Baltimore County has backed away from a controversial proposal to place government offices at a historic mansion in Towson, leading the developer to focus instead on a residential plan that could result in the structure being demolished.

Arthur Adler, a principal with Caves Valley Partners, which has a contract to buy the Presbyterian Home of Maryland, said his company is now considering all options for the building – including tearing it down to build homes.

“Everything’s on the table at this moment,” Adler said Wednesday. “We literally just hired an architect.”

Presbyterian Home of Maryland closed as a nursing facility earlier this year, and the company put it up for sale.
