1987: Board of Appeals ruling favors builder

August 26, 2005

The County Board of Appeals in mid-August 1987 dismissed a motion by the Wilde Lake Community Association seeking to block construction of an 11-story apartment building on the village's lake.

The site was on 5.3 acres just west of Little Patuxent and Governor Warfield parkways. The proposed project included 76 condominiums that ranged in price from $135,000 to about $350,000.

"The opposition is to the size and height and impact of this building," said Carl S. Miller, an association member."... It will dramatically change the nature of the entire region."

The board ruled that the process used to gain approval for the $16 million Residences at Watermark Place project did not violate county zoning law and dismissed the case against General American Real Estate & Development Inc. of Columbia.
