|White Marsh Mall (left) isolated, surrounded by parking.|
After decades of growth one would expect that eventually some urban form would emerge, but not in White Marsh. Commercial flex warehouse developments have spread across I-95 (a huge non-walkable barrier) and the latest proposal is just another not walkable mall sitting there in isolation siphoning energy from the first one.
|The stellar place-making qualities are on display among these flex warehouses east of I-95 right off Franklin Square Drive|
|Imagine for each parked car two people walking , imagine all those uses pushed together until they form tight streets, now|
that would be a town center!
