A developer plans to build 477 housing units on 76 acres of Mount Joy Farm, a green island in the fast-developing triangle bounded by Routes 100 and 108 and U.S. 29, according to designs submitted to the Howard County Department of Planning and Zoning this month. Winchester Homes bought the land from farmer M. L. Dawson Lee last fall for an estimated $12 million to $15 million. Lee, a cattle farmer who for years resisted development of his well-situated property, decided to sell the land after suffering a stroke and realizing he could no longer farm it. Winchester's plans, which are under review by county planners, call for 294 apartments and condominium units, 118 townhouses and 65 detached, single-family homes.

They'll lose their bucolic setting, but the two old cabins at Mount Joy Farm in Ellicott City that some believe to have been slave quarters won't fall to the wrecking ball. Howard County Planning and Zoning Director Joseph W. Rutter Jr. approved a waiver this week that will make it easier for Winchester Homes, the developer of a subdivision at the farm, to preserve the cabins. The waiver will allow the developer to keep the road alongside the cabins a private way, freeing the developer from setback rules that might have forced the cabins' destruction.
