Part of the Clipper Mill development by Stuever Bros is due to go to auction after being foreclosed on by BB&T bank.

Most of the development is not effected by this foreclosure, but according to Alex Cooper, the auctioneer,’s site,:

“The Property is believed to be improved by nine (9) spec homes in various states of completion, six (6) foundations and twelve (12) lots on 2.55 acres of land, more or less. The Property was intended to be developed as a residential community and remains subject to The Homes at Clipper Mill Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions dated November 18, 2005 and recorded among the Land Records of Baltimore City, Maryland in Liber 7018, folio 0001, as amended (the “Declaration”).”

The Overlook was designed in part to be 38 high-end green homes, the first in the area like this. The homes, though, were not selling well, and historic tax credits that Struever Bros was counting on from the state, were withdrawn, causing much of the developer’s problems with this site.

Struever Bros has done a tremendous amount of good for the city of Baltimore in their redevelopment of many key areas. It is sad to see them going through such rough times, however, debts are debts, and need to be repaid.
