Baltimore’s historic Edmondson Village Shopping Center can be saved, developer says

February 16, 2023

Over the last year, I’ve heard hundreds of stories about the former greatness of Edmondson Village Shopping Center (EVSC). Developed by Jacob and Joseph Meyerhoff in 1947, the center was described by The Baltimore Sun as “a suburban shopping center of harmonious design, said to be unique in American city planning.” It was also innovative in giving design control to surrounding tenants and property owners. Sadly, many more residents report that they no longer shop there and prefer to spend their money at other retailers in Baltimore County. Social media influencers have shared posts and videos that joke about EVSC and warn their followers not to stop at a nearby gas station because it’s dangerous.
