New 200-Apartment Development Proposed At The AVENUE In White Marsh: Community Input Meeting Scheduled
PERRY HALL - A new housing project proposing the construction of 200 apartments has been announced at The AVENUE in White Marsh. This news comes just a few months after a similar plan for an apartment complex faced significant backlash from local residents.
Named "The Avenue at White Marsh Apartments," the new development is planned for a site at 4921 Campbell Boulevard (21236), according to the Department of Permits, Approvals, and Inspections.
To discuss the project in detail, Baltimore County has planned a Community Input Meeting for July 18, 2023. The meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. at the Community Christian Church (8009 Corporate Drive in Nottingham, 21236).
More information about the proposed project can be accessed online here.
In late 2022, community input meetings were held over another proposed apartment project involving 516 units near the White Marsh Mall. The community response was largely negative, with primary concerns focusing on potential increases in traffic and pressure on local schools due to overcapacity.
Peggy Winchester, the President of the South Perry Hall Blvd Improvement Association, emphasized the already problematic congestion on Honeygo Boulevard and cautioned that further apartment developments could worsen the issue.
"Our worries revolve around the traffic situation. Post 4:00 p.m., it takes about half an hour to cover a five-block distance on Honeygo Boulevard. Adding to that, any high school-going kid is left to attend an already 110% overcrowded school," Winchester said.
