I'm pretty sure Greg Brady tried this, but maybe it was Parker Lewis. We just couldn't figure out why Cordish and Phillips were being so coy about their relationship - weren't they in love like everybody thought? It's their business, of course, and there any number of explanations for their public denials, including the possiblity that Cordish has always thought that Phillips was super stuck up and that Phillips wouldn't have moved into the Power Plant if it were the last place in the whole Inner Harbor!
Ed Gunts' story may help put their collective reticence in perspective. Gunts reports that Cordish wants to make up to $9 million worth of improvements to the Power Plant to attract far-out new tenants and in exchange is asking the city for $3 million in free rent and its own bathroom.
