In December 2012, Councilman Marks formed a committee of business and community leaders to study potential projects for the Towson Triangle. The Towson Triangle consists of the properties that border the American Legion property along Burke Avenue, York Road and Towsontown Boulevard. The Triangle Committee was established and our task was to review proposals for redevelopment especially along the deteriorating York Road stretch of the triangle area.
One of the potential projects we were asked to study was 101 York near the corner of York and Burke. DMS, a developer who has never built student housing wants to build an oversize 611-bed, 15 story dormitory complex on this small parcel. It is not allowed under the county zoning on this property.
