It appears that County Councilman Tom Dernoga has Killed the 660 graduate bed Mazza Grandmarc. The conditions he put on the project’s approval today will likely not go over well with Mazza’s investors. Chief among these conditons are:
- Requiring LEED standards in the 11th hour
- KICKER: Requiring a site plan approval for the two commercial parcels on the portion of the property fronting Route 1 (before the resident portion could be occupied)
With seemingly no community opposition, the county council has killed the only up and coming student housing project in College Park. Incredible.
