City officials on Monday will consider issuing $35 million in bonds for the massive Harbor Point development - among the final steps before construction can begin on the $1.8 billion waterfront project. Such bond issues by the city's Board of Finance, which manages Baltimore's debt, are typically considered routine. But some are urging the board not to approve the financing until all environmental concerns associated with the former chemical plant site are alleviated. The Harbor Point development team has received approval from the Maryland Department of the Environment to begin preliminary construction, but hasn't yet gotten permission to penetrate the cap containing chemicals in the soil.

Construction to convert an old chemical plant site to a glittering waterfront development could begin next month after the Baltimore City Council gave final approval Monday to more than $100 million in taxpayer assistance for the controversial Harbor Point project. "We want to build a great project that is successful for the whole city," the developer, Michael S. Beatty, said after the vote. "It will create thousands and thousands of jobs. " Officials of his firm said they hope to break ground on the project's signature skyscraper - a new regional headquarters for the energy giant Exelon - on Oct. 15. Council members voted 11-3, with one abstention, to approve $107 million in tax-increment-financing bonds despite months of protests, objections from downtown business leaders and a late effort by community groups, activists and unions to amend the legislation.

When developer Michael Beatty comes home from a hard day of reshaping the city's skyline, first with Harbor East and now with its neighbor, Harbor Point, he relaxes by cooking. "I love seeing projects through, but they take so long to get done," Beatty said. "So I cook, and I have results in an hour. " Not always good results, though, as Beatty learned the night he decided to make baguettes. They came out of the oven golden and fragrant - but also heavy and inedible as bricks, he remembers telling John Paterakis, his partner at the time at H&S Properties Development.

"You follow me, kid?" An old friend of mine, educated at Hotchkiss and Haverford, used to ask that all the time, sometimes after every two sentences, like when he showed me how to make a martini or how to work the clutch in a '74 Fiat or when he tried to explain what arbitrage was. He had a head for cocktails, cars and finance, and he talked real fast, with a cigarette on his lip. He'd start explaining something complex, like bond trading, and stop...

Those who are dead set against the proposed $107 million in tax increment financing bonds to cover roads, parks and other infrastructure associated with the Harbor Point project are bound to find disquieting the news that developer Michael Beatty plans to buy the first installment of the bonds himself. To the deal's biggest critics, it sounds like self-dealing and begs the question of why Mr. Beatty can't just pay cash for the infrastructure instead of getting the city to issue bonds.

After hearing from scores of citizens opposed to the deal, a Baltimore City Council committee approved a plan Wednesday night to give millions in taxpayer assistance to the $1.8 billion Harbor Point development. The 3-0 vote came over the objections of protesters who demonstrated outside City Hall. A disgusted Councilman Carl Stokes, the committee chairman who has fought the subsidies, left the room as the vote was being called. Councilmen Warren Branch, William H. Cole IV and Edward Reisinger voted in the favor of the plan.

Dale I. Beatty vividly remembers his first glimpse of a Fisher House, a home away from home for wounded troops and their families. The former North Carolina Army National Guard staff sergeant had lost both legs in an explosion in Iraq in 2004 and was a patient at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington. His wife and two young sons moved to a Fisher House nearby. "I rolled in on my first day off pain meds," he said. "I was sick and in a wheelchair. But right away I thought, 'This place is awesome.' I just wanted to sit on the couch.
