September 03, 2010 | Maryland | Posted by Prange Way Frederick, Maryland is an outlying anchor city of the Baltimore-Washington Metropolitan Area.
After all the problems, mall owners were quick to react to the situation, and put together plans to renovate the mall into a mixed-use lifestyle center in 2005.
Violent crime surrounded the area of Towne Mall, and frequent fights began to break out in the mall itself.
These events became well publicized in the media, and locals began reallocating their dollars to the safer retail district across town, near Francis Scott Key Mall. The creek behind the mall is prone to flooding, and a significant portion of the mall is within the 100-year floodplain.
As a result, having two malls in Frederick proved to be two too many.
So which mall would Frederick choose to support, and which mall would be thrown in the trash?
