Aspen Heights Towson, located at 101 York Road, is a mixed-use development located in the heart of Towson. This 500,000-SF project includes 248 studio, one-, two- and four-bedroom residential units intended for students attending local higher education institutions. The building includes first floor restaurant and retail space facing York Road which will provide for a vibrant streetscape. The entire building is located on top of several levels of structured parking which can be accessed both from York Road and Burke Avenue. Also included is an extensive green roof system to address stormwater management requirements and a rooftop terrace which includes a variety of program elements for the students including grills, a bocce court, seating areas, and study areas. MRA worked closely with the client, Baltimore County staff, Maryland State Highway Administration staff, local community groups, and an extensive team of design professionals in the development of this complex project. The project started as sketches and progressed through the entire approval process including the Concept Plan, PUD Development Plan, Community Input Meetings, Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) Hearings, and finally into construction drawings and permitting, and construction administration. MRA provided land planning, civil engineering, structural engineering associated with site/civil components, landscape architecture, and construction stakeout services.
