The grade changes on I-83 would probably be prohibitive for a truly elevated rail line, esp. commuter rail.

BTW, at $100 million/mile for elevation, that's about $4 BILLION!!!! to York.

Ask York and PA to pay for that stuff, I want my Red and Yellow Lines! We could pay for an HRT line from SSA through DT to Towson for that money--a much more beneficial and purposeful project!

Another nice developable parcel is where South Balto.General/Harbor Hospital is located. I wish I had a $ for every budget I developed for the demolition of that building.

Are you talking about the old one on Light St. or the "new" 1968 building on Hanover St.? I can't imagine them going anywhere, unless the hospital closes completely.

I thought there was a proposal years ago to build mid rise condos just to the south of the hospital. I wonder what ever became of that?

If they are 60 stories purely residential i would say 625 to 675. If they are mixed use including offices I would say 675 to 750. with 60 stories if they wanted with an ornate crown it could easily go 800 feet tall.

Very nice project, indeed! Reminds me of the marketplace in Charleston, SC.

Yeah, 10 IH is late on getting out their latest details. Have not got any new info yet. As for 300 east pratt street, I'm supposed to be contacted this week about it's progress. Just stay tuned. One thing Baltimore people should be, is patient. We all should be used to waiting.
I am getting tired of waiting myself, I must say though.

Technically, it's still proposed. But, believe me, it'll be approved soon.

Baltimore Tops Most Underrated City List

Meteorologist Tim Williams
Reporting

(WJZ) BALTIMORE As the upcoming travel season fast approaches, Baltimore has soared to the top of one list that is both good and bad.

Tim Williams reports there is a sweet and sour distinction of being the number one underrated city.

If you log onto Sherman's Travel and click on the top 10, you'll get the most underrated cities in the United States. Baltimore tops that list.

"What they're saying is we're a destination you don't want to miss. And when they're saying we're underrated, it means that not enough people know about us," said Tom Noonan from the Baltimore Area Convention and Visitors Association (BACVA).

Noonan is marketing the city's charm beyond the Inner Harbor. BACVA wants to draw summer travelers who want to "get in on it." They are especially interested in introducing people to the lesser known attractions.

And some people are answering the call.

"I love how this is. It reminds me of Chicago and the lakefront, and how they've redone it. It's a nice tourist area," said Anita Sobkoviak, who is visiting from Chicago.

"I live two blocks from the Inner Harbor and I'm raising a two-year-old there. There's tons to do, every museum...all kinds of restaurants," said Cathy Karducci.

Top Ten List:

Baltimore
Fort Lauderdale
Houston
Kansas City
Louisville
Minneapolis
Pittsburgh
Portland
Providence
Sacramento

I haven't had the time to photodocument the construction, but it would honestly take weeks. Asking residents about how they feel about the construction gets blank stares as if thinking, "You mean I'm supposed to have some sort of opinion?"
Sounds like Berlin when they decided to move the capital back there. At one time, there were 2,500 tower cranes on the skyline.

I wonder if the closing of the JP Morgan office will impact the start of construction of Harbor Point? I think they were sort of counting on them to lease some of the new office space. Brown's Wharf will have a big vacancy now.

It is Morgan Stanley that is leasing Browns Wharf and going into HarborPoint not JP Morgan. There will no no large vacancy at Brown's wharf.

Opps. Same roots, wrong tree. That's good news! Where was JP Morgan's Baltimore operation then? Was it near the main Post Office? Anyone know?

Baltimore got 2 national awards for the Crescent and Charles Commons. Also, Forest City Residential will be doing the Hopkins Bio Park housing project. The National Association of Home Builders and Freddie Mac sponsor this award. Apparently, it's a big deal.

SPECIAL REPORT: NAHB Announces Winners of Pillars Awards

By Kelly Sheehan, Online News Editor

APRIL 13, 2007 -- Hollywood, Fla. -- Forest City Residential was the big winner last night at the National Association of Home Builders’ (NAHB) Pillars Awards Gala at the Westin Resort & Spa in Hollywood, Fla.

After the event, Ron Ratner, president of Forest City Residential, tells MHN that this year’s finalists were all noteworthy. “You could have tossed a coin to decide which companies should win,” he said. “All of the projects were projects that the companies were proud of.”

Ratner added that all of Forest City’s winning projects were individually crafted and designed, and featured affordable-housing components because one of the firm’s goals is reaching out to the surrounding communities.
