The Baltimore County Public Schools has signed a long-term lease to open a remedial school program at the Baltimore Crossroads @95 development in White Marsh.
The school system has signed a deal with St. John Properties, which will design and build the new 50,400-square-foot Secondary Academic Intervention Model School. The facility is scheduled to be completed by the start of the 2007-2008 school year.
"We appreciate the confidence that the Baltimore County School System has shown in St. John Properties to construct this landmark educational facility," St. John Properties spokesman Gerard J. Wit said in a news release.
The school has been designed to help students with math and reading skills. It will accommodate about 500 students in grades six through 10 and will draw from schools throughout the central, northeast and southeast parts of Baltimore County.
Baltimore Crossroads is a 1,000-acre mixed use project off the Route 43 extension being developed by St. John, Chesapeake Real Estate Group LLC, First Industrial Realty Trust and Somerset Construction Co. BGE Home signed a lease with Chesapeake in January for 100,000 square feet at the development.
MacKenzie Commercial Real Estate Services LLC brokers Christopher C. Bennett and Lacey A. O'Neil represented the school system in the deal. Representatives from the school system could not be immediately reached for comment.
