On a small cul-de-sac about a mile southwest of White Marsh Mall, the wooden skeleton of a house under construction has sat untouched for weeks. Work on a neighboring house has gone no further than the concrete foundation. Plywood is stacked nearby. County officials initially designated the site off-limits to construction, but later allowed building to begin.
