The developers who wanted to build a 20-story complex called 101 York in the Towson Triangle received a major setback today. Councilman David Marks said he will not approve DMS Development‘s re-zoning request that would have allowed the area to go from 4-story buildings to taller buildings.

“The zoning in the Towson Triangle will remain the same except for the four acres of public open space, which will be preserved as open space through Neighborhood Commons zoning,” Marks said, noting that the area now has more green space preserved.

Wendy Crites, executive director at DMS, said she could not comment on the zoning change. But when asked if the 101 York project was dead, she said, “No, not at all.”
