they're gonna be located in Westport, an area of South Baltimore near Cherry Hill. In an effort to make the whole area more marketable, it has recently taken on the name Harbor West.

Construction Update: The Vue condos

Looks like it has about 15 more floors to go before it tops out.

Well, they really have three options there.
1. 3 500 footers.
2. 2 750 footers.
3. 1 1,500 footer.

Of course there is always the chance that they may do 6 250 footers instead.

I hope one 1,500 that would be great. But six 250 footers would suck but The more high-rises the better I guess.

it depends on where this is.
if its not near anything, in a bad part of town, 6 250 footers would be best, making the most impact on the surrounding community, and the city as a whole. Once the area turns around, the demand for a 1500 foot tower would present itself

I see what you are saying. I would just love to see a 1000+ footer in Baltimore.

That would be great. I hope that 10 Inner harbor is done in the next three years at lease. Legg Mason is so small for a city this size. Soon some suburbs are going to start getting skyscrapers that tall.

Yeah, could you imagine if Towson built a tower over 600 ft. tall!?
That would be pretty bad that Baltimore would be trumped like that. Let's hope 10 Inner Harbor gets some more public info out there soon.

Yea that would suck. I see Towson or even that National Harbor in PG County that they're trying to build up. Get a 600+ footer In the next 5 years or so. Most likely condo's or a hotel.

Not to worry, at least about Towson; the NIMBYS are in force there. They get their dander up about a 5 storey building.

I'm providing this link to explain why Heavy Rail must be studied for the Red Line project. I've read some for and against opinions about heavy rail and I have found the opposing views to be not well founded.

Baltimore needs and deserves the best transit system and light rail and bus rapid are not worth the cost and lack much of any benefit. We at the Transit Riders Action Council (TRAC) feel that neither LRT nor BRT has a good chance of funding, but only HRT is viable.

http://www.getontrac.org/fac_sheet.html

The FAQ needs to be updated a bit and re-edited for clarity and so forth, but I think I've given a pretty rational and well rounded justification for why HRT is must be included for study. Any questions, comments, or criticisms welcomed!

Thanks,
Nate

I think that Baltimore should have more Heavy Rail lines to. A light rail system is just to slow it's like a bus. I agree it's worth the extra money.
