Harford County Continues to Grow Retail Offerings

MacKenzie Retail, LLC is pleased to announce the recent sale of an approximate five acre site situated just north of the intersection of Forest Valley Drive and Route 24 in Forest Hill, Harford County, Maryland.  MacKenzie Executive Vice President Tom Fidler represented the seller and MacKenzie Vice President Sean Langford represented the buyer.

Known as Forest Hill Center, the site is being developed to support an approximate 18,000 square feet of community-based retail and food uses in response to growing market demand.  MacKenzie Retail has already signed leases with Royal Farms for approximately 1.5 acres of the site and Choice One Urgent Care, an affiliate of the University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Health Center.  The Royal Farms will feature both gas and car wash components.

“The retail amenities of Forest Hill are unable to compete with the offerings of the neighboring Bel Air market.  Although not far, residents are traveling to outside areas for convenience items and quick-service retail offerings,” stated Langford.  “Forest Hill Center will both compliment and support these demands, enhancing the offerings of the Forest Hill market.”

Currently under construction, the buildings will be ready for occupancy late summer 2017.  The MacKenzie team of Sean Langford, John Harrington, and John Schultz will be representing the leasing efforts on behalf of the owner.  There is approximately 8,500 square feet available for lease.
