One of the newest and biggest industrial parks being built in Baltimore is headed for a foreclosure auction Friday, a victim of weak tenant demand amid the recession. Hollander 95 Business Park in Northeast Baltimore broke ground in fall 2007 with plans to generate 462 jobs. Developers Hollander Rock LLC, which bought the 51-acre site from the city for $4 million, had planned to build a warehouse, distribution and manufacturing center over three years. Only the 82,000-square-foot warehouse has been completed, and tenants have moved into half of the building.

The students said they know jaywalking on the major thoroughfare is dangerous - three people have been struck and killed by drivers there in the past six months - but they said they've become accustomed to drivers yielding to them on campus.

Asking for money near Baltimore restaurants, shops or parking meters would be outlawed under legislation some City Council members say is needed to make residents and visitors feel safer. The proposal, which heads to the full council for its consideration on Nov. 4, faces opposition from advocates for the homeless and free-speech groups, who say broadly limiting panhandling violates the Constitution. The effort is an outgrowth of an attempt by Councilwoman Rochelle "Rikki" Spector to crack down on those who ask for money in traffic - which is already illegal.
