Several buildings in Towson are being torn down to make way for the proposed Towson Row development.

Crews with Towson-based Caves Valley Partners are demolishing several retail buildings on West Chesapeake Avenue and will then move to tear down an office building on Towsontown Boulevard, a county-owned former office building on Washington Avenue and lastly, buildings on York Road, said Arthur Adler, a partner in the firm.

Adler’s company controls five acres of property in the area and plans to build a 1 million-square-foot mixed-use project including a 200,000 square-foot office tower, 374 apartments, 225 units of student housing, a 150-room hotel, a 1,500-space parking garage and 100,000 square feet of restaurants and shops anchored by Whole Foods.
