The Howard County Planning Board last week approved a site development plan for a pair of two-story office buildings in Columbia Gateway. The buildings will be on 7.7 acres on Lee DeForest Drive, south of Robert Fulton Drive. The developer is Gateway Centre LLC. One structure will have 75,000 square feet; the second will have 55,000 square feet. Both will have modest warehouse components. Lee DeForest Drive must be extended toward the B&O Railroad before final approval of the plan may occur, the Department of Planning and Zoning said.

Linda Wilson gazed with horror at the vultures nesting on the balcony just off her fifth-floor office and waiting to ensnare field mice below. Thus was her baptism to Columbia Gateway. It might be more accurate to say it was Wilson's introduction to the idea of Columbia Gateway because other than the swooping predators and a scattering of single-story offices in the distance, there was little else but vacant land. No more. Today, the office park, which is flanked by Interstate 95, Route 175 and Snowden River Parkway, boasts almost 70 office complexes, housing some of the region's biggest companies and employing 11,000 people.

State Highway Administration officials have postponed a meeting about Route 32 in western Howard County that had been scheduled for tomorrow. No new date has been set, although highway officials are considering March 20 at 4 p.m. in the county's Columbia Gateway building, 6751 Columbia Gateway Drive. The meeting will bring together a panel of land-use experts who are considering the effects of three proposals for Route 32: widening it from two lanes to four between Route 108 and Interstate 70 and adding interchanges; adding only the interchanges; or leaving the road as it is.
