The state's highest court has sided with residents who have been fighting a housing development proposal at a Pikesville cemetery in a years-long case. The Maryland Court of Appeals ruled in a decision late last month that a covenant dating to 1913 "clearly and unambiguously" requires all 200 acres of the Druid Ridge Cemetery to be maintained and operated as a cemetery. A development group had hoped to build homes on 36 acres that do not contain any grave sites. The decision reverses previous decisions by the Baltimore County Circuit Court and the Court of Special Appeals, which had sided with the developers and cemetery owners.

When the Four Seasons Baltimore opened last year on the downtown waterfront, it became one of the city's most expensive hotels, with rooms starting at $279 per night. Now a local development group plans to open a boutique hotel featuring rooms that will be far more pricey - averaging nearly $650 a night - in a part of town away from the harbor and not known for commanding such rates. The $16 million project, called The Ivy, is planned to open by spring 2014 inside the former Inn at Government House property at Calvert and Biddle streets in Mount Vernon.
