2220 Clove Terrace is located in the “Coldspring Newtown” planned community, north of Coldspring Lane, west of the Jones Falls Expressway (I-83), east of Greenspring Avenue and south of Northern Parkway.
As described by LiveBaltimore.com:
“Conceived in the 1970s as a “town within a town,” Coldspring Newtown is one of Baltimore’s most innovative planned communities. Residents enjoy manicured lawns, beautiful, mature trees and shrubs, tot lots, an Olympic size swimming pool, tennis courts, walking paths, and bird sanctuary all on pedestrian walkways. Originally proposed as a “community in a park” and occupying approximately 370 acres of rolling, wooded land in northwest Baltimore, Coldspring Newtown was planned to extend from Northern Parkway to Druid Hill Park and from Greenspring Avenue to the Jones Falls Expressway. It was planned to house 12,400 people in 3,780 units with a full range of commercial and community services, as well as parkland and water recreation, to meet most of the everyday needs of the residents. The centrally located town center was to contain a supermarket and more than a dozen other shops and stores, a teen center, a senior center, a library, a post office, and other community facilities grouped around a main plaza south of Cold Spring Lane. An additional 100,000 to 150,000 square feet of public office space was planned for a plaza north of Cold Spring Lane. The town center plazas would be connected by a pedestrian bridge. As it exists today, Coldspring Newtown and The Woodlands comprise approximately 300 homes and provides recreational facilities and access to the Waldorf School of Baltimore which enrolls students from preschool through eighth grade. The new Lower School building at The Waldorf School of Baltimore is adjacent to a vacant pad site where a proposed senior center will be built. The school also has future plans for athletic fields, a community arts center, a library, and a possible high school building. Although these future facilities are to be owned and operated by the school, The Waldorf School and the Coldspring Community (which includes The Woodlands at Coldspring) are building a relationship where the amenities of the neighborhood and the school will be shared in hopes of fulfilling the promise of a unique and rewarding community.”
