TouchPoint Empowerment Center, have not yet been decided; Regan plans to work with Greater Mondawmin Coordinating Council, a group of eight individuals who represent each of the neighborhoods that make up Mondawmin, to decide what the 127,000-square-foot space will be used for.
