The Village of Cross Keys, an upscale North Baltimore shopping center and one of the earliest projects of Columbia founder James W. Rouse, has been sold by General Growth Properties to Ashkenazy Acquisition Corp., a retail and office property investor, according to a notice to tenants delivered Wednesday. The center on Falls Road is now being managed by Jones Lang LaSalle Americas Inc., according to the memo to retailers from the center's management office.

The 80-year-old, 10-inch water main ruptured about 10 a.m. in the 4700 block of Falls Road, DPW spokesman Kurt Kocher said. DPW provided bottled water to a ManorCare facility that houses 180 residents, he said. In addition, the 388 homes in the Village of Cross Keys, as well as its 150-bed hotel and many homes in neighborhoods on Falls Road between Cold Spring Lane and Northern Parkway, were affected.
