Plans for construction of 101 York, a mixed-use project of student housing, commercial space and parking, advanced a step last week when County Councilman David Marks, who represents Towson, introduced a resolution April 21 to approve the continued review of a proposed planned unit development for the project. The council is expected to act on the measure May 22.

The project, which faced criticism from Towson leaders when it was introduced last year, has been revised, according to Marks.

Additional parking, bike racks, a stop for the future Towson circulator, changes in architecture and a community benefit package directed to the three closest neighborhoods — adding $15 million to the original $60 price tag — have been added to the project, Marks said.
