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.

In the age of smartphones and tablets, delivering restaurant food can be more than just taking calls, making the stuff, bagging it and sending a guy out in a rundown Toyota. On the fourth floor of a refurbished broom factory in Canton, a room full of young men in T-shirts, polo shirts and Orioles caps work at a long table laden with computers on OrderUp, a food service with a technology twist.

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.

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?

But, thanks to their creators' deep knowledge of the area, these yachts are especially at home in the bay.

At age 100, the commercial building at 120 W. North Ave. has enjoyed prosperity and suffered humiliation. It's now soon to become an arts center in the Station North neighborhood, whose transformation I've been watching for the past few years. Perhaps its worst hour happened in 2012, when the Fire Department ordered it closed. Inspectors took one look at the outdated 1914 wiring and said, "Shut it down. " Its main tenant, the Single Carrot Theatre , promptly moved out. "The electrical box was like something out of a Dr. Frankenstein movie," said Laurens "Mac" MacLure, director of the Baltimore Arts Realty Corp., who gave a tour of the roomy structure this week, as his group has been completing plans for a $6 million upgrade.

David Hart is a bit of an anomaly in the world of fashion. In an industry dominated by larger-than-life personalities, fickle taste and cutthroat politics, he prefers to play nice, stay cool and let his work do the talking. "I really appreciate all the people that I've met and the relationships I've built," said Hart, 32. "I treat people the way I like to be treated. I really respect the talent of the people I've worked with. As a result, people respect me as well. " His approach has ingratiated him with the fashion elite.
