The Baltimore County Council will consider a proposal tonight to amend the county’s zoning regulations to allow a developer to build a multiuse transit-oriented development in the Owings Mills area that would include new housing and commercial services.
The project would include 232 one- and two-bedroom apartments built above retail space along Grand Central Avenue. The project would also include elderly housing and assisted living facilities.
Council member Julian Jones, Jr., said the development calls for sky rise buildings. He said it would create a better tax base and 100 more jobs for the downtown part of Owings Mills.
When the transit-oriented development is completed it will support more than 1.2- million-square-feet of commercial office space; 300,000-square-feet of retail space, 1,700 residential units, educational facilities totaling 120,000 square feet and a hospitality component offering up to 250 rooms.
