Former Mondawmin Target makes way for redevelopment, new community hub
What was once a Target store in west Baltimore will become a community hub to be called The Village at Mondawmin.
Crews on Thursday began to raze the facade of the building to make way for a revitalization plan that will include medical and social services for older adults, health care-related services, workforce development opportunities and child care services, according to a statement.
“Now, we are going to see a space that’s going to expand Mondawmin’s impact on Baltimore City,” Mayor Brandon Scott said.
The community hub will also host a green space with seating and Black-owned and operated shops.
“(It will be a) space where entrepreneurs can set up shop, a senior and social services center, workforce training, a call center and so much more coming right here to Mondawmin,” Scott said.
Tim Regan, the president and CEO of the Whiting-Turner Contracting Co., bought the more than 120,000-square-foot building 8.3-acre site in March. The site has been vacant since 2018 after Target closed.
