The details are still being worked out, but if all goes according to plan, the old police station in downtown Towson will be converted into eight apartments next year.
Ernie Rafailides of Bayview Management is one of the principles of the LLC that owns the property. He said permits have not been obtained yet — though apartments are allowed per zoning regulations — and that the financing has not been nailed down yet. “We’re about 80 percent there,” he said.
The site at 308 Washington Ave., which is just around the corner from the post office, had been announced as the future home of a Full Tilt brew pub, but that plan fizzled and Full Tilt is now moving into B-more Kitchen, a food incubator in Waverly.
Rafailides said the apartments will have tall ceilings and fit in with the high-end Towson market. There is no parking on site but he’s hoping to have a lease agreement with the garage next door.
The two apartments at street level, he said, will have two levels and will have a townhouse feel.
“It will be really cool,” he said.
If there are no hiccups along the way, he’s hoping to start construction in early 2018 and be done by the spring.
