Downzoning means no apartments for newly available Towson site

A one-acre, nearly empty parcel of land owned by Baltimore City that’s located in Towson just east of Radebaugh Florist is going up for sale, according to the Baltimore Business Journal.

But County Councilman David Marks said that nearby residents should not worry that the site will become home to more dense development.

“In 2012, our office downzoned this property to DR 1 to prevent overdevelopment in the event it was ever sold by Baltimore City,” Marks said. “The new zoning classification prevents more apartments from being built here, in an area already saturated with these units.”

Under the revised zoning, no more than one home can be built on the site, Marks said.
