BUSINESS
By Kevin Thomas | January 15, 1992
The Belvedere Market is about to lose its fourth major establishment soon, when Flowers at Belvedere leaves to join two former market tenants who have opened new stores nearby on York Road.All four stores -- the others are Faidley's Seafood, Wernig Country Meats and Debbie's Produce -- had been at the market since it opened five years ago. Their departure is being blamed on high rents at Belvedere.But Wernig, Debbie's and Flowers will be neighbors again at Drumcastle Center, where plans are under way to create an Old World-style market using two adjacent stores.

It was about two years ago that Victor "A Legend In His Own Mind" Frenkil first heard the terrible word. It was a word he was not used to, a word that no previous mayor of Baltimore had ever spoken to him.The word was "no."No, Mayor Schmoke said, he would not pour more money down the bottomless pit that was the Belvedere Hotel. There would be no more city loans.The renovation of the Belvedere Hotel was not a bad idea. Nor was the location that terrible.It was simply that Victor Frenkil was lousy at running the Belvedere Hotel.

U.S. Bankruptcy Judge James Schneider yesterday denied a request to halt sales of the Belvedere condominiums and dismissed a case brought by a local attorney who has been investigating the connections between a company that bought the Mount Vernon landmark in March and another company that backed out of an agreement to buy it.The action means Belvedere Realty Corp., a group headed by Elliott Sharaby, is free to proceed with sales of 112 residences and other office, meeting and retail space inside the 13-story building at 1 E. Chase St.Judge Schneider dismissed the case after attorney Kenneth Davies, the bankruptcy trustee representing the hotel's former owners, agreed to drop a motion to halt sales and to take no further action to interfere with sales of the property.

Schneider, who is to weigh the deal against another favored by the current owner of the Belvedere.The second proposal would allow the hotel's chief owner, builder Victor Frenkil, to retain title of the hotel while selling control of it to the Baltimore International Culinary College.

The court-appointed trustee for the Belvedere Hotel asked a U.S. Bankruptcy Court judge yesterday to approve the sale of the financially troubled Baltimore landmark to a Florida corporation for $5.5 million.If the Florida-based Hertz Group Inc. buys the Belvedere, the sale would net only about half of the more than $10 million the owners owe to their principal mortgagors, which includes the city of Baltimore. But the city would retain ownership of the Belvedere's restaurants, bars and food service facilities -- worth at least $3.5 million, according to John J. Hentschel Jr., the city's real estate officer.

More than 50 pending sales in the Belvedere condominiums could be halted at least temporarily if a U. S. bankruptcy judge grants a motion filed by a Baltimore attorney who claims the sellers may be defrauding the court.In a motion filed this month, the attorney, Kenneth Davies, asked the court to prevent any more settlements until he has a chance to complete an investigation involving Belvedere Realty Corp., a New York-based group that bought the hotel last spring for $3.8 million and began marketing it as condominiums.
