There’s an interesting article on the MD Daily Record website about the proposed Walgreens on Key Highway in South Baltimore.
South Baltimoreans are known for being fiercely protective of their harbor views.
In 2007, when developer Richard A. Swirnow proposed building two 26-story condominium towers next to his HarborView project on the Key Highway waterfront, community opposition was so fierce that Mayor Sheila Dixon stepped in to block the proposal.
But now the community of Riverside, which sits adjacent to Federal Hill, is trying to stymie a proposal by developer Mark A. Shapiro to build a Walgreens drugstore at the corner of Key Highway and Boyle Street because the proposed structure is not tall enough.
“You can’t win with them,” Shapiro said. “They’re anti-development.”
