A study result for building 100 apartments on the Columbia Gym’s parking lot (updated)

Updated: CA owns the land and has not aproved anything on this land yet. So we should be a little at ease.

I was shocked to hear that a study result for building 100 apartments on the Columbia Gym’s parking lot. This is 200 meters away from my home and I walk by there everyday. The parking lot is overflown with cars in the rush hour. Columbia Gym is really popular for our neighborhood because CA offers the service our residents want and there are no other substitute in this area.

The Clarksville Pike (108) Corridor plan is posted on the county website http://www.howardcountymd.gov/Departments.aspx?id=163. On page 14, it is showing intended development on the Columbia Gym parking lot in 2035.

CA seems not aware of this yet. I am wondering how DPZ can work out such a controversial proposal. CA, local residents and churches nearby will fight for sure.

    There is no proposal for apartments that has been submitted, discussed or floated. You appear to looking at an artist’s interpretation of what the Village Center might look like under the village master plan and design guidelines at some point in the future. Nothing more.
