In recent decades, hundreds of millions of dollars have been invested in Baltimore redevelopment, and those investments - combined with positive economic trends - have sparked a wave of privately financed revitalization in neighborhoods across the city. From Locust Point to Charles Village and Hampden to Highlandtown, housing prices have soared and commercial development has followed. But neighborhoods across Baltimore - nearly 20 percent of its residential area, according to the city's estimate - remain mired in blight.

Most Saturday mornings find me inspecting progress as an 1873 cotton duck textile factory makes its $45 million transformation into 84 apartments, offices and two restaurants. Known as Mill No. 1, at 3000 Falls Road, the complex seems to sit astride an invisible line between Hampden and Remington. It's taken nearly two years for this exceptional Jones Falls Valley industrial landmark to take its bows. The first wave of tenants moved in earlier this year; Evergreen Health is the first large commercial tenant.

Hoping to set the stage for the future renewal of one of the city's most distressed areas, officials are moving to acquire about 200 abandoned properties around the historic American Brewery building in a long-neglected corner of East Baltimore. The 30-odd properties closest to the brewery - which has been vacant for more than three decades but is slated to be renovated as the local headquarters of a nonprofit social services agency - will be shored up to prevent further deterioration, while the rest will be held until the city decides what to do with them.

When two boys, ages 12 and 13, accidentally shot an innocent 13-year-old girl, Monae Turnage, the mother of one of the boys didn't even call 911 to try to save her ("Woman charged as accessory in Turnage case gets $500,000 bail," Nov. 1). Instead, she now stands accused of teaching her son to cover up his crime, hiding the gun and even helping him carry the girl's body into an alley to go out with the trash. Prosecutors say she also told him to call the dead girl's mother to tell her that her child had not shown up at his house to go roller skating with him and his friend.

The American Brewery's gates swing open this afternoon for an event that has been 35 years in the making. The nonprofit group that has spent millions on the East Baltimore landmark is celebrating the painstaking restoration of one of the city's most visible Victorian structures, where brewing tanks went dry in 1973 - and the pigeons moved in. "There had been so many false starts, I don't think the community believed the brewery project would ever happen,"...

East Baltimore's vacant American Brewery campus could become the headquarters of a Maryland nonprofit social services provider or be restored as a beer-making facility targeting the Hispanic market under two proposals received by the city for the property. A third proposal by a Baltimore-based underground utility company offers to turn a bottling plant on the 2-acre city-owned site in the 1700 block of N. Gay St. into the company's headquarters. But the company said it is not interested in the 19th-century brewhouse that is on the National Register of Historic Places.

The developers who have taken on the old city-owned American Brewery in East Baltimore are going to save an architectural colossus of the city's past. This is not a project for the faint of heart. The ornate, five-story complex on North Gay Street has been vacant for 34 years, its cavernous interior in such disrepair that a city appraisal put its worth at zero. And the area around it resembles a wasteland of vacant, lead-poisoned rowhouses. Even at the $5,000 purchase price, the brewery was hardly a bargain.

The former bottling plant in the Abell neighborhood has been all but abandoned for years. The Beverage Capital Corp. sign outside has faded. The white office walls have yellowed. A nearby mechanic uses the space that used to hold the bottling line as a parking lot. But when J. Hollis Albert tours the cavernous 48,000-square-foot facility, he imagines new life inside - brewers tinkering with formulas, bubbling fermentation tanks, beer bottles being filled and capped. Albert and Stephen Demczuk, owner of microbrewery Baltimore-Washington Beer Works, are in the final stages of opening Peabody Heights Brewery, which would be the city's first large-scale brewery in more than 30 years.

It is the clearest sign of the direction historic preservation may be going: Even a building called Government House, a 19th-century mansion in Baltimore's Midtown neighborhood, is now in private hands. While some history buffs were horrified to learn last week that cash-strapped Baltimore is considering the sale or lease of 15 other historic properties — prompting fears that "For Sale By Owner" signs would sprout on such icons as the Shot Tower and the War Memorial Building — preservationists say that, increasingly, this is what cities and states must do to save them.

Workers removed scaffolding from the old American Brewery's towers, revealing a 19th century exuberance of restored copper, slate, brick and brownstone. Emerging from a $21.2 million restoration, the East Baltimore landmark is ending 35 years of neglect and vacancy - and nail-biting about the fate of this vulnerable icon of Baltimore's industrial past. "It is simply breathtaking," said C. William Struever, the Baltimore developer whose firm has the renovation-construction job and removed the scaffolding last week.

With the massive beer tanks removed and the once-exposed rooftops patched and braced, developers of the American Brewery building in East Baltimore are moving forward with a project they hope will spark a revival in the neighborhood. More than two years after the city selected a team to rehabilitate the 121-year-old brewery, on North Gay Street amid a sea of vacant rowhouses, hammers are swinging on the site and developers estimate that they will reopen the building in spring 2009. Humanim Inc., a Columbia-based nonprofit social services agency and the lead developer of the project, intends to move a portion of its offices to the brewery when construction is complete.
