The Gay and Lesbian Community Center of Baltimore (GLCCB) has sold its Mount Vernon headquarters, the organization announced Wednesday. The decision to sell the building was made "to address ongoing community concerns with the inadequacy of the GLCCB's present space," according to a statement from the group's board of directors. The building's sale comes two months after the GLCCB opened a new public resources center on the ground floor of its building, and it appears future expansion and changes may be on the way. Executive director Matthew Thorn said in a statement that the 36-year-old organization is interested in a new space that can offer "a venue for interested community organizations to work in concert in a shared space.

The developer of Harbor Point announced Wednesday the selection of a Virginia-based contractor for the $165 million construction of the first tower on the site. Beatty Development Group's choice of Armada Hoffler to build the new regional headquarters of energy company Exelon continues a partnership established during the construction of Harbor East, which Beatty Development Group President Michael Beatty led before founding his own company last year. Armada Hoffler, a Virginia Beach-based real estate investment trust, completed Harbor East's Four Seasons Hotel, Baltimore Marriott Waterfront Hotel and Conference Center, Legg Mason headquarters and Spinnaker Bay apartments.

The Baltimore City Urban Design and Architectural Review Panel should agree to the request to redesign the Exelon Corporation building at Harbor Point made by the developer ("Developer proposes to convert some Exelon office space to apartments," Sept. 27) upon one condition - that they build the building higher! It has been decades since a skyscraper of significant height has been built in Baltimore City. Not only would a gleaming new tower be a reflection to the world that this city is on the move, but it would also conserve valuable downtown real estate.

In the contest between bird and traffic camera, it's a question of which will blink first. A persistent osprey - likely in league with a mate - has been trying since late last week to build a nest smack dab in front of a traffic cam keeping watch on the eastbound U.S. 50 approach to the Bay Bridge. The Maryland Transportation Authority has removed the nest three times, only to have the determined bird or birds return. Late Tuesday afternoon, a branch - possibly the beginnings of another nest - could be seen in front of the camera, lying on the steel gantry over the highway.

Letter to The Aegis | May 10, 2012
Editor:  In response to the person who wrote a letter condemning the county for building a new Emergency Operations Center, let me ask:  What was the most important building in the county in February of 2010? Not a school. There was a blizzard - schools were all closed.  What was the most important building in the county in August of 2011? Not a school. There was a hurricane - schools were all closed.  What is the more important building in the county between the middle of June and August?

Baltimore State's Attorney Gregg L. Bernstein got to work on his re-election campaign in a low-key way Saturday, knocking on the doors of likely voters in Northwest Baltimore and asking for their support. It was one of the first campaign activities Bernstein has organized this year and while he confirmed last summer that he intended to run again, he has been reluctant to talk about the political side of his job. On each doorstep he made no big promises about the future but pointed to his record in office.

It is unclear why Dan Rodricks would insult historic preservationists by dismissing our efforts in 1988-1989 to save the beloved, completely reusable McCormick building as "ridiculous and quaint" ( "Investment in Baltimore, beyond our expectations," April 15). How does the prospect of a repurposed McCormick building differ from the reuse of the Baltimore Trust Company he then lauds a few paragraphs down? His assertion that preservationists advocated retaining McCormick as a vacant building is a total invention to suit his purpose, whatever that might be. Adaptive reuse was already common practice 25 years ago, even an expectation when possible.

The Edgar Allan Poe House and Museum today looks onto a tree stump and a grassy lot, but that view could soon change with the construction of two large, orange-accented apartment buildings. It's the first phase of a long-awaited redevelopment of the Poppleton area. The go-ahead last week from the city's urban design and architecture review panel is one of the first steps forward since ambitious plans to overhaul a 13.8-acre portion of the neighborhood were announced almost a decade ago. Just west of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, the $800 million, 10-year redevelopment of Poppleton is supposed to build on the expansion of the University of Maryland's BioPark and ultimately create more than 1,000 residential units, a new charter school, shopping and parks in a neighborhood once riddled with crime and drug activity.

Tourists never come to see the cherry blossoms in West Baltimore, in the heart of what local residents warmly refer to as "the hood. " But they could, as far as Marvin "Doc" Cheatham is concerned. "We could have people ride through, neighbors selling hot dogs and hamburgers, saying, 'You don't got to go to Washington for cherry blossoms!'" Cheatham said this weekend from his front steps in the 1600 block of Appleton St. The block has about 40 occupied homes, 11 boarded-up vacants, and about a dozen cherry trees - planted by the city in the 1970s, as Cheatham recalls.

Tooloulou is moving from Lauraville to Belvedere Square. The Cajun eatery will open in Belvedere Square's main market building later this spring, according to chef-owner Shawn Lagergren. Lagergren said he considered operating Tooloulou at both Belvedere Square and the Harford Road location that he opened in January 2011. But he decided he didn't want to entrust either location to anyone else. "We were going to try to keep [the Harford Road location] going," Lagergren said, "but if I can't be there every day, I would worry about potentially disappointing customers.
