Water restrictions remain in place at the Hanover Square Apartments in Otterbein, where one resident was diagnosed with Legionnaires' disease in mid-July, according to the city's Health Department. The July 18 case is the only one associated with the 1 West Conway Street tower, where the city is monitoring efforts to test and clear the water, said Health Department spokesman Michael Schwartzberg. He said he did not have more information about the patient's status. Legionnaires' disease, a type of pneumonia, spreads through the inhalation of tiny droplets of contaminated water.

When workers attached a construction elevator to the Art Deco brick skin of downtown Baltimore's 10 Light Street this week, this amazing commercial landmark began its path to becoming a home to residents in a newly forming city neighborhood. I navigated the construction fence — parts of both Light and Redwood streets are temporarily closed — and found Cary M. Euwer Jr., the building's new owner, at work in what had been a former Bank of America office. Euwer is president and CEO of Metropolitan Partnership, the Reston, Va., development firm that bought the old Baltimore Trust Co. property and is now converting it to 445 apartments.

As I walked into the building generations of Baltimoreans knew as 11 East Chase, my memories of this venerable structure flashed back. The mosaic tile lobby, beamed ceilings, the oak parquet floors, fluted columns, wood paneling, marble trim and fireplaces all never looked better. There was a difference. After months of restoration, this grand matron truly sparkles. It now retakes its place alongside other nearby treasures, including its neighbor, the Hotel Belvedere, as well as nearby institutions - the Maryland, Engineers and Mount Vernon clubs - and the neighborhood's churches and private homes.

A few words about the "poor door. " Maybe you already know about this. Maybe you read on Slate, saw on Colbert or heard on NPR how a developer qualified for tax benefits under New York City's Inclusionary Housing Program by agreeing to add to its new luxury building on the Upper West Side set a number of "affordable" apartments. How the company won permission to build that building with two entrances, one in front for the exclusive use of upper-income residents, another, reportedly in the alley, for residents of more modest means.

Taylor Property Group wants to build a modern five-story apartment and office building on Linwood Avenue close to Canton's O'Donnell square. The Baltimore-based company is negotiating with neighbors about the $7.5 million project, which has drawn concerns about how it will fit into the neighborhood. The new building would replace a warehouse, which the Taylor family purchased in 2013 for $1.5 million. Ross Taylor, Taylor Property's general manager, said he has met with neighborhood groups three times so far about the 1000 S. Linwood Ave. project, which would add 21 one- and two-bedroom apartments, as well as roughly 7,500-square feet of office space, to the popular East Baltimore neighborhood.

Mitch Kuykendall wasn't thinking about the shrinking federal budget or the latest partisan squabbles on Capitol Hill when he climbed a ladder propped up against a burning apartment building in Maryland City last July. He was, he said, just doing his job for the federal government. The federal firefighter and his colleagues, who are based at Fort Meade, were recognized with hundreds of other government workers at an event in Baltimore County this month tied to Public Service Recognition Week.
