Maybe that should be a consideration next time a certain group of people are needlessly targetted or the wrong country is invaded.

Maybe we should have frozen some accounts in Siberia or Tahiti instead huh?

This is good to see some new development away from the harbor. Maybe this can start a trend of knocking down old apts for new less density market housing.

Some one else said it on this website heres the article

"Donald Trump buys One Light Street Address, Plans Tallest Tower!"

Sources say that billionare Donald Trump has agreed to buy the property at One Light Street for a cost of over $20 million. Trump's plans call for a mixed-use high-rise tower with a 5 Star hotel brand, condos, retail and premium class A office space. The tower, when completed, will be 75 stories and 1,234 feet tall. Clearly times are changing for Baltimore and it's skyline. Even area NIMBYs have changed their tune to this news. "We love Mr. Trump's proposal and we support it 100%", said one local NIMBY. "We would have supported a lot of other tall tower proposals throughout the city, but, to be frank, they were not tall enough!"
Recent news of other high-rise developments throughout the city have recently been announced, including 10 Inner Harbor, 300 East Pratt Street, 701 East Baltimore Street, the 60 story twin Naing towers, Pat Turners 65 story office tower and many other shorter but very significant buildings that add to much needed density.
When asked why he chose Baltimore for this ultra tall tower, Mr. Trump exclaimed, "Baltimore has always been on my radar for a project of this magnitude. In fact, I'm even thinking about buying a few more properties in the city and build more towers. Preferably condos. Who knows, you may see another 1,000 footer proposed real soon."

State economic development agency to call World Trade Center home
Baltimore Business Journal - 2:18 PM EDT Thursday, July 26, 2007by Robert J. Terry

Baltimore's World Trade Center, the 30-story waterfront office tower that until recently the state was trying to unload, is getting a new tenant: the Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development.

The agency known as DBED will move its headquarters to the Pratt Street address in October 2008. Officials said the move will cut costs -- about $100,000 over the lease term -- and more closely link Maryland's business development team with the Maryland Port Administration, its maritime agency, with an eye on broadening the state's international business profile.

About 250 of DBED's 322 employees will occupy seven floors in the building.

"For an agency responsible for marketing Maryland to the world, there is no better address to have than that of the World Trade Center Baltimore," said John D. Porcari, secretary of the Maryland Department of Transportation, which has been seeking to boost the building's tenant base since February, when Gov. Martin O'Malley said he was taking the building off the market.

Former Gov. Robert Ehrlich tried to unload the iconic office building after Hurricane Isabel revealed its vulnerability to weather elements in 2003; flooding in the storm's wake displaced tenants for more than a month. The building, which opened in 1977, is also considered outdated by today's real estate standards, experts say, and is in need of significant upgrades.

The World Trade Center contains nearly 300,000 rentable square feet. With the arrival of DBED, the building will be more than 70 percent occupied, state officials said.

"This move puts DBED where it belongs -- at a visible location in Baltimore's Inner Harbor, a compelling example of Maryland's business development," said Donald C. Fry, president and CEO of the Greater Baltimore Committee, in a statement. "It strongly supports the administration's decision to retain this flagship building and put it to effective use in promoting and growing our state's economy."

The uplands rendering you get a brief glimpse at in the video looks like a suburban development. I was hoping for more density there than the former uplands development and certainly more than shown in the rendering.

I'm excited for the North Ave. redevelopment to really get underway. I think we'll see quite a few great rehabs and new developments alike. Thanks for posting these. Good find.

An interesting move. I've been in the current DBED office and compared to the WTC, this will be a step down in the appearence made by the offices (regarded as important when impressing business contacts). Better views, but cheesier offices. I hope they have plugged the leaks in the basement. During Isabel, the seals in the entrance failed, the loading dock became an aquaduct and all of the electicals in the basement were ruined. Now they have some board and sandbag things that are supposed to keep water out of the lobby, but the basement entrance looks unchanged.
