A troublesome private sewer line in Woodberry has once again leaked tens of thousands of gallons of human waste into the Jones Falls, after a temporary fix installed by the city a year ago stopped working for the last week.

The developer behind a new four-story apartment complex coming to Woodberry has bowed to calls from neighbors and preservationists to incorporate a pair of 1840s stone mill homes into the building’s design.

But at a Tuesday night meeting at Itineris, organized by the Woodberry Community Association, locals aired remaining concerns about exactly how those homes will be incorporated, and whether the façade for the future structure on Clipper Road will reflect the neighborhood’s mill-village character.

A developer will proceed with plans to build an apartment building with nearly 80 units on Clipper Road in Woodberry, but will preserve a pair of historic 1840s stone mill houses as part of the design, according to an architect working on the project.

Woodberry residents won’t have to bid farewell to two historic, 1840s stone mill homes on June 15, as a developer has agreed to postpone a scheduled demolition until after he meets again with neighbors.

Jill Orlov got a bad feeling last week when she saw a demolition contractor surveying the outside of 3511 and 3513 Clipper Road, a combined 19th-century historic stone building. Orlov, an architect-turned-artist, said she approached the contractor to ask what was being planned for the mill home.

“I think it’s coming down,” he responded, Orlov says. She figured he meant just the concrete addition in the rear of the building. “Not all of it,” she asserted.

He told her he was sure it was the whole structure.

The owners of a 17.4-acre section of Woodberry’s Clipper Mill complex on Monday night unveiled part of their vision for the neighborhood: As many as four mixed-use apartment buildings, each with built-in parking garages, and a community relying heavily upon Baltimore’s light rail system and public transportation.
