Eastpoint Mall, in southeast Baltimore County, is being sold at auction on May 29, the auctioneer announced.

Tidewater Auctions LLC will conduct the foreclosure sale at 11 a.m. in front of the Bosley Avenue entrance of the Baltimore County Circuit Court in Towson.

The auction is the result of a lender's lawsuit against Thor Equities LLC, the New York-based investment firm that bought the mall in 2006.

There is 850,000 square feet of leasable space in the shopping center, situated on a 67-acre parcel between Eastern Avenue and North Point Boulevard. A $1 million deposit will be required at the time of sale.

The mall was built in 1956 as an open-air shopping center, enclosed in 1972 and renovated in 1991 and 2005. J.C. Penney, Sears and Value City Furniture are among the mall's anchor stores.
