Work on a new residential enclave at Port Covington overseen by local developer Mark Sapperstein will begin next month with the demolition of the former Locke Insulators building. Sapperstein said Thursday the nearly 619,000-square-foot industrial complex next to Nick’s Fish House will be razed starting Oct. 15. The ambitious demo of the manufacturing plant, which was shut down in 2017, will take place “piece by piece” and ultimately make way for the first of 297 townhouses set to break ground in May by DRB Homes. Rockville-based DRB announced its partnership with Sapperstein’s 28 Walker this month and pledged the new community will allow access to the Middle Branch waterfront not available for 100 years.
