Waters Edge, Boulevard at Box Hill and other projects discussed at Wednesday's DAC meeting in Bel Air

August 05, 2011

Plans to build a two-story office building at the Water's Edge corporate campus in Belcamp were reviewed at the Harford County Development Advisory Committee meeting Aug. 3.

According to Rowan Glidden, a representative for G.W. Stephens Jr. and Associates Inc., a previous site plan had been submitted for approval and developers Clark Turner wanted to add the building to the plan, which was the subject of a fast track review.

The first floor of the building, Glidden said, would serve as a conference center for the community, while the second floor be used for professional offices. The space would be roughly 30,000 square-feet.

The addition of the office building would cause a reduction in parking spaces available at the campus — taking the current 46 parking spots to a total of 43. To combat a potential parking problem, a possible valet service or shuttle bus to bring people to the building was suggested.

The committee agreed more information was needed on the parking situation, as there were concerns for the lack of spaces.

In Box Hill

Jennifer Leonard with the Village at Bright Oaks spoke about the proposed retail building at the Boulevard at Box Hill, whose tenant has yet to be revealed.

Leonard said the 85,000-square-foot space would have 100-200 parking spots. Developer Ward Properties will not publicly disclose the occupants of the space until a lease has been signed. Because plans for the space are unknown, the committee agreed the health department will need to review plans if the building intends to serve food and drinks.

The project's sediment erosion plan will need to be revised, and a traffic impact analysis for the building remains under review. The site is exempt from forest conservation requirements.

Other projects reviewed at Wednesday's meeting:

• A request to subdivide a lot, creating three lots, on 37.419 acres at Valley Spring on the south side of West Medical Hall Road, east of Thomas Run Road.

• A request to construct a 2,400-square-foot airplane hangar on the north side of Aldino Road (Route 156), west of Hopewell Road.

• A request to subdivide an existing lot, creating two, on 9.359 acres at West Stream Estates at the end of Ripple Stream Court.
