BALTIMORE — A Baltimore neighborhood's town center is getting a face-lift.

On Monday, officials held a groundbreaking ceremony for the 70-year-old Cherry Hill Town Center.

The new center will bring retail options, entrepreneur opportunities, fresh food and healthy cooking education and the community's first-ever bank.

"What makes me so excited about what we're about to do here is the number of young people that will be walking back and forth across Cherry Hill Road, coming up and down between the schools and everyday looking at a shopping center and a place of gathering where people come together and build themselves and say 'yeah I deserve that,'" said Baltimore Mayor Jack Young. "That's what this investment represents."

The center's food court will also be renovated into a gathering and meeting space.
