Recent opinions expressed on the pages of The Baltimore Sun make it seem like the proposed 25th Street Station project in Remington is a done deal — and that the proposal as written is the only choice for Baltimore. The coalition groups we represent, Bmore Local and Baltimore CAN, disagree, as does a large and varied group of city residents who are committed to raising the standards for development in Baltimore, starting with 25th Street Station. We are concerned about the size and scope of the proposed development and what this type of big-box retail center would really mean for nearby residents and those who would work there.

A second Walmart store will open in Baltimore by the fall of 2011 as an anchor at a $65 million shopping and residential development planned for a parcel that has housed the Anderson Automotive dealership for decades. Walmart executives announced Thursday they are planning a new store at the 25th Street Station project being spearheaded by developer Rick Walker. Walmart, the world's largest retailer, would join Baltimore's first Lowe's Home Center as tenants in the center. The new store would generate 250 jobs, according to company officials.
