The Honeygo Crossing shopping center, between Schroeder Avenue and Honeygo Boulevard along Belair Road, was finished about four years ago—although Baltimore County approved the center's first occupancy permits just six months ago.

In the first week of August, the center plans to welcome its first tenant, , which is moving from its 11-year home at on Ebenezer Road. The salon's sign was mounted this week.

Frederick said he has spoken with owners of other Perry Hall Square businesses who are also considering a move to Honeygo Crossing.

Shear Genius' lease at Perry Hall Square runs out on July 31. All 15 salon stylists are expected to move to the new Belair Road location, Lesko said.

"A couple of our clients who walk say they might have to drive now," she said. "But we also have a lot of clients in Harford County and Kingsville who are happy about it."

"It's a great location," Lesko said.

The problem with the square is that it off the track of perry hall. With the honeygo extension people dont need to drive by. Also the owner hasnt done anything to the property for years. I think the last thing they did was change the parking. If i were to invest, i would goto a new building to "build to suite". when you walk into an old building you have to deal with the other people problems.

Put the right business and people will come. If I can go into the zoo that is Towson to go to Trader Joe's and fight for parking. I truly feel that in an area that can support the parking people will flock.

The problem, as Councilman Marks mentioned today, is that the people at Trader Joe's and Wegman's KNOW you will travel distances to go there. Diana (not specifically), you are exactly why they don't put one here. Perry Hall is kinda screwed in a sense (I always wondered this until today) as places get built in White Marsh, Towson, and Bel Air. We're basically in the middle of these, so we get jack squat.
