For years, White Marsh was a model of suburbia with its mall, shopping centers, wide streets and neighborhood cul-de-sacs -- a fast-growing area but never a community.Now, the developer of White Marsh hopes to give that part of Baltimore County a communal spirit and the downtown it never had -- building restaurants, stores and a cinema along a single street designed to resemble a Maryland village.Shops at the $45 million Avenue at White Marsh -- familiar names such as Old Navy Clothing Co. and Barnes & Noble Booksellers -- will have a familiar look, housed in buildings resembling a fire station, a mill, a city hall and a hardware store.

Once upon a time in a place called Baltimore County there were two "town centers."One was called Owings Mills. It had a fancy Metro line, a posh mall, even some national acclaim as the address for public TV's "Wall Street Week." The other was named White Marsh. It also had a big mall, but seemed dominated by spent sand-and-gravel quarries.While Owings Mills remains a desirable location, it got entangled in a bollixed plan to create a man-made lake. White Marsh, meanwhile, has quietly generated some of the biggest economic news in the region, including the $37 million Time Warner Inc. distribution center, a $34 million "power center" discount shopping plaza and a $45 million "Main Street"-style entertainment complex.
