I think stores like GAP wouldve worked, but they chose to sign Banna Republic. Another Hilton or whatever wouldve worked, but they decided to go with Four Seasons. I think SBER is attempting to do something decidedly upscale which caters to yuppies and empty nesters.

Maybe Cordish will heed your advice, change his tower from 34 stories to 38 stories and add a larger entertainment component. I think it would work well there too.
I wonder if Cordish might listen to some suggestions? He seems to be the one to go to when it concerns entertainment.
Yes, there is some bowling coming. Yes, theatres too. And there are Dave and Busters coming and the ESPNZone for video games and all. BUT, I really think Baltimore developers NEED to go the route of a world-class indoor skate park. Bucky Lasek, (one of thee greatest skateboarders ever), is from Baltimore and wears his O's cap to almost all the X-Games events. If there was an indoor skatepark unlike any other ever created, perhaps it could not only be a draw for tourism but for kids, (of all ages of course), to come and skate and watch others skate. And maybe with it an "X-Games" may land in Baltimore! That would up Baltimore's "cool" factor well off the charts!
But don't make just a skatepark. No. Make a skatepark surrounded by seating with tables in some areas. Have a huge "cafe" of some sort. A LOT like the Hardrock Cafe experience. Have a little stage somewhere so musicians can come to play while people either skate or watch others. The park would consist of a huge street course, (not the average design, mind you), a half-pipe and one huge "Big Air" ramp! Think of the potential for locals, especially the younger kids, who could go there and skate, get really good, then one day compete in an X-Game event!
A lot of people may not watch or get into the X-Games, but, it's a growing sport and very, very marketable!
Whew!

Fluffyhorse...a couple of those proposals have been canned. Harbor Tower was canned because of a lack of need for class-A space. The most recent 'state of downtown' address indicates that the market is improving....so there's still hope maybe. The Westin proposal didnt win. The RLJ Hilton (which is currently under construction) bumped this proposal. I have a feeling we can expect big things from that Conway Street lot though. With the pending development of 10 Inner Harbor, I think more developers will go bigger and more grand...particularly on the westside of the skyline. 34A Key Hwy just lost momentum.

I know that some have been canned but I guess I posted them because they may still be possible looking into the future, since they are on empty parcels.
I think that Eutaw Square may have lost to the Centerpoint proposal

I wish Clarke finds funding for the Rec. Pier hotel project. I really hate seeing that thing just sitting there.

RITZ CARLTON CONSTRUCTION IS IN THE FOREGROUND. INNER HARBOR EAST CONSTRUCTION IS ACROSS THE HARBOR (2 YELLOW CRANES & 1 WHITE CRANE). TWIN FOUR SEASONS TOWERS TO START VERY SOON IN FRONT OF THE TWO YELLOW CRANES!

The Ritz-Carlton Residences look to be making some progress. The Vue is also coming along nicely.

Hopefully the Four Seasons will start in late-Spring/early-Summer as planned.

That's the first I've ever seen of The Pinnacle rendering. I am assuming that the silhouette to its right is Harborview Phase 3. How many stories is that supposed to be?

This is the first time I've seen all these projects laid out in one place. It's easy to forget about a lot of them.
I really like the design of Harbor Tower, but they were right to send them back to the drawing board. That tower needs to be much taller for that piece of real estate. It'll look great once it goes up though.

Also, I love that arch on Union Wharf. It reminds me of Boston's skyline. It would look nice with some highrises behind it.
