New 330-Unit Apartment Development Proposed Near White Marsh Mall
PERRY HALL - The White Marsh community is bracing itself for yet another proposed large-scale apartment development - the third of its kind in less than a year. A Towson-based engineering firm has filed plans for a new 330-unit apartment complex at 8020 Sandpiper Circle near the White Marsh Mall.
The project aims to offer 330 multi-family units, including 173 one-bedroom, 141 two-bedroom, and 16 three-bedroom apartments. The 10.96-acre lot is currently zoned as light industrial (ML), and the application does not include plans for elderly housing, assisted living, or condominiums.
The owner behind this venture is White Marsh Acquisition I LLC, based in Bethesda, MD. According to property records, the parcel allocated for the project covers 7.21 acres and has an estimated land value of $2,511,000 and an improved value of $4,241,900.
This announcement follows closely on the heels of another proposed housing project in June, which suggested constructing 200 apartments at The AVENUE in White Marsh. An additional 516-unit project was proposed in late 2022.
Baltimore County Councilman David Marks has steadfastly opposed the ongoing development of the White Marsh area. In an email, the council member clarified his position on proposed developments in the region.
"I want to make it very clear—I oppose making the White Marsh Town Center a sea of apartments," Marks wrote.
The councilman stated his intentions to use the rezoning process, which commences this summer, to potentially halt the widespread apartment projects across the White Marsh Town Center.
"You have my word I will do all I can to ensure that any new housing is as limited as possible and reflects good planning principles that enhance the White Marsh Town Center," Marks wrote.
All three of the recently proposed apartment buildings fall within the Overlea High School attendance boundary - an institution that reached 112% of its maximum student capacity during the 2022 school year, according to BCPS data.
The county has yet to schedule a public input meeting for the new proposed apartments.
