I had a horrible Baltimore Nightmare last night!

I dreamed that a development team put forth a design for a 755ft glass and steel tower with a beautiful crown that lit up brightly at night on the One Light Street site. The BDC rejected the design because it wasn't brick and didn't have a hat or anything resembling a sail at the top of it. I actually woke up with sweat on my brow!

On a different note, when I look at the new 300 east pratt tower rendering, it kind of reminds me of the Cordish "Pez" design at the base. Similiar concept.

I found this article about Bolton Yards on the Bolton Hill neighborhood website. It states that Bolton Yards will break ground in January 2008, and be completed by September 2008. Not sure if that info had been posted on the forum before.

UNIVERSITY OF BALTIMORE ANNOUNCES DEVELOPMENT AT BOLTON YARDS

"In January 2008, Bolton Yard will be the site of the groundbreaking for a new mixed-use development that will include residences, retail space, and a multi-story, 1,300-space parking garage ... to be completed by September 2008," according to an article by Jason Lewis in the UB Post, a University of Baltimore publication.
"The development at Bolton Yard," Lewis reports, "will provide the university and the surrounding community with other amenities including a grocery store, retail space, and apartments, in addition to the new parking garage."

"The kinds of amenities that you'll see in there will make this campus more attractive to everyone that goes here, works here, or lives around here," said Chris Hart, UB's manager of public information. "I don't think you can assign a dollar value to that."

The retail developer, Williams Jackson Ewing, is marketing the location as "the cornerstone to a vibrant community of world-class venues of exposition, entertainment and academics." The sales brochure Is on its website at: http://www.wjeinc.com/BoltonYard/BoltonYard.htm.


Phase I is planned for the corner of Oliver Street and Mt. Royal Avenue on the existing UB parking lot that hosts the ArtScape food vendors. It will include 200 luxury apartments and 40,000 sq. feet of retail at street level, including a grocery store and the parking garage. Phases II and III envision additional residences and retail located on property now occupied by a U.S. Post Office facility.

Representatives of the University of Baltimore will be invited to a future MRIA meeting to discuss their plans.

This was also on there. It's the diagram for a 300k renovation for Sumpter Park in Bolton Hill. I'm not familiar with what it looks like now, but the new plans look nice.

Development decidely OFF the waterfront excites me muchly.

That said, I say June 2008 for groundbreaking at the earliest. You know developers that record for construction timelines!

I really want to see the West side recover. So much potential over there but it has been so greatly neglected. I could see it being a great shopping district or even another great residential area with lots of restaraunts nad bars.

Great news for Mt Vernon

A little more residential in Mt Vernon would add street traffic and solidify the neighborhood. I believe plans call for 500-600 apartments,

BCCC mulling development options for its harbor campus
Baltimore Business Journal - February 2, 2007by Daniel J. SernovitzStaff

The Bard Building at 600 E. Lombard.

Baltimore City Community College officials are considering several possible options for their downtown Harbor Campus, prime real estate situated between two growing retail complexes and just a block away from Baltimore's Inner Harbor.

College spokesman Herbert C. Sledge Jr. said turning parts of the Bard Building at 600 E. Lombard St. over to retail uses such as a restaurant are among the possible options that could emerge from the process.

If I woke up in a cold sweat about that, it would be time to move "out in the country".

This sounds really good. I ride past this lot on the light rail and it's such a bleak space as it is, especially with the UB and MICA campuses having developed so much in the past few years. I hope their plan includes some place to put the food and local band stage during Artscape and I hope that the existence of this doesn't create some sort of antipathy towards Artscape.

Thats one of the reasons why most of the Baltimore/Maryland Bashers are always trying to sabatoge Business/Economic/Revenue Growth because their main Goal/Agenda is to chase off the Middle/Upper Class people from populating Baltimore/Maryland in hopes thyat they will chose to live somewhere like Virginia, The Carolinas, Georgia, or Texas.
