1 Light St. apartment tower takes step forward

Oct 24, 2013, 1:31pm EDT Updated: Oct 24, 2013, 5:00pm EDT

The city’s design panel approved, with comments, on Thursday developer J. Joseph Clarke’s plans for a 22-story apartment tower at 1 Light St.

Clarke and his team will have to come back before Urban Design and Architecture Review Panel to tie up some loose ends.

UDARP member Gary Bowden expressed concern with the building’s proposed screening on an attached parking that would makes cars less noticeable to the public

...

The Downtown Partnership of Baltimore Inc. earlier this year urged city officials to consider wielding eminent domain power on the site in an effort to jump-start development. The only substantial changes on the site since Clarke was named the developer in 1992 has been the demolition of the historic Southern Hotel in 2000.

It's in the heart of downtown wrapped around the old building with the McDonalds across from Wells Fargo.

New proposal to add as many as eight floors: http://***************/view/img/349481...6-3597-2-0.jpg

Quote:
The proposal for a new downtown tower at 1 Light St. is set to see major changes this year as a new joint partnership is proposing to grow the building by as many as eight stories.

That would bring what was approved as a 22-story residential tower to 30 stories and trigger a new architectural review process for a building that's already gone before city officials three separate times. Anthony Cataldo, the city coordinator for the Urban Design and Architecture Review Panel, said Tuesday that the building's developers have scuttled the prior design approved last year and are tentatively scheduled to present a new plan in either the third or fourth week of January.

Developer Carey Euwer of Metropolitan Partnership Ltd., who entered a joint partnership with the site's owner last summer, has filed an application to increase the building's density by 243,000 square feet more than what's currently allowed on the site. Documents indicate that the addition of 281,500 square feet of office space is driving the increase on the original 490,000-square-foot plan.

Offices, apartments in latest proposal for 1 Light Street



Quote:
Updated January 27, 2015

A 404-foot glass apartment and office tower would spring from a Light Street parking lot near the Inner Harbor under a Virginia developer's proposal put forward Tuesday.

Metropolitan Partnership Ltd.'s plans call for a 33-story building, with roughly 340 apartments and 10 floors of offices atop a 646-spot parking garage. The garage would be hidden behind a stone facade about as tall as the neighboring Thomas Building, a historic French Renaissance-style structure owned by McDonald's Corp., which has a restaurant on the ground floor.

The current proposal for 1 Light Street adds 10 floors of offices to the plans for a 22-story, $110 million apartment project presented last summer, when the Baltimore Development Corp. backed $28 million in bonds to help pay for the parking garage.

The addition of office floors in the tower plan likely reflects interest in the office space, possibly from M&T Bank. The bank's leases at 25 S. Charles St. and at Montgomery Park are set to expire in 2016 and a bank official attended Tuesday's meeting.

"We don't comment on negotiations that are not yet complete," said David Gillece, regional managing principal of DTZ, which is handling the search for M&T.
