Brian Gibbons - whose firm, Owings Mills-based Greenberg Gibbons Commercial Corp., developed Annapolis Towne Centre, Hunt Valley Towne Centre and other shopping centers in Maryland and Virginia - had presented Maryland President Wallace Loh with a preliminary plan "to improve transportation connections to the campus and to repurpose some of the university's golf course," according to a July 8 letter obtained by The Baltimore Sun. The plan came under criticism from local elected officials and from a coalition trying to preserve the golf course.

A Pikesville developer has purchased for $2.85 million a prime waterfront parcel in eastern Baltimore County that could one day feature $1 million homes. Mark C. Sapperstein said that he might build luxury homes on Back River and additional affordable, single-family houses and townhouses with a low-rise condominium building. He hopes to present a concept plan to county officials by June.

Developers for the fifth tract of Roberts Field Business Center narrowly received subdivision approval from the Hampstead Planning and Zoning Commission last night to divide the property into three lots.A series of 3-2 votes -- in which commission members Dennis Wertz and Christopher Nevin voted against Chairman Arthur Moler and members William Drummond and Charles Walter -- slowly watered down the provisions the commission had requested last month.The six requests included a concept plan showing how three businesses would work together on the parcel, a notation informing potential buyers that the impact on adjacent residential properties would be considered by the commission with future plans and a restriction on parking along access lanes.
