Winthrop Luxury Apartments Break Ground in Downtown Towson
Towson, Maryland (October 15, 2013) – What today is 13 acres of dirt soon will become 470 new luxury apartments in downtown Towson. The Winthrop is the first of two four-story buildings developed by Chesapeake Realty Partners and Bernstein Management Corporation, with participation by Wood Partners. The luxury apartments will be built at Dulaney Valley and Southerly Roads near Towson Town Center mall, replacing 70-year old apartments with an environmentally friendly "green" apartment community.
"More than 2,600 new luxury apartments, town homes and student apartments have been recently built or are in development in downtown Towson," said Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz. "The Winthrop will be a first-class apartment community that is sure to attract people looking for a great location near work, college, shopping, restaurants and entertainment."
Planned features for The Winthrop include controlled-access parking garages, fully-featured Resident's Clubs, swimming pools with outdoor living rooms, fitness centers, and game rooms. Leasing for the first building will begin in May 2014.
"We worked closely with the community to make this latest addition to downtown Towson compatible with the design and neighborhood feeling that makes this such a great place to live," said Councilman David Marks.
"New residential communities are a driver for attracting new shopping and restaurants," added Kamenetz. "Downtown Towson's new residents will quickly become new customers."
More than $770 million in new offices, luxury apartments, shops and restaurants are recently completed, under construction or in development in downtown Towson. Projects include the Towson Square entertainment center anchored by Cinemark movie theaters and restaurants and Towson Row, a $300 million mixed use development.
