Town Center Committee to Review Another Apartment Project

Alliance Residential will present updated plans for 212 apartments across from the fire station.

A developer will present updated plans for a new apartment complex across from the Odenton Volunteer Fire Department, and is asking that its pool and clubhouse be used to satisfy requirements for commercial space. 

Alliance Residential will present plans on Tuesday to the Odenton Town Center Plan Oversight Committee. The project calls for a 212-unit project known as Broadstone, nestled on a plot of land near Baldwin Avenue and Berger Street. 

Planning officials said the Broadstone project would be situated on a 13- to 15-acre plot surrounded by wetlands. A master plan for the site also calls for retail and office space and a hotel at separate locations. 

The project is similar to the Novus apartments, located immediately the east at Nevada and Hale Streets. The town center committee recommended approval of that project earlier this year. 

The town center committee will also review plans for fencing at the Kingdom Celebration Center Day Care, as well as plans for a shed on a property on Breitwert Avenue. 

The town center committee will meet Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. at the Western District Police Station, 8723 Telegraph Rd., Odenton.

The full agenda of the meeting and other related materials are attached.

Probably going to sell passes. They better make sure it's big enough.

I agree with Carol and Penny. This area is quickly becoming congested and crowded. As small as Odenton is, it isn't pedestrian friendly. Public transportation is a joke, so you can't conveniently get a bus to the MARC station. Where is the oversight? What they're trying to build is an urban hub but where is the infrastructure, the public transportation, the entertainment, the arts, the recreation, the accessibility, the parks (everywhere I go, trees are being bulldozed)?

Liberal NIMBY'ers! And I'm not sure what MARC station you go to, but I usually ride the 8:33 train and I've never had a problem getting a parking spot.

Agreed!

The best thing about bringing apartments to Odenton is that we will increase the population of 25 to 34 year olds who form the potential market to purchase our homes should we eventually decide to sell. Also, absent an increased population of successful young professional we are unable to attract quality retailers to the area that we need. The main thing is to make sure that the new development actually helps to define the area in a way that is attractive to both new comers and existing residents alike.
