I was boating by Ft Carroll and was amazed that this had just gone to the birds. I know that a man was to update and change it to a casino that did not happen due to Ann Arundel County. Then I was informed that SBER was going to conserve this great piece of history.What happened?

The casino idea never had much traction. Legalities aside, it's a small space and you'd have to deliver the slot victims by boat. I think SBER obtained the development rights in the same spirit as when people purchase real estate on Mars. As for the birds, the place hasn't seen much use since WWI and has never fired a shot in anger, so there isn't much history to speak of, except that has the same design as the more famous Fort Sumpter.

Unfortunately a gas line leak halted the Ritz Carlton construction today and it is believe that they were the ones who accidently cut the line. Hopefully they are back up and working in the next few days.

I really like the progress on the Vue. If only it were a bit taller.

Steven, I have looked everywhere and can't find that article about the Icon holdup (ugghhh that tower would be such an elegant addition). Do you have the link to it? Thanks.

thanks wada. The Zenith looks to be moving along quickly now that the garage floors are in place. Can't wait to see that glass facade go on.

I'm also excited for the glass facade of the Zenith, but worry that its shorter height will make it seem really wide. The city really needs to stop going big and bulky and start going sleek and higher. Obviously, that area can't go much higher because of the restrictions.

Thanks, Dancer.

***Another crane in the sky!***

I had breakfast at XS on Charles at Mt. Royal this morning. I noticed that the crane is up for the condos at 1209 Charles Street. Sorry for the overall shitty quality of the pictures. I took them with my cell. Either way, Im sure you guys will enjoy.
