A Catonsville Dilemma- Promenade or Prome-NOT?

A Catonsville Dilemma- Promenade or Prome-NOT? Promenade or Prome-not?

There is a lot of local controversy in Catonsville, a south west suburb of Baltimore County about potential development of a huge multi use complex known as
The Catonsville Promenade. Currently the 200 acre property that fronts up to the Baltimore ring road I-695 is known as Spring Grove Hospital Center.

Although I am told there are still residents on the campus, a majority of the classic buildings are empty and appear abandoned. For the 8 years I have lived in Catonsville the ONLY activity I have been aware of is when a patient has escaped and there is a recorded phone message to make me aware. I recently took a morning stroll to take some pictures. There was not a soul in sight.

Here are some of the buildings.

As a resident of 21228, I believe the new development will be a wonderful addition to the area and provide many community benefits. Many of my Catonsville neighbors do not feel the same way and have placed signs in their yards that express their dislike.

As of yet there is very little information about the entire project and assumptions of negativity towards the potential increase in traffic and crime, I believe, are premature. It seems there is still a lot of red tape that has delayed the initial construction, but hopefully they will proceed soon. 


An article about the Promenade received a response from the developer, Steve Whalen who also resides in Catonsville. An Baltimore Sun article written in 2006 quotes Whalen predicting the start of construction being 2 years away, obviously that did not happen.

Meanwhile, we just wait to see what will happen.
