Old Koons development – Current plan includes a hotel and retails. The developer is planning to add an apartment

Keane Enterprises is revising this DSP to add 2.12 acres of adjoining land at 4700 Berwyn House Road to construct a 7-story, 275-unit apartment building. There is currently an office building at this location which the applicant would demolish.

The original DSP for this project was submitted by Keane Enterprises and consisted of redeveloping the former 3.13-acre Koons Ford Site located at the northeast corner of Baltimore Avenue (US1) and Berwyn House Road with a mixed-used development. The development included a 156-room hotel (Marriott) , 23,615 square feet of retail (CVS) , and a parking garage. It was approved by the District Council on July 8, 2013 with conditions. You can read more about that plan here.

The City entered into a Declaration of Covenants and Agreement with the applicant in June last year. The Planning Board is scheduled to hear this case on July 10th. The applicant will come to tomorrow’s worksession to present their new plan. The Council will likely make a decision in a Special Session on July 8th City Council worksession.
