A city-owned staging area for a water contractor on East Burke Avenue is set to become vacant.
Wachs Water Services will leave the one-acre property at 219 East Burke Ave. by the end of July, according to County Councilman .
Kurt Kocher, a spokesman for the Baltimore City Department of Public Works, said Wachs found a better location to house their trucks in Golden Ring.
"That's one of the things they've been looking for, so that's where they're going," Kocher said.
Kocher said there was no word yet on what the city's plans are for the property, which Marks recently from 16 residential units per acre to one, to match nearby homes.
"The rezoning of this property is timely, as Baltimore City might now try to sell the land for development," Marks said in an email.
In the email, Marks did thank Wachs for working with neighbors to plant trees along its property line and noted plans to convert the stone parking area facing Burke Avenue to grass.
