that was Ed Hale's old proposal. The octagon shaped tower that is 17 stories and rises over 330 ft. is built already.

Uplands Redevelopment-

In May of 2003, the City acquired the 52-acre Uplands Apartments site from the U.S. Department of Housing & Community Development with the intent of developing a new mixed income neighborhood that offers a modern, urban housing product for the region's middle class, yet retains affordable rental and for-sale options for lower income families. Baltimore Housing engaged national award winning design and market analysis firms to master plan the site with the full engagement of the surrounding community.

Completion Date: Phased construction with anticipated completion in 2007.
Total Project Investment: Anticipated $300 million +Public: TBD

The picture for City Scape is kinda blurry and it's difficult to see what buildings are going up. Is that one or two or even three new towers? If so, that's fantastic. Even one more tower would be great.

I'm also very happy that the old proposed Ed Hale building was knocked out by the one he actually built. The new building sits right along 95 and has quite a presence from the interstate in both height and width.

As for the aquarium land, it seems kinda pointless to me. That could all be valuable land to later develop as the room on the waterfront for future building gets smaller.

I really hope this one happens. It's a great location that used to be a hot retail area until the complex was sold to an owner that had no interest. I still go to movies and supermarket there regularly and love how that plot of land overlooks downtown from way uphill. It integrates well into the upper Hampden/lower Roland Park boundary and should see lots of business from people all around the area. On the celebrity front, I have seen John Waters there food shopping a couple times. If I were in the market for a flat, I would definitely think about living there.

As an aside...I can't wait until The Zenith is finished. Its going to have such a commanding presence.

Wada_Guy posted some new pics in the 'Baltimore Development 13'. Here's one showing progress of The Zenith (in the background) and the cleared lot for the Hilton Baltimore Convention Center Hotel.

As much as I dislike the 1st Mariner Bank Headquarters building, I have to admit that it is certainly an upgrade over what was to be built.

Yeah I kinda like the 1st Mariner Bank headquarters and feel it's a huuuuge upgrade over that first idea. That thing looks like some factory. Those pictures are awesome. Does anyone know whats going on with Cityscape and is that Center Plaza going to be a park area or a building? It would be a nice area to have a park with people eating lunch out there on nice days when they have a break from work.

Here's the link to Baltimore Development News #13

It can be found in the Northeast/Mid-Atlantic subforum.

Also, Center Plaza is going to be a park. There's a rendering of it on Page 4 or 5 of this thread.

One more question. What is that building to the left of the Dean Witter building in the West Shore Park picture? I don't remember any such tall building being there.

I may be showing my youth, but I have never heard a building in Baltimore referred to as "the Dean Whitter building". The tallest tower in that pic, however, is the Legg Mason headquarters tower.

I think you might mean the morgan stanley building (affiliated to DW). The building to the left is the sheraton Hotel.

Thanks. I'm trying to think of where exactly that Sheraton Hotel sits in relation to the Morgan Stanley building because in that picture it looks like it is right across the street and that it is just as tall as the MS building. Is that a new Sheraton Hotel?

In that picture, the Sheraton is much closer than the MS building. That's why they appear to be the same height even though they are not. The Sheraton dates back to the 80's.
