Cincinatti's Carew Tower is awesome. And they have more than just ten towers there. It's nice and dense and building a nice new big waterfront area next to the stadiums as well as this new tower DD is talking about. Plus, I think the tower will the tallest in the city when built, but I can't remember what the actual height will be when finished. It seems like I read somewhere that it would rise over 574 ft.

Do they have something we don't have? I hope it's not as FucUgly as the rest of Ohio QUOTE]

cincinnati is a cool town and it has quite abit in common with baltimore. i don't think you'd like to hear an ohioan's opinion of baltimore, as i'd suspect it's not very good.

i say good for cincy on getting a new tower!

we should be rooting for all cities to get towers and big investments. as people become more comfortable with reinvesting in downtown, we'll get more development... ultimately in baltimore.

land in maryland is a finite resource and with rising fuel costs, baltimore city is once again becoming the future. development in other cities is only going to strengthen that.

I've never been very optimistic about the Red Line because of this. I don't understand why Americans are not a lot more pissed about the squandering of our wealth. The Feds have cut the subsidy level, they are not entertaining new subway proposals and the State's Transportation Trust Fund is severely stressed. The Red Line needs to be built right through a dense sector of the city so it's going to be expensive. None of this adds up to good news. I'm curious to see what the final outcome will be but I'm not holding my breath waiting for it to start.

Bouknight told MTA officials that they don't appear to care about the residents.

If it is underground how is it destroying your neighborhood? The metro goes through some very expaensive areas on the Wisconson ave line. While there was some intial community opposition, you would have no idea a metro line was beneath it,

Harbor holds key to new city slogan
June 15, 2008
The headline on Edward Gunts' column "Harboring success" (June 9) reminded me of when the city was selecting a new slogan and came up with the generic, unimpressive, forgettable, commercial-sounding "Get In On It."

My sister (a retired English teacher) was visiting from out of state, and came up with a much better city slogan: "Baltimore: Harboring a Great City."

Va. real estate investor to sell downtown office tower
Baltimore Business Journal - by Daniel J. Sernovitz Staff

Wachovia Corp. is one of the largest tenants at 7 Saint Paul St.

Harbor Group International LLC wants to sell the Wachovia Tower, an office tower in downtown Baltimore it bought for $50 million in January 2003.

The timing could be difficult for Norfolk, Va.-based Harbor Group, given the economy and a tightening in the credit markets. But real estate experts say the 24-story building at 7 Saint Paul St. could still fetch a fair price and has already attracted interest from a handful of out-of-state investment firms.

Representatives from Harbor Group could not be reached for comment.

The building's sale would mark Harbor Group's exit from the city's office market. The investment trust sold two other buildings, the Mercantile Bank & Trust building at 2 Hopkins Plaza and the W.R. Grace building at 10 E. Baltimore St., for $78.9 million in spring 2007.

Wonder how long that Cincy building has been on the drawing board or how long it's been delayed if at all.

Cormony Development, developer of Gateway South, finally has their website up with new renderings of Gateway South: http://www.cormonydevelopment.com/pr...way-south.html

Phenomenal development, I think.



More renderings on the site, but this is the only one I could post here.
