Several members of Greenbelt’s City Council appear uneasy with major changes to plans for a proposed redevelopment of Beltway Plaza into a mixed-use town center. Conceptual plans already approved by the County originally called for the construction of between 850 and 2,500 apartment units and up to 250 townhomes. Now, those townhomes are gone. As recently as October, when developers submitted preliminary design plans for approval, those townhomes were still in the plans. But in late December 2019, the mall’s owners, Bethesda-based Quantum Cos., submitted revised plans to county officials that removed the townhomes and went all in on the 2,500 multi-family residential units.
