The buyer of the Eastpoint Mall has deepened its investment in southeast Baltimore, purchasing a 20-acre parcel with a goal of mixed-use development. MCB Real Estate, LLC paid $3 million for the 5601 Eastern Ave. property last month, according to land records. The company is meeting with community groups and nearby institutions to develop ideas for the site, said MCB managing partner P. David Bramble. It intends a mixed-use project, which will require a zoning change from the current industrial designation, he said.

The city's design panel on Thursday approved a master plan for a large mixed use development in East Baltimore opposite the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. The proposal by developer MCB Real Estate LLC calls for two buildings along Eastern Avenue: a six-story apartment building, with ground floor retail and an interior courtyard, and a smaller, one-story shoppping structure, with a large 250-spot parking lot farther east. If market demand is strong, MCB could create a taller mixed-use site in place of the smaller building.

The developer of a five-acre, mixed-use development at the southwest corner of the intersection of West Cold Spring Lane and Interstate 83 is considering adding a fifth floor of residential units to the project. "A transit-oriented development should have a lot of density," said Judy Siegel, chair of the Linthicum-based Landex Companies, after a presentation to Baltimore's Urban Design and Architectural Review Panel on Thursday. It was the second time that early-stage plans for the development, at 2001 W. Cold Spring Lane, were shown to the panel.

DENVER - Since 2002, more than 1,500 houses have sprouted on land that was once covered by runways from the earliest days of jet travel, as a 7.5-square- mile mixed-use development rises at the former Stapleton airport, about a 15-minute drive east of downtown Denver. Expected to have a population of 30,000 when completed about 2020, Stapleton is thought to be the largest project ever undertaken to fill in vacant or underused urban land. Set against a backdrop of the downtown skyline and the Front Range of the Rockies, the project has been widely praised as a model of "new urbanism."

A Baltimore-based developer is seeking to build an outlet mall with more than 100 stores in White Marsh - just across Interstate 95 from White Marsh Mall and The Avenue at White Marsh. Paragon Outlet Partners wants Baltimore County officials to allow changes to a previous plan for the 88-acre site that sought more than 1,200 housing units plus office space in a mixed-use development called Nottingham Ridge. The company proposed a single-story, 440,000-square-foot outlet complex as the first phase of a larger development that could include about 250 residential units and non-outlet shops, according to R. Kelvin Antill, Paragon's development partner.

Baltimore County elections officials on Tuesday rejected a referendum challenge to a planned Wegmans in Owings Mills and a mixed-use development in Middle River, saying petitions used in the ballot drive did not give voters enough information. Board of Elections director Katie Brown ruled that the developer-funded petitions, which sought to place the County Council's zoning decisions on the 2014 ballot, didn't meet legal standards. The referendum drive involved a number of properties, including Green Spring Station in Lutherville, where the owners hoped a voter challenge could overturn a zoning decision that limited their ability to expand and renovate.

The redevelopment of an 11-acre tract in Baltimore's Remington neighborhood can move ahead now that the state's highest court has ruled on a zoning appeal that held up the plan for years. "The project would have been done, generating benefits for the community and taxes for the city if these petitions had not been filed," said Jon Laria, the attorney for the developer of the mixed-used project, called 25th Street Station. On Tuesday, the Maryland Court of Appeals released its unanimous opinion that two people who live near the development site, one in Remington and the other in Charles Village, are not eligible to appeal the Baltimore City Council's decision to grant the zoning approval for the project.

The county's rejection of a development application for an 18-acre site in the Parole area has been overturned by Maryland's Court of Special Appeals, removing a hurdle for the mixed commercial, residential and recreational project. In a 15-page decision filed yesterday, the state's second-highest court ruled that the county Circuit Court erred in affirming the county Board of Appeals' rejection of the application from developers Annapolis Route 2 LLC and Wharton Annapolis. "It's wonderful news," said Alan J. Hyatt, attorney for the developers.

IT WAS doubtful that the Howard County Zoning Board could make a quick decision on a controversial mixed-use development plan to build scores of houses, townhouses, condominiums and businesses near Fulton.The developers' optimistic prediction that residents' fears of the construction would soon evaporate proved wrong. While most people consider the project inevitable, they still want some control over its pace.Having gained approval from the planning board last month for their Iager Farm project, the developers sought a hasty rubber stamp by the zoning board of the proposed mixed-use development.

After the Mount Vernon United Methodist Church was ravaged by a lightning-strike fire four years ago, the Hampden neighborhood was left with what appeared to be an unusable building. But Mark Dent saw more than a burned-out shell of an old stone church. He saw the future home of Chesapeake Systems, the 25-person computer company he co-owns. Still, the rebirth of the burned out church as a commercial building almost didn't happen. Dent's company spent months — and thousands of dollars — trying to work through the city's antiquated zoning law. As the process dragged on, he thought seriously about moving out of Baltimore, to an office park off Interstate 95. The city hopes to avoid such near-misses with a far-reaching piece of legislation, "Transform Baltimore," that would replace the city's decades-old zoning law. The new law is designed to be more understandable, speed up the zoning process, and discourage ad hoc zoning layers that are being used to sidestep outmoded rules.
