Since Legg Mason won't be using its existing building anymore, what will be done to the Legg Mason Tower?

Not Really U/C Yet

I CAN'T BELIEVE IT!!I WENT TO THE FOUR SEASONS CONSTRUCTION SITE TODAY AND ITS COMPLETELY BLOCKED OFF BY FENCING..SOMETHING IN MY HEART TOLD ME THAT IN THAT FENCING,WAS A HUGE HOLE...They're NOW making the 4-5 levels of the undergrown parking garage.But the thing im mad about is that I dont even know what level they're on.I guess they're taking they're time because I didnt even see the Legg Mason construction site even though the fencing is completely surrouned by BOTH the Four Seasons AND the Legg Mason.So basically,the fencing is like a HUGE ring!But the thing is that I dont consider this as Construction...at least not yet.I TAKE CONSTRUCTION AS WHEN YOU FINALLY SEE THE BUILDINGS RISE!In this case,I Dont think that will start happening from until Early December to Early January.I ALSO THOUGHT OF SOMETHING ELSE!!WITH THE FOUR SEASONS AND LEGG MASON TOWERS IN OUR SKYLINE,THAT AREA WILL NO LONGER BE A GOOD FIREWORKS SITE..well at least I dont think so.Does anyone else think that these babes will completely block the Fireworks site?

I believe they'll simply lease out the office space to others.

Locals would probably kill me for saying this, but I think the current LMT is an eyesore and a relic of a dated era. Knock it down and put up a 300m+ glass-and-steel monster.

I know the locals will probably kill you for making that statement because the building is too young for demolition and hasn't lived a full life yet. you'll have to wait until the 2020s for that to happen.

Even so,to demolish a 529 ft skyscraper is extrememly complicated,let alone,expensive.To demolish Baltimore's tallest skyscraper will disrupt office workers from other buildings and people walking around or near the skyscraper and I COMPLETELY agree with jim856796,it just hasn't lived its full term yet.As much as I would LOVE to see a 300+ meter skyscraper downtown,demolishing Legg Mason isnt the answer.Demolish the Commerce/Alex Brown Tower instead..J/K!!

If you're talking about commerce Place, that building has not yet lived a full life, also.

Title really should be changed from APP to U/C - this baby is on its way. Now if there could just be some fill between HE and the IH - Scarlett Place is kind of a weak filler IMHO.

I walked around the Legg/4S construction site ( a lot of movement ) but you couldn't see much through the fence. I talked to one of the workers ( hoping he let me snap a few shots of the site ) but he was going back to work. I asked him what they were building , he told me about what we already know ( Legg Tower 24 stories , Four Seasons 45 stories ) my one and only regret is that I forgot to ask him the completion date anyways hope you guys like them.

45 stories sounds good. Maybe this tower will break the 500' mark.
