Baltimore County officials said Wednesday a new $300 million development of stores, offices and residential units in Towson will fill a void — and nearly an entire city block — to create what County Executive Kevin Kamenetz called “an urban centerpiece.

“The privately funded Towson Row project on about five acres off busy York Road will include more than a million square feet of mixed-use space.

Arthur Adler, principal in the developer, Caves Valley Partners, said Towson Row would help Towson become “every bit as vibrant and successful an urban core as places like Bethesda or Harbor East.”

“We intend to do our part in helping Towson achieve its full potential,” he said.
