A redevelopment plan that includes pedestrian paths, gardens, interconnected shopping centers and a Wal-Mart at the site of the Golden Mile’s Frederick Towne Mall is a step closer to reality. The property’s owner said Wednesday at the board’s workshop that the city will have to rezone the site at 1301 W. Patrick St. to general commercial zoning if it wants to see that redevelopment plan — or anything better — start at the vacant mall. The Board of Aldermen found more tweaks they would like to see to the proposal, all in an effort, they said, to get closer to their ideal vision for the area’s redevelopment.
