Maryland Book Exchange

City council will likely to discuss the Book Exchange development sometime next year again, after County’s Park and Planning issued an continuance to the developers in its last Thursday’s public hearing.

Several residents and City officials attended the public hearing and expressed their concerns on the size of the student housing project there.

The Park and Planning wants the developer to step-back the design so that it conforms to the residential characteristics of the surrounding area.

Members of the North College Park Civic Association (NCPCA) were generally warm to the idea of the development as they think a student housing there will reduce traffic on Route 1 in the City.

I’m interested to see what the developer comes up with the new design.
