Presbyterian Home announces sale; condos likely – Towson Flyer

The Presbyterian Home of Maryland said today it has found a buyer for its historic property in Towson’s Southland Hills neighborhood. The buyers are Martin P. Azola, a developer known for adaptive reuse of historic buildings, and Delbert L. Adams, head of the high-end construction firm Delbert Adams Construction Group.

Azola said in an interview Wednesday that the pair, working as Bosley Estates, LLC, are still in the fact-finding stage but their initial plan is to convert the properties into condominiums. The exact number is still up in the air, he said, but they are hoping to have up to 40 units. He said the building might not accommodate that number, though, and that it is currently zoned for up to 28 units.

“The mansion has been worked over, over its lifetime and it’s not pristine but we would certainly restore the exterior. There are some glaring things need to be changed; we desperately want to take the cell tower off the roof,” Azola said. “But basically the exterior would stay as it is and the interior would be changed.”

He said the extensive lawn would have improved landscaping and will likely remain open space that nearby residents can utilize.

Meeting on proposed Royal Farms in Towson draws standing-room-only crowd – Baltimore Sun

Towson residents showed up in force Monday night to voice their opinions on a Royal Farms gas station a local developer has proposed building at the corner of Bosley Avenue and York Road.

More than 200 people showed at a community input meeting hosted by the developer, the Towson-based Caves Valley Partners.

Caves Valley has an agreement with Baltimore County to purchase and redevelop the roughly six-acre property from the county in a project that has met with opposition.

The parcel, which is the site of a former county fire station and public works facility, would become a 24-hour Royal Farms gas station and convenience store under a plan proposed by Caves Valley. The development also would include two one-story retail buildings.

Residents opposed to the project say a gas station would bring an increase in unwanted traffic, pour light into neighbors’ homes, cause pollution and increase crime.

Nearly 200 residents protest proposed Royal Farms at busy Towson intersection | WBFF

TOWSON, Md. (WBFF) – Nearly 200 residents turned out to voice their concerns about a proposed Royal Farms store at a busy intersection in Towson.

The county council has given its approval to the project at York Road and Bosley Avenue, which area residents call Towson Gateway.

Attorneys for Caves Valley Partners, the Towson-based developers, explained details of the project to citizens during a meeting Monday evening.

Attorney Christopher Mudd says plans for 16 gas pumps have been reduced to 12 pumps. But some residents say the proposed project will still cause extra congestion.

Angela Dean, who attended the meeting, said: “There’s such issues at Bosley and Joppa Road, as well as York and Bosley, and with a gas station there, it’s going to back up traffic.”

Caves Valley Partners Attorney Christopher Mudd told the crowd: “We understand that a lot of folks here feel differently about it, but we think we’ve out together a design that’s cohesive, between the Royal Farms and the retail that’s behind it.”

Stoneleigh residents optimistic about county plans to relieve flooding – Baltimore Sun

After the first two storms, John Gramiccioni knew the severe flooding in front of his Kingston Road home, in Stoneleigh, was no fluke.

In the past, rain had caused some overflow in the Towson community, he said, but nothing like the knee-high deluges that started becoming a regular occurrence in 2015.

Kingston Road flooded five times that summer, as aging and overburdened storm drains overflowed and dumped water into a dip in Kingston Road, and into neighbors’ driveways, yards and basements, Gramiccioni said.

Gramiccioni installed a $6,000 drainage system on his property to protect it from flooding. His neighbor, Hildegard Trapnell, said she spent $12,000 to refinish a flooded basement after water seeped in, soiled the carpet and damaged her knotty pine walls.

“People just can’t keep putting money into repairs because of the inadequate drainage systems we have in this community,” Gramiccioni said.

Now, after Stoneleigh residents spent more than two years negotiating with county officials for some relief, County Executive Kevin Kamenetz is proposing to spend $1 million in the coming fiscal year toward the preliminary design of a plan to end the flooding, though actual relief could be years away.
