The proposed York 101 project is exactly what downtown Towson needs. Building a new mixed-use centerpiece on an under-utilized parcel with street level retail and hundreds of new housing units can have a dramatic improvement in Towson’s downtown core.
While some oppose this project due to fears of inadequate parking or that it will increase congestion, we respectfully disagree. Creating an attractive, urban environment for the growing student population is part of the key to the success of downtown Towson. This project as proposed would help create a vibrant 21st century downtown Towson and greatly benefit the viability of downtown Towson businesses with more residential units in walking distance to shops and restaurants as well as the Towson University campus.
