The former site of a waste incinerator in Northeast Baltimore could be developed into a big-box store or warehouses or a combination under a plan being proposed by construction magnate Willard Hackerman, who has a contract to purchase the vacant, 19-acre site on Pulaski Highway from the city for more than $1 million. Hackerman, president and chief executive of the Whiting-Turner Contracting Co., has asked the city to designate the 6709 Pulaski Highway parcel a planned unit development, which would allow him to proceed with one of three scenarios.

A developer offering to build a $23 million school in Anne Arundel County in exchange for the approval of a large residential project still faces a long process to get it approved. While the County Council unanimously approved zoning for the 1,000-home RiverWood development at its last meeting, the Severna Park-based developer the Polm Cos. must still submit a site development plan to the county for approval, Anne Arundel officials said. The project also must be included in the county's Water and Sewer Master Plan and show that it conforms with the county's adequate public facilities law. The process could take months, and there are no guarantees that the development would gain all of the required approvals.

Rutter Jr., director of the county Department of Planning and Zoning and one of the architects of the compromise.According to the proposed agreement, Partners Quality would have to install a turnaround lane for county snow removal trucks on the site and dedicate a 15-foot-wide easement along the front of the property to the county.

Opponents of a proposed Ellicott City Wal-Mart want the county planning director to tell the Zoning Board in person why he doesn't like the idea, either.Planning Director Joseph W. Warren Jr. sent the Zoning Board a 25-page technical report recommending against rezoning 54 acres near U.S. 29 and U.S. 40 for retail rather than office use. Wal-Mart Stores Inc. wants the property rezoned so it can build a department store and members-only wholesale buying club.Simply having a report for the record is not enough, said Thomas M. Meachum, an attorney representing residents opposed to the project.

The Columbia Wegmans grocery store faces one less hurdle after a challenge to approval of its site development plan was dismissed this week. Michele LeFaivre, Board of Appeals hearing examiner, ruled Monday that "the 30-day filing has to be very strictly construed," before dismissing the appeal brought by Philip Rousseau, a Columbia resident whose property backs up to within about 15 feet of Snowden River Parkway, which is expected to handle much more...

Amid a groundswell of community opposition, Wal-Mart announced yesterday that it has backed out of a plan to build a 121,000-square-foot Supercenter in Crofton. After meetings with County Executive John R. Leopold and property owner William Berkshire, a spokesman for the retail giant noted that despite making several concessions, "it has become clear to us that there are various views about a project of this size and scope at this specific site and its relationship to the County's long-term development profile."

The next phase of the luxury planned community Maple Lawn, Maryland will include more than 220 homes and a significant expansion of space for commercial offices. Many regulatory hurdles must be cleared before the expansion can begin, and it will be several years before the homes are constructed, but the developer is seeking county approval of an amended sketch plan that determines what can be built and where on the property. The Planning Board deferred action on the request Thursday night after a lengthy public hearing, saying it needed time to consider the application and testimony, particularly from opponents.

PUBLIC PROJECTS long planned but never realized cast a shadow of uncertainty over private development. That prospect has to be accepted by anyone who buys land with such pencilled-in possibilities on the plat. But one can appreciate the frustration of James Harris, who bought a 100-acre field east of Westminster in 1985 intending to develop 46 building lots, which already had preliminary county approval. Since then, his plans have been stymied by 40-year-old unfulfilled state plans to build a traffic bypass around Route 140. Up to half his land could have been taken by proposed bypass routes.

For months, motorists traveling near the intersection of Routes 175 and 108 have watched as vast amounts of earth were cleared, graded and moved. But that was just a precursor to the construction of a sprawling upscale residential and retail complex that will be one of the last major developments of Columbia's New Town. The county Planning Board has approved a site development plan for a one-story, six-unit retail structure at the site, the forerunner of Gateway Overlook, a 123-acre development.
