John Paterakis Sr. didn't believe it when Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke told him nearly two decades ago that Harbor East's Marriott Waterfront Hotel would spur revitalization from the Inner Harbor to Canton. The city had picked Paterakis' H&S Properties Development Corp. to build the hotel, launching a parallel career for the baker and developer. Today, Paterakis marvels at the upscale shops, luxurious living spaces and top-flight office space set to line the southeastern Baltimore waterfront - and already booming along it. "You have to give a lot of credit that he was right," said Paterakis, president of H&S Bakery Inc., which grew from a two-man operation that opened in 1943 to a baking empire spanning more than two dozen states.

Like the best Italian mothers, Rose Savalino Uddeme spent a lot of time cooking for her kids when the family lived off the corner of Central and Eastern avenues on the edge of Little Italy in the 1960s. One of her go-to meals was a staple of hard times: an egg cracked into simmering tomato sauce thick with peas. "It was one of those growing-up meals," said Uddeme, 75, who waited tables in Little Italy and Highlandtown before retiring to Essex. "It was cheap. " A less frequent dish, something special when there was a little extra money in the grocery purse, was braciole.

H&S Properties Development Corp. plans to push its Harbor East development east across Central Avenue with an expanded Whole Foods Market, a possible department store and apartments on two sites, baker-turned-developer John Paterakis Sr. said Friday. The developer will convert the one-story, brown-painted H&S Bakery distribution center into one or two floors of retail space, with apartments above, Paterakis said. H&S Bakery revealed intentions last month to move the center to an East Baltimore office park, freeing up the real estate by the end of 2014, he said.

The facility, bounded by South Central Avenue and South Eden, Fleet and Aliceanna streets, lies on the edge of the fast-growing shopping, hotel and business district. Its future home, meanwhile, is a development that was once in bankruptcy and has struggled to attract tenants.

Plans to create an upscale hotel with shops and restaurants on the edge of Baltimore's Harbor East neighborhood are reinforcing city leaders' belief that the thriving waterfront community will continue to spur growth east of the Inner Harbor. A vacant cinder block warehouse at Central Avenue and Fleet Street would be transformed into a 205-room hotel with ground-level boutiques and restaurants under a plan by two area developers. Baltimore-based Chesapeake Real Estate Group LLC, a retail developer that bought the one-story warehouse in November, has teamed up with Bethesda-based Englewood LLC and could start construction as early as spring 2013, Chesapeake partner Neil J. Tucker said Wednesday.

Yes, I did want to see it, folded up in a dresser drawer, in a mauve-colored bedroom, in an east-side rowhouse. Say what you will about the wisdom of going into journalism, but one day I'm trying on a deposed mayor's mink coat, the next I'm having a look-see at the City Council president's undies. I think this is what Mencken was talking about when he said that news reporting was "the life of kings."
