Towson Town Center


Towson Town Center

.

The third and fourth floors were built in 1992. While the third and fourth floors are directly above each other, access to floors three, two, and one, respectively, are in a downhill pattern, as entire mall property is on a slope.

At opposite ends of the mall are two department stores, Macy's (formerly Hecht's) and Nordstrom. The Macy's is located on the top two floors, while the Nordstrom occupies all four floors (including Nordstrom Rack on the first floor).

The mall also features a food court on the third floor, a Rainforest Cafe on the second floor, and a T.G.I. Friday's on the first floor.

A large parking garage is connected directly to the mall structure. A popular area high school teacher was murdered on one of the garage's upper levels in 2004, leading some to worry that the crime in inner-city Baltimore was gaining a stronger foothold in the suburbs. After the murder, several reports of mugging as well as muggers with guns lead to several security upgrades with many firsts in mall security. [cite news

Location

Towson Town Center is located at the intersection of York Road, Dulaney Valley Road, and Joppa Road and is also bordered in the north by Fairmount Avenue. It can be accessed from the Baltimore Beltway by taking exit 27 and heading south.

The mall is very close to Goucher College, Towson University, the Towson Sheraton hotel, and the Towson library.

Public bus service to the mall is available on Routes 3, 8, 11, and 55, operated by the Maryland Transit Administration. The Collegetown Network, a joint venture of many higher-education institutions in and around Baltimore, also operates a shuttle service that transports many students to and from the mall.
