Baltimore's Projects

Recommended Posts


A new arena is to be constructed in Baltimore to replace the 1st Mariner Arena. i tried to plan a renovation of the arena, but I found out that the arena has served its useful life and must be demolished. The parking garage next to it may be demolished also.

Have you got a picture of the building? I'm trying to place it in memory and can't recall it at all. Has it got any features worth remembering?

Good question. I'm not in Baltimore, but I'd love to see more participation from the Charm City. Please feel free to post any news you might have about Baltimore here. I'll see if I can find out something about the place you mention. In the meantime, don't be a stranger here.

Morgan Stanley will capitalize on the market growth. They have 450 employees in Baltimore and will be adding 900 more over the decade once they new Harbor complex is complete.

This also helps Fells point, because that office space they were going to use is being made into apartments to attract residents to be close by to the new offices.

I found a few more projects thought I would post. I do not know that much about the area, like I said I will be new to the area soon so I do not know much history. Hopefully these get the people going and get the talking going.

Project Overview:

*High rise relates in detail, height, and site consideration to neighboring historic buildings

*Proximity to light rail, central business district, retail and entertainment satisfies residents

this is outside of Baltimore in Silver Springs, but a huge project.

This broke ground not to long ago and is the new main headquarters for United Therapeutics, its not a huge building but still goes over 200 feet in height.

It is quite remarkable to see the progress in downtown Silver Spring. The area is practically bristling with new developments- most of which have fairly good elements of urbanism. I'm overdue for another trip to Baltimore. The number of new condos and hotel rooms there is astonishing. So far, the market indicates that this level of building activity can be suppported. I hope this will be the case in the future.

Update on new development.

City approves funding for downtown Cityscape redevelopment

Mayor Sheila Dixon has approved a $4.5 million land deal clearing the way for two new hotel chains in downtown Baltimore, the Baltimore Development Corp. said Thursday.

The development, known as Cityscape, includes seven properties in the same block as the Brookshire Hotel at 120 E. Lombard St., though the hotel is not included in the project.

As the Baltimore Business Journal first reported Feb. 22, the project has since been modified and is now slated to feature a 175-room Hyatt Place, a 125-room Hyatt Summerfield Suites, 6,500 square feet of retail space and a 200-space parking garage.

Those features would be built into a new, 30-floor building, which would also include 150 apartments and a spa and health club.

More detail renderings should be coming soon.

Silver Spring: According to a construction official I spoke with a month ago, the tower will be residential. Can anyone confirm that?

Baltimore: What is being along Lombardy, in front of the M&T Bank building?

WESTPORT Development

The best thing about this development is a grocery store in the downtown. So many cities miss out on this and cripple the entire feel of the city and "city-living". Hopefully the rest of the development adds a lot of local business and some niche type shops.

Picture of the Hilton Hotel from the Camden Yards. To be honest it is very boring and plain. You would think they would add some kind of character to the side of the building. Seems like a bad use of prime land.

The new Hilton Baltimore looks as though it would be at home in Volgograd or Omsk. I don't think it's a terribly good addition to the city in terms of architecture. I'm fairly siure it will be successful in terms of filling its rooms.
