Middletown hoping to revitalize Towne Mall Galleria
19 Nov 2020
Middletown is looking to help the California investment group that owns the Towne Mall Galleria in developing a new master plan for the 43-year-old facility at the city’s front door off Interstate 75.
Last week, Middletown City Council approved an emergency ordinance to develop a plan and to partner with mall owner George Ragheb and the Warren County Port Authority to better utilize the 31-acre site.
City Manager Jim Palenick recommended council approve hiring Milwaukee, Wis.-based RINKA Architecture to provide a detailed, two-phase master redevelopment planning process for the redevelopment of the mall as a mixed-use town center.
