Royal Farms is backing out of plans to build a new store and gas station in Remington, according to an email from the company.
The North Baltimore based chain had proposed building a new site at the corner of West 29th Street and Remington Avenue, but it couldn’t come to an agreement for land it needed at the intersection.
"Unfortunately, we just learned that Royal Farms has not been able to come to an agreement with the current owners of the two parcels at the intersection of Remington and W. 29th St. to create the assemblage necessary for the proposed gas station and convenience store. We therefore will not be pursuing this project at this time and we will need to cancel the meeting scheduled for tomorrow evening," according an email from the developer to residents.
Royal Farms initially approached the Remington community about the plan last month, and was set to meet with the Greater Remington Improvement Association on Tuesday night.
"There was a lot of conflict over this project, and it’s a relief not to go through anymore conflict in the community," said Judith Kunst, president of the Greater Remington Improvement Association.
A call to Royal Farms for comment was not immediately returned.
But last month, Ed Stronski, a marketing manager for Royal Farms, told Patch the company was consiering building a store there, but there had been no deal to acquire the land.
"We’re continuously looking for good sites where we believe we will be successful," Stronski said at that time.
