Zoom Meeting on plans for the Overlook site: Wednesday, March 10th 7:30PM

Blue Ocean Group has the Overlook site under contract to Claiborne Senior Living of Hattiesburg, Mississippi, owner / operators of senior living homes.
Claiborne proposes to build a senior living facility with 80 assisted living and 30 memory care units on the Overlook footprint. Claiborne’s building would be significantly lower in height and have fewer units and parking spaces.
Lehr Stream, along with Poplar Hill Association, NRPIA, Sabina/Mattfeldt Association and the Roland Park Civic League, will host a Zoom call with Claiborne March 10, 2021 at 7:30 pm. Claiborne will explain their proposal and the permissions they will need from the city to build it.
Here is the Zoom link:

Claiborne provided a number of illustrations of their proposal. Here is the site plan for the proposed three story building, approximately the same footprint as the Overlook, with one entrance in and out near the Northern Parkway entrance to the Falls. There are no other roads planned, either for construction or upon completion.
Here is the same information in a rendering:
An important consideration for the community is the height and total elevation of the proposed building compared to the Falls. Here is an architectural elevation showing the elevation of the Falls to be 355 feet and the new building 343 feet. The proposed building is 35 feet in height, plus the parapets to cover the mechanical units on the roof.
Many more illustrations are available in the Dropbox files provided by Claiborne:
Please plan to join the community Zoom on the 10th!

Special Announcement on the BCC Property/Land Sale

From Mary Page Michel, Roland Park Community Foundation Chair:

The Greater Roland Park community has a once-in-a-generation opportunity to purchase 20 acres of land at the Baltimore Country Club. The following article from the Roland Park News Winter Edition, which should have arrived in your mailbox December 1st, has not yet been delivered due to problems at the U.S. Post Office. This exciting news needs to be shared with the community, as we will need financial support to create a community park.

For questions or more information please email [email protected].
