Md. Board of Public Works OKs sale of part of horse research farm

December 18, 1997

The state Board of Public Works unanimously approved yesterday the sale of 20.5 acres of the University of Maryland horse research farm to a Baltimore developer who wants to build four office buildings with shops and restaurants in Ellicott City.

The three-member board -- which consists of Gov. Parris N. Glendening, comptroller Louis L. Goldstein and treasurer Richard N. Dixon -- approved the $3.375 million deal.

The plan, proposed by Linden Associates of Baltimore, entails building the office complex around a "Main Street" that would bisect the parcel and offer parallel parking, gazebos and park benches.

The University of Maryland bought the site in 1935.
