That pic is ridiculously scaled. That looks like an 80-story tower. IIRC the design board approved the building pending design changes, no?

Now when you say design changes,do you mean any changes in height?If they cut the height down to the size of Legg Mason,than Im done having hope for this building.But if you mean design changes as they made it even taller and better looking,THAN BY ALL MEANS!

waj0527,I Actually dont think its scaled.Its just the simple fact that Baltimore has never seen a skyscraper of such height and its weird seeing something like 10 Inner Harbor in our skyline.Its just that our eyes are just so used to seeing Legg Mason(529ft) as our tallest, that its so hard to adjust them to seeing a 700 footer in our skyline.Not to mention that Legg Mason only has like 35-40 floors.10 Inner Harbor will have 20 floors extra than Legg Mason which is why you may think that it seems like it has 80 floors instead of 59.I Mean,just look at the Comcast Center in Phildelphia.Kind of Hard to picture a 975 ft skyscraper only having 57 floors while our 10 Inner Harbor will have 2 more floors than the CC and will be more than 200 ft shorter.I really thought that the Comcast Center had like 80 floors and I was stunned when I found our that it only had 57 because our 10 Inner Harbor will have 59+ floors.See What I Mean?Anyway,that rendering is my favorite of them all because it just shows the sheer magnitude of how 10 Inner Harbor will be

we'll try. It might be tough though. You know us Americans are stubborn and unwilling to compromise. Oh wait...that's just our President.

I hadn't seen these renderings of the Hilton Baltimore Convention Center Hotel before, so that means most of you probably haven't seen them either.

Eutaw Street view (looking south)


Pratt Street portico


Eutaw Street view (looking north)


I still don't think it'll be that bad.

^ me too

Although it would block The Bank of America from many vantage points and it would also make Baltimore look like it has a height restriction, although it seriously would have been my favorite Baltimore skyscraper behind Bank of America

also, i cant really tell if the hilton will end up looking good or bland, i guess we'll have to see

No offense to Boston, but Baltimore is turning into a BETTER Baltimore. We're a city with our own identity, whether it's good or bad.

Wow..I Just realize that there will be a couple buildings on the rise around the same time.We Got Legg Mason,The Four Seasons,10 Inner Harbor,300 East Pratt St,Westport,and PROBABLY the Naign Towers.The Best case scenario for Baltimore is to see all the babies rise up all at the same time to show the magnitude of Baltimore.It would be a mini skyscraper boom for us.It would kinda look like Miami since they're now experiencing a MAJOR skyscraper boom!That scene would just be the absolute best for Baltimore!

Is the Harbour Crossing Office Building underway at Canton Crossing? It's suppose to be done in 2008.

The Harbour's Edge Building, set for completion in 2008, will offer 470,000 square feet of commercial and retail space on 12 rentable floors. For detailed leasing information click here.

The Canton Crossing Buildings haven't even started construction yet.I dont even THINK the fencing has gone underway.They still haven't even gotten final approval from the city I THINK.They still have a long way to go before all thats done and over with.When they set the completion for 2008,they were probably thinking DECEMBER 2008 which is late next year.I really dont no if all of this will even come to reality because Canton residents like it nice and clean and I doubt they want a lot more people to live around there disrupting the neighborhood.So its just really all up to the people.Just My Opinion.
