Many Locust Point residents are up in arms over Struever Brothers? proposal to build a major new mixed use project? at the? Tide Point location.? Roughly 250 concerned residents showed up at last Wednesday’s special neighborhood meeting. Struever’s plan would have added up to 1,200 residential? units to Locust Point.? This would be in addition to the two large residential projects currently under way in the community – Silo Point and McHenry Row.? Based on the community outcry the plan has already been reduced in scale and is likely going back to the drawing board once again.
“..Struever Bros. has already agreed to significant reductions in the scope of its plans. Among them, the number of residential units was reduced from about 1,000 to 644 units, a 26-story building was scaled down to 15 stories and the amount of office space was reduced from about 300,000 square feet to about 200,000 square feet. ”
City Council Vice President Edward Reisinger, who represents South Baltimore, said he will not endorse the project as it stands now. “If you don’t want this to go through, it’s not going anywhere, it’ll die,” said Reisinger, chair of City Council’s land use committee. “I’m listening to you, and that is what’s going to happen.”
