Plans to raze part of a marina near the Chesapeake Bay to build waterfront apartments are moving forward, but a new proposal includes a restaurant.
Last year, developer Brad Waitzer pitched an idea to redevelop the Marina Shores Marina property off North Great Neck Road with 261 apartments. The marina sits on Long Creek, across from Bay Island.
Density and traffic were among neighbors’ concerns, and the developers went back to the drawing board. The new proposal includes fewer apartments – 200 luxury dwellings on a smaller footprint – leaving enough space to add a restaurant.
The Planning Commission recommended approval of zoning changes and use permits Wednesday. The City Council will vote on the requests soon.
