Committee Gives OK to 212-Unit Apartment Project

Developers of the Broadstone apartments project will now seek final approval for the project adjacent to the fire hall in Odenton.

The Odenton Town Center Plan oversight committee recommended approval of a 212-unit apartment complex in Odenton, after developers tweaked the design to include a larger courtyard and condensed the project from three buildings into one.

Alliance Residential presented final plans Tuesday for the Broadstone Apartments, which will feature one- and two-bedroom units near Annapolis Road and Baldwin Avenue.

The complex will include a pool and fitness center, which will offer memberships to the public in order to accommodate requirements for commercial space on the site.

The apartments had previously been given sketch plan approval, but developers returned to the committee after it combined three buildings into one and expanded its inner courtyard.

The Anne Arundel County Office of Planning and Zoning will have final say on whether the project moves forward.

The apartments are considered the first phase of a broader mixed-use development that includes adjacent land currently owned by Reliable Contracting. Plans for the rest of the site are still in their infancy.

The Broadstone apartments will be adjacent to a approved for Nevada Avenue and Hale Street.

Too many apartment units in close proximity can cause problems. Odenton, of course, has its longstanding supply of apartments in Piney Orchard and Seven Oaks. It also has the newly opened apartments at the Haven and at Odenton Station. Next, we'll have the new ones discussed in this story and the ones currently being built on Telegraph Rd. I'm beginning to feel we're getting too many rental units. Especially since Odenton Station and The Haven are not filling up as quickly as hoped.

Well their price point is too high and without 3br apt., families are not looking to rent. There is a need for 3br apt. to accommodate couples with children that still want to have an extra room to use as an office, den or another bedroom. It seems the apartment owners are not building to the market.

I am working on a larger story about the new apartment construction and the town's ability to absorb all these units. Look for that in the next few days.
