I find the Biopark idea especially interesting. Excellent project.

Baltimore has always held a special place in my heart as have Pittsburg, Cincinnati, Louisville & St Louis, but neither has progressed much, and the same could be said about many other American cities. It seems that we Americans prefer to live in suburbs with our barking dogs, SUV's and Pickup trucks while our world cousins live in the city with security, human companionship, vast public transportation systems to everywhere, free medical care, and rent cars occasions to explore the vast countryside that they did not build upon that is free of rubbage, dog manure, and the constant barking of dogs that run here and there and everywhere polluting our streams and maiming our children.

Somewhere, we've fallen off the turnip truck of happiness, and our federal government shows more interest in dogfood, pet meds, & obesity operations than it does in people, and our people, gorging on beer and pizzas, don't do a damn thing about it.

We have two of them! The University of Maryland on the West Side of downtown has a large Biopark under construction, and John's Hopkins in the east side has one too. The U of M one is further along with 1 building open for business and two more in the pipe line. The Hopkins park is massive and will include housing, retail, and other functions in it. The cost of this one is estimated to be $1.5 Billion when all is said and done. That's not including the $1.3 Billion hospital expansion which is a different project entirely.

Johns Hopkins has really become the main engine for growth and change in Baltimore City. They now have 5 large campuses that employ a total of 65,000 people. They are the largest private employer in the State of Maryland. They receive more research money than any other University in the country, have the highest rated hospital in the county, and their other programs such as engineering, music (Peabody Conservatory), and public health are top rated too. The City of Baltimore owes Johns Hopkins one hell of a debt and a big old THANK YOU!

It had rained. There is supposed to be grass where the black is when all is said and done. I think the black is actually part of the membrane used to keep the parking garage dry.

they are still in the middle part of this project. They had to bust up the old concrete, excavate down to the roof of the garage, and now they are sealing it. Next they have to put a bunch of dirt and concrete back on top before they landscape the whole thing. I doubt it will be finished until next year.

Once it is finished, they will probably block it off and park a bunch of construction equipment on it so they can convert the BG&E building into apartments. Go figure.

Well, now we know that the promenade will go through the Ritz site. I always thought it would. You don't build a 7 mile long walkway and have it interrupted by one project no matter how rich the occupants are. Also, the city picked up the tab for part of the bulkhead work.

Man I wish someone would demolish Scarlett Place Condos and put a quality tall tower. That'd really connect the towers in Harbor East with the rest of the CBD. Can't wait thil those projects get built.

Cityscape is up in the air right now, as are the two towers around Federal Hill. What is this 28 story Harborpark apartment tower you speak of?

Wow I had never heard of Harborpark before. This is very exciting news. When is construction expected to begin and is there a rendering?

Yeah...I havent heard of that project either. Is this 8 story garage already built or will it be apart of the new development?

Hey im new, just wanted to say lots of good info on this board. Keep up the good work, and I also wanted to post a picture I have not seen on here, though I could be mistaken.

The pic said something about Parcel B, but its hard to make out which building it is.

1st of all, "WELCOME, Baltimoreborn1! Please post often.
Please visit our specific Baltimore Development News Forum in the "North East Section of this site.
The picture you posted was an 'older' rendering of Harbor East. The buildings have changed alot since this rendering. For the better, IMO.

It is a picture of Inner Harbor East. However it is before the development was enlarged. The buildings there are much larger and much taller. Also I drove by the Four Season site and yes, it is getting set up for construction. Part of the lot is sectioned off, with a small crane, nd construction trailers.
