More businesses have been setting up shop in Perry Hall Square, where the occupancy rate has been climbing steadily, Baltimore County Councilman David Marks announced Wednesday.

Three years ago, the shopping center off Ebenezer Road was 60 percent filled, according to the councilman.

Now, Perry Hall Square owner Kimco Realty reports it is 88 percent occupied, according to Marks. 

The newest tenant, Kumon, moved into a 2,660-square-foot space near Brunswick Perry Hall Lanes. The math and reading center opened on May 23, Marks said. 

The shopping center has benefited in recent years from a business revitalization district designation that Marks championed. In addition, there has been a turnaround at Perry Hall Square since Giant Food opened in 2012.

“Over the past three years, we have had numerous meetings with Kimco Realty to see what we can do to spur redevelopment of this shopping center, the oldest in Perry Hall,” Marks said.  “I am pleased that this shopping center is nearly fully leased, and I look forward to further improvements."

Specifically, Marks said that he would like to see modifications to enhance the look of the shopping center.

It's quite evident that David Marks stands head and shoulders above his predecessor when it comes to community improvement. In fact, he surpasses him in every phase of the job. He's a worker for his constituents and I'm damn glad to have him as my county delegate.. Hugh McKenna

I must agree that I was not a big supporter of David when he first came to his position, but I am liking him more and more. If this shopping center went belly up, it would not be looking to good for Perry Hall. Once a large shopping strip center "blanks" out... no one wants to consider leasing a store there and it dies. Its hard to bring dead shopping space back. Hopefully, Perry Hall as a whole in that area can revive to something like the Belair Rd Shopping Plaza has. That place was a dump 10 years ago and now it is booming with cool places to shop and eat.
