SBE&R is based in Baltimore and they've done a lot of historic renovation projects there. They've been doing a lot of work up here in Providence of late, Rising Sun Mills, The Plant (not their project, but they are the contractor), South Street Station (proposed), and most recently they've announced a $300 million plan to renovate a few dozen buildings and build more in Providence, ALCO.

I'm wondering what people in Baltimore think of what SBE&R has done there. Have their projects turned out well? Would you consider them a positive thing for your city? Are they a good corporate citizen, do they fund other things in the city?

Streuver Bros, et al have been here for a long time and Bill S is somewhat of a local celebrity. He is an eccentric visionary who has been leading the parade on redevelopment here since about 1980. His local projects include re-habbing many houses in Federal Hill, redevelopment of failed and obsolete industrial buildings, new buildings and now involvement in some of Baltimore's largest major projects (Harbor East, Harbor Point). Almost all of his projects have been successful and have generally fit into their community context well. In addition, since he tends to lead parades rather than follow them many of his projects have given others confidence that an area is fit to redevelop so once Bill comes others follow. He is generally responsive to community input, does good quality work and has a good track record for judging the market so his projects make money too. You might guess that he is my favorite local developer.
