Developers for the proposed student housing project on York Road have planned an additional two stories to accommodate the new total of 495 parking spaces and 611 beds at the site.
Originally, the project proposed 367 parking spaces and 571 beds.
A parking study completed by Chance Management Advisors, an independent parking, transportation and access management consulting company, determined that not only does the 101 York Road project provide more parking spaces than are required by the Baltimore County Zoning Regulations, but more than will be necessary for the expected student population and commercial use.

The Towson area will benefit from a new turf field at Towson High, additional police officers in downtown Towson and area school construction projects as part of the county’s fiscal year 2015 budget, County Executive Kevin Kamenetz announced Tuesday.
“This budget helps address two of the most consistent concerns I hear about Towson’s growth — public safety and the need to preserve and improve green space,” Councilman David Marks, who represents the 5th District, including Towson, said in a statement.
The artificial turf field is part of a $2 million budget item for fields at Towson High as well as Dundalk High and the new Catonsville Regional Park at Spring Grove State Hospital. The cost for the Towson High field specifically was not given.

York Road is the main thoroughfare in downtown Towson and those commuters who travel it on a daily basis know the congestion around the intersection of York and Burke Avenue during rush hour.
The crossroads has been deemed by the county as a failing intersection, meaning congestion is a critical issue because the crossroads cannot handle the amount of vehicles it sees at a given time.
However, Baltimore County officials say the stretch of York Road just north of Burke Avenue is exempt from a development moratorium in place near failing intersections — according to its annual Basic Services Map, which designates infrastructure and traffic needs across the county.
