St John Properties is planning a retail area in Aberdeen to add to their Government and Technology Enterprise already located in Aberdeen Proving Ground. The retail complex is planned to be called “Village at the GATE” according to the Baltimore Business Journal. The complex could be comprised of as many as nine buildings.

St John maintains and services tenants in many commercial buildings around the Baltimore area.

The goal of the development is to service the many BRAC transferees coming into the area, many from the Fort Monmouth, NJ base in the next few years. Plans include the possibility of up to five restaurants, maybe a hotel, a daycare, two banks, and a conference center.

The new Aberdeen complex would service both those who work at APG and the many Harford County residents who live near the area.
