HarborView Towers, a condominium complex on the Inner Harbor, aims to become an iconic part of the Baltimore skyline now that it has revamped the beacon atop its east tower. "[It's] new and exciting, and I think people are just going to love it," said John Cochran, president of the council of unit owners at HarborView Towers. The new beacon on the building off Key Highway uses energy-efficient light-emitting diodes, or LEDs, which are not only environmentally friendly and cost-efficient, but offer the opportunity for ever-changing displays.

At Stadium Place in Baltimore City, an affordable condominium project was reluctantly terminated because its target population of "empty nesters" could not afford the sharp increase in property taxes. The price was right. The plan was to apply a share of condominium proceeds to supportive services for the 300-plus low-to-moderate income elderly already residing in four apartment buildings on site, sponsored by GEDCO and Enterprise Homes. The concept was to retain down-sizing homeowners in Baltimore City and attract new families to purchase their homes.

Rehbein in 2006, officially filed in 2007 and tied up in appeals between the courts and county agencies ever since. It appears the dispute will continue, as the chief opponents intend to appeal this most recent decision to the Circuit Court.

A developer's plan for a 36-unit waterfront condominium with boat slips that has pitted neighbor against neighbor for years in Bowleys Quarters has been rejected by a Baltimore County hearing officer. In a 45-page opinion based on days of hearings, John E. Beverungen denied the Galloway Creek condominium proposed by Milton A. Rehbein III, who for decades has owned a marina at the site along Burke Road on the Bowleys Quarters peninsula. While Beverungen agreed with some of the developers' arguments, he rejected the project on grounds that it conflicts with the county master plan and neighborhood community plan, and violates a law that specifies where such projects are allowed in Bowleys Quarters.

Baltimore's ethics board asked a city councilwoman to stop contacting city agencies on behalf of the Inner Harbor luxury condominium outside her district where she lives with her boyfriend. The five-member board concluded that Councilwoman Rochelle "Rikki" Spector did not pressure officials to drop mold citations against the tenants' association of the Harborview condominium complex, but that her actions caused "uneasiness" among city employees. "Some City employees who were not directly contacted by Councilwoman Spector felt that her interest in the citations was potentially inappropriate when they found out that she lived at Harborview and that a different City Councilmember represented the District where that building is located," the board chair wrote in a letter to a tenant last month.
