Rosewood Hospital Buildings Razed to Make Way for Stevenson University Project

The $20 million transformation of the former Rosewood Hospital Center into a Stevenson University athletic complex with a possible “fraternity row” is moving at a fast pace after a 17-year delay.

Close to 300,000 square feet — in 18 dilapidated buildings — have been demolished since September, said Howard Brown, chairman of David S. Brown Enterprises Ltd., developer of the project.

On Monday, Brown said a master plan was in the works by Stevenson Universityofficials to plot the layout and function of the 117 acres the school purchased from the state June for $1.

It is the latest expansion of the suburban university into Owings Mills from its original location in the Greenspring Valley where it was founded as Villa Julie College. Brown said construction will begin at Rosewood after grading permits are granted by Baltimore County.
