The two plug-in devices, installed in January, have had very little use so far - literally just a few charges. But advocates of the electric vehicle market believe that will change. "The (two) charging stations are part of our overall sustainability and efficiency initiative," said Garrett Giusti, of Owings Mills-based Black Oak Associates, which owns and developed College Square.

The owner of the Eastport Plaza shopping center in Annapolis and a development team from Baltimore plan to build a $45 million, 200-unit apartment complex at the site of the neighborhood's former theater.
