More homes being built in Balto. Co.


December 20, 1992|By Edward Gunts | Edward Gunts,Staff Writer

Mid-Atlantic Homes has begun construction of DeerTrace, a 100-unit townhouse community in Owings Mills New Town.

DeerTrace is the second project in the same area for Mid-Atlantic, which recently sold out 109 townhouses in the Five Oaks community of Owings Mills New Town.

The DeerTrace houses come in two- or three-bedroom models and have brick fronts, eat-in kitchens and luxury "superbaths" near the master bedroom. Prices start at $123,900. The sales office at 4405 New Town Blvd. is open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily.

St. Ambrose

The American Friends Service Committee, a Quaker group, recently sold its former regional office at 317 E. 25th St. for $70,000 to the St. Ambrose Housing Aid Center, which is already located at 319-321 E. 25th St.

St. Ambrose, a nondenominational housing agency founded in 1968 to help first-time home buyers, plans to expand its quarters into the new building and rent surplus space to other nonprofit groups. AFSC is in the midst of a capital campaign that will enable it to purchase its new Mid-Atlantic headquarters at 4806 York Road.

Architects merge

Two Baltimore architectural firms joined forces this month under the name of RCG Inc. The firms that merged are Richter Cornbrooks Gribble Inc., which is 85 years old, and Verkerke Boyles Architects Inc., which is 42 years old.

The newly created firm has nearly 20 employees and is located at 2120 N. Charles St. Principals include: Ronald Gribble, Howard Downing Jr., Douglas Kelso, J. Hoult Verkerke, Charles Boyles and Mark Kendall.

One of its recent commissions is a $3.2 million, 550-seat performing arts center that the Jewish Community Center plans to build in Owings Mills -- a Richter Cornbrooks project.

Brought in from the Verkerke Boyle office were commissions for the $5.5 million Jacksonville Elementary School planned for Baltimore County; $4.5 million worth of renovations for the Charles H. Hickey Jr. School in Baltimore County, and a $3.5 million addition to the Center for Applied Technology/South in Anne Arundel County.


Leon N. Weiner & Associates of Wilmington, Del., recently completed construction of the Schumaker Place Apartments, a $5.6 million, 96-unit apartment complex for low- and moderate-income residents on South Schumaker Drive in Salisbury.

The development consists of eight three-story walk-up buildings containing 72 two-bedroom units and 24 three-bedroom units. Rents range from $360 to $410 per month for families whose annual incomes range from $17,000 to $25,000.
