Village of Cross Keys is a privately owned upscale area of Baltimore, Maryland. It is located off Falls Road between Northern Parkway and Coldspring Lane, and is home to luxury condos and upscale small shops. It was built in 1965 by Baltimore developer James Rouse (founder of The Rouse Company), as the first in a series of planned communities developed by Rouse, culminating in Columbia, Maryland. The 5000 person Village was built on the former golf course of the historic neighborhood of Roland Park, Baltimore. Micheal D Spear was the development director, later becoming CEO of the Rouse Company. The retail component of the village has declined with competition from Towson Town Center to the north and Harbor East to the South. General Growth properties divested itself of the venture, selling to Ashkenazy Acquisition Corp in 2012.
