At Cloverleaf Business Park in Millersville, the latest building under construction contains a child-care center intended to serve both area residents and workers at the park.
Set to open in mid-May, the Cloverleaf Child Development Center will provide care for up to 50 children between the ages of 2 months and 5 years. It is the second child-care center owned by Lenora McDermott, who has another facility in Crofton.
The 4,500-square-foot center is housed in part of the new, one-story building, which contains 42,000 square feet. The architect is CDC of Columbia, according to Jonathan Hamburger, the sales and leasing official for the developer of the park, Attman Brokerage Services Inc.
Hamburger said the park is home to at least 13 businesses that employ about 200 workers.
Cloverleaf is located three blocks from the New Cut Road exit off Interstate 97. The business park, which is scheduled to include four buildings by the end of 1992, is over four years old.
Among the tenants in the existing buildings is Classic Buff 'N Shine, an auto detail shop that is expanding to meet demand. The shop has increased its space from 2,000 to 4,000 square feet, according to Bud Simonds, owner.
The shop offers thorough vehicle cleaning for exteriors, interiors and engines.
"A lot of people bring their cars here when they get ready to sell them," said Simonds, adding that his shop currently handles about 20 cars a day.
Simonds said his clientele includes both auto dealers and car owners. He attributed the increased demand to the demise of competition in the Glen Burnie area.
Renovation and expansion of the Garden Cafe restaurant in the Towson Town Center has begun.
