Regency Looking for Input On New Shopping Center Tenants

Parkville Shopping Center is undergoing a renovation and Regency Centers, the company that owns the center, is using the crowdsourcing website Popularise to get input on new tenants.

What would you build here?

That's the question Regency Centers is asking Parkvillians about Parkville Shopping Center.

The property management company is using the crowdsourcing website Popularise to solicit ideas from the people who shop at Parkville Shopping Center. So far, about ten people have jumped into the discussion, talking about what businesses would be a good fit for the neighborhood.

More than one user has suggested a pet store, while others are locked in a debate about whether or not the center should have more chain retailers and restaurants.

The crowdsourcing initiative is part of a $1.7 million dollar renovation underway at the shopping center.

"Given the center's location inside the Beltway just outside of Baltimore, leasing has never been an issue with 95 percent average occupancy over the last five years. But as we invest in this neighborhood ... we want to ensure the creation of a shopping environment that the local residents are very proud of, which includes their input on store selection," wrote Alan Roth, a senior market officer for Regency, in a press release.

In November, when the renovation is scheduled to be complete, the center will feature new exterior fa├žade and architectural elements, upgraded signage, improved landscaping and parking lot enhancements.

What would you like to see occupy the remaining spaces at Parkville Shopping Center? Tell us in the comments and head over to Popularise to let Regency Centers know.

I would love to see a Panera there and a really nice decent seafood/steaks restaurant--not just a carry out.

I'm glad they're planning to update the parking lot, it needs to be improved.

A kids birthday party venue or bouncy place. Trader Joes or Baja Fresh
