Arundel Mills
Arundel Mills is a mall located in Hanover, Maryland (south of Baltimore, near BWI Airport) and is now owned by Simon Property Group. With its 1,300,000 sq ft (121,000 m 2) GLA, it was the largest mall in Maryland, until the Westfield Annapolis Mall surpassed it with its 2007 expansion. The mall is located at the intersection of Maryland Route 100 and the Baltimore-Washington Parkway ( Maryland Route 295) in northwestern Anne Arundel County (hence the name "Arundel" Mills). Arundel Mills opened in November 2000. It is the first enclosed mall to feature a Medieval Times dinner theater. In addition to 17 large anchor stores, Arundel Mills also features a Dave & Buster's and an Egyptian-themed 24-screen megaplex theater. The movie theater is the highest-attended in the United States and was the only outlet of its Muvico chain in the state of Maryland before being sold to Cinemark in March 2009. The theater is one of only two in Maryland that utilize the Dolby Digital Cinema technology for showing digitally formatted movies. The mall's interior layout features a "racetrack" design or, more noticeably, the outline of a boat. Mall sponsors are Toyota, The Baltimore Sun , Comcast, Discover Card, and Coca-Cola. Arundel Mills has over 225 stores.

Casino
After Maryland voters approved slot machine gambling in Maryland in 2008, the Cordish Cos. has planned a slots parlor next to the mall. Although not directly connected to the mall, the casino will be within walking distance of the food court entrance. Parking garages will be constructed to replace the lost parking areas on the west side of the mall. The proposal for slots at Arundel Mills was on the ballot as a referendum in the November 2010 elections. Cordish is erecting a tempory casino on the mall grounds to be ready by the end of 2011. A permanent facility for the casino is expected to open by the end of 2012.
