A development team has been selected for a vacant 1.1-acre lot in Charles Village owned by the Johns Hopkins University. Armada Hoffler, a real estate construction and management firm based in Virginia Beach, Va., will lead the development of a mixed-use complex on the site at the southwest corner of 33rd and St. Paul streets, according to a recent statement by the university. Johns Hopkins bought the land in 2009. Beatty Development Group LLC and Skye Hospitality LLC, both based in Baltimore, will be working with Armada Hoffler on the project, the university said.

The city's design panel on Thursday approved a master plan for a large mixed use development in East Baltimore opposite the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. The proposal by developer MCB Real Estate LLC calls for two buildings along Eastern Avenue: a six-story apartment building, with ground floor retail and an interior courtyard, and a smaller, one-story shoppping structure, with a large 250-spot parking lot farther east. If market demand is strong, MCB could create a taller mixed-use site in place of the smaller building.

As the Station North arts and entertainment district matures, community leaders are setting their sights on another long-promised part of the neighborhood's renaissance - market-rate apartments. The neighborhood, once a handful of nightspots surrounded by seedy parking lots, has grown into a small hotbed of restaurants, theaters and bars, with activity pushing up Charles Street and east and west along North Avenue and thousands flooding the area this summer for concerts and other events.

Prospective developers of Belvedere Square laid out a vision for the future yesterday that looks something like the past. The development team of Struever Bros., Eccles & Rouse, Manekin Corp. and the Hawkins Group pitched a plan to nearby residents that lacks a big-box retailer or a large grocery store, and seeks instead to restore the open-market style that made the 105,000-square-foot retail complex a thriving neighborhood center when it opened in 1986. The $24 million proposal calls for a market cafe setup, with vendor doors opening up to a sidewalk.

The development team that walked away from a plan to redevelop the former Bainbridge Naval Training Center in Port Deposit wants a new chance to present its ideas for the 1,200- acre site. "The Manekin team will give a presentation of its plans [for the property] Dec. 8," Cynthia Rossetti, chairwoman of Bainbridge Development Corp., announced Thursday. She said the meeting would be held at 7 p.m. in the Technology Center at Cecil Community College in North East. Rossetti said she did not know the details of the Manekin team's presentation, but she assumed that it would cover the team's plans for the entire site, including the Berkshire tract, which was to be the location of a technology park.

The team picked to redevelop the 62-acre O'Donnell Heights public housing project in Southeast Baltimore has started construction after closing on $20 million in funding for the rental homes in phase one. The Michaels Development Co. and AHC Greater Baltimore, the master developers, said Thursday that Bozzuto Construction Co. will build 76 townhomes with funding secured in January. The largest piece was raised by selling federal Low-Income Housing Tax Credits. Eventually, the approximately 300 units of low-rise public housing on site will be torn down, but that is still years out. Earlier phases of the redevelopment project will rise on vacant land.

Matt Collins was perspiring heavily. The 19-year-old Friends alumnus said he doesn't usually get nervous playing polo, but, on the first day of a February training session in West Palm Beach, Fla., the thought of riding in front of the country's best players was intimidating. "Owen Rinehart and Nick Snow, they were all just sort of watching us, just criticizing everything we're doing. I was like sweating and shaking. Once I got out there, it was fun, though. " That was Collins' first experience as a member of the United States Polo Association's development team.

Baltimore development officials moved a step closer yesterday to seizing the long-vacant Chesapeake Restaurant to make way for a mixed-use urban renewal project at the gateway to the city's Charles North arts and entertainment district. The Board of Estimates' approval of a "quick take" condemnation of the North Charles Street property for $770,000 could lead to a lengthy dispute between the city and the current property owner. But city officials said any dispute would not delay redevelopment of the site, across from Pennsylvania Station and next to the thriving Charles Theater and a popular restaurant.

In response to Baltimore County Councilman David Marks' recent letter about the proposed Nottingham Ridge Outlet Mall, I would again point out the project's appalling lack of community input ("Marks: Consider the alternative to the outlet mall plan," June 23). As Councilman Marks is aware, I have been a long-time supporter of both his work with the Baltimore County Council and his volunteer work within the community. In fact, I believe our working friendship began in 2008, when he was president of the Perry Hall Improvement Association and I was president of the Perry Hall Middle School PTSA.

The owner of the Eastport Plaza shopping center in Annapolis and a development team from Baltimore plan to build a $45 million, 200-unit apartment complex at the site of the neighborhood's former theater. Plans call for a seven-story complex with a mix of apartments and small stores, said Dan Lederberg, general manager of L&L Investments LLC. In 1961, Lederberg's grandfather, Charles Liff, built the shopping center at the nearly 7-acre site off Bay Ridge Avenue. The family has retained ownership and Lederberg manages the shopping center through the company Eastport Plaza LLC. The shopping center - at the intersection of Bay Ridge and Chesapeake avenues - saw its Crown Eastport Art 2 cinema close in 2004.

The city's Board of Estimates is to vote Wednesday on a plan for a hotel on the historic Recreation Pier in Fells Point, calling for the city to alter an ordinance to allow the Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank-backed hotel to proceed without a public promenade around the property. Instead of the promenade, Sagamore Development Co., controlled by Plank and Chevy Chase developer Marc Weller, would be required to make improvements to Thames Street, from Ann Street to South Broadway and in front of the pier, according to the agenda for Wednesday's Board of Estimates meeting.

The city is seeking development ideas for a 16-acre group of properties close to Old Town Mall, an East Baltimore shopping strip that has struggled despite being the target of revitalization efforts for more than 40 years. The request for proposals, expected to be released Thursday, involves two city-owned parcels, a 7.5-acre triangle at the corner of Ensor and Orleans Streets and the roughly 8.7-acre former site of the Somerset Homes, a public housing complex that was torn down in 2009.

City officials on Monday will consider issuing $35 million in bonds for the massive Harbor Point development - among the final steps before construction can begin on the $1.8 billion waterfront project. Such bond issues by the city's Board of Finance, which manages Baltimore's debt, are typically considered routine. But some are urging the board not to approve the financing until all environmental concerns associated with the former chemical plant site are alleviated. The Harbor Point development team has received approval from the Maryland Department of the Environment to begin preliminary construction, but hasn't yet gotten permission to penetrate the cap containing chemicals in the soil.

A developer's request for permits to build a bitterly disputed waterfront housing project on Kent Island has been put on hold after state officials discovered a "business relationship" between a high-ranking Maryland environmental official and a lawyer for the development team. In a written statement, the state Board of Public Works said Friday that it would delay action on the Four Seasons project pending a review of the relationship between the lawyer and the board's longtime wetlands administrator, Doldon W. Moore Jr. "The Board of Public Works recently became aware of a business relationship between the wetlands administrator and an attorney representing the applicant for the tidal wetlands license that is referred to as Four Seasons at Kent Island," it said.

Developers of the Baltimore Financial Centre, the 32-story office building planned for the southwest corner of Redwood and Charles streets and in part of the bed of Redwood Street between Charles Street and Wine Alley, have redesigned their project in an effort to obtain city approval.According to city officials and representatives of neighboring property owners, the development team has altered the design of the 32-story tower so that it would take up one lane of Redwood Street rather than two. They say 10 feet has been shaved off plans for the north side of the building so that it would not project so far into the road bed.The change comes less than two months after members of Baltimore's Planning Commission declined to approve a City Council bill that would authorize the city to sell two lanes of Redwood Street to the development team.
