The St. Paul's Schools in Brooklandville have broken ground on a $5.5 million arts center that will house a theater, art gallery, music rooms, publications office and studios.

The 21,000-square-foot center will be built between the St. Paul's School and the St. Paul's School for Girls. James R. Grieves of Grieves & Associates is the project's architect. He is known for his work at Center Stage, the Walters Art Gallery and the Marine Mammal Pavilion of the National Aquarium in Baltimore.

Henry H. Lewis Contractors Inc. is the general contractor and Robert A. Kinsley Inc. is the site contractor.

The building is designed to serve theater, filmmaking, music, sculpture and printing programs at both schools.

The center is expected to be completed in late 1991.


Gardiner Realty and Development Co. has completed work on the first phase of Riverwatch at Priest Bridge, a new office-warehouse center in the Priest Bridge Business Park in Crofton.

The project includes two single-story buildings, each containing 23,353 square feet.

The developers said space in the complex can be adapted for offices, small businesses, research and development, production or warehousing. Each building is constructed with an all-brick exterior and contains nine 32-foot-wide bays.

A total of four buildings are planned for the site.

So far one tenant, Maryland Elevators, which services and repairs elevators, has leased space in the complex, according to Jack Rider with Gardiner.


Signet Bank in Baltimore is providing the financing for Crossroads Professional Center, a 53,500-square-foot office building being constructed in the Dorsey Hall Business Park in Columbia.

The bank is financing the project with a $6.4 million acquisition and construction loan, Signet officials said.

The project is designed to accommodate health care services. St. Agnes Hospital is the lead tenant, leasing 28 percent of the space.
