The developer of 105 new homes designed to have sweeping views of downtown's skyline and price tags of up to $450,000 will hold a groundbreaking ceremony today in South Baltimore's Middle Branch area. City officials say WaterView Overlook's 40 townhouses and 65 condos should add more life to a little-visited area considered Baltimore's "other" waterfront. "It's a harbinger of good things to come," said Andrew B. Frank, executive vice president of Baltimore Development Corp., the city's economic development arm. Unlike the built-up Inner Harbor, Middle Branch is envisioned as more of a green zone with trails, fishing piers and restored wetlands in the former industrial area.

Hundreds of Baltimore County officials, civic leaders and east-side residents celebrated yesterday the long-awaited groundbreaking for WaterView, a project designed to replace a crime-ridden apartment complex with quaint homes and a sense of community. Gathering in a large tent near where drug dealers once ruled in the old Riverdale Apartments, government leaders appeared buoyed by the festive mood of the crowd. Those attending carried tote bags bearing the WaterView logo and nibbled on catered fruit and mini-muffins.

Whenever it rains, which is often these days, the headwaters of Middle River transform into a screaming bright red-orange glow. Nature at work? Yes, but some Baltimore County residents point to WaterView, the $40 million housing development sprouting next to the river, one of the Chesapeake Bay's primary tributaries. County officials, the residents say, haven't done enough to prevent red clay sediment from running off the WaterView property into the river. Nor, they say, has the developer of WaterView, Larry Rosenberg.

Rebelling against the image of America's sterile suburbs, Baltimore County officials yesterday selected a developer who wants to create a village of winding streets, porch-front homes and small shops on the site of the former Riverdale apartments in Middle River. The Riverdale project - the cornerstone of an ambitious effort to revitalize the county's eastern waterfront - was awarded to WaterView Joint Venture of Owings Mills. The principal behind WaterView, Mark Building Co., has built more than 1,000 upscale houses in western Baltimore County and White Marsh, the Village of Cross Keys in north Baltimore and in Howard and Frederick counties.

Waterview Overlook, a condominium complex to be built in the Harbor West community, will be among the most environmentally friendly buildings in Baltimore. Developers are using recycled wood for half of all the flooring and cabinets in the units. It uses Energy Star appliances and building materials such as caulk and tiles that are made with environmentally friendly products. While homes and office buildings have led the "green" building boom, developers are now applying environmentally friendly materials to residential high-rises and apartment complexes in hopes of luring more customers.

Marge Pearce always wanted to live by the water. In November 2002, the 60-year-old widow and mother of two grown daughters sold her large home in Fallston and bought a Harford County condominium at the community of Water's Edge. This gated community, on the banks of the wide and serene Bush River, has been designed around a 30-acre private nature preserve. The rich architectural details of the one-level homes and condominiums include coffered, domed, or tray ceilings, as well as finely turned interior columns and pilasters.

Originally from Baltimore County's east side, Michele and J.D. Urbach wanted to go home again. Or at least be much closer to it. The couple, who are in their 20s, had moved from Dundalk to Owings Mills last year but found themselves frequently returning to their roots to visit family, attend church and tend to other commitments. As the gnarled face of the rust belt in eastern Baltimore County finally started getting a face lift, the couple seized a new dream. In June, the Urbachs, whose first child is due in February, will move into a new four-bedroom $200,000 home in the community of WaterView at the headwaters of Middle River.

When you take a look at the plans and casually call it a "subdivision," expect to be immediately corrected. The creators of WaterView, in the Middle River-Essex area, believe the 65-acre development warrants a bigger name. For them, it's "a new American town." Ground was officially broken Tuesday on a site once occupied by the crime-ridden and ailing Riverdale Apartments. Prices for Water- View's 175 single-family detached homes will start in the $160,000 range. Larry Rosenberg, managing partner of WaterView Joint Venture LLC and president of Mark Building Co., had promised local politicians and anxious neighbors that in the coming months and years they will see a community that "will feel very much like home right from the beginning."
