Hekemian & Co., owner of the Rotunda mall in Hampden, has named the Greenbelt, Md.-based Bozzuto Group as general contractor for the Rotunda’s upcoming redevelopment. According to local land use consultant Al Barry, who works for Hekemian, the choice of Bozzuto and the “imminent” selection of a grocery store will open the way for construction to begin as soon as mid-September, 2013.
In the past few years, the Bozzuto Group has successfully completed a number of major construction projects in Baltimore, including the Fitzgerald, a luxury apartment building adjacent to the Lyric Opera House and the Union Wharf in Fells Point, a high-end mixed-used development on Wolfe Street.
Plans for the redesign of the Rotunda (approved in February of this year) include 382 residential units, 182,000 sq. ft. of retail space and 153,00 sq. ft. of office space, as well as parking for 1,100. Target date for completion has been given as summer 2015.
