Baltimore based Cordish Cos., which has built signature projects in the Inner Harbor and casinos in Florida, might compete for a slots license in Maryland if voters approve a November referendum legalizing the gambling machines, officials said. In an e-mail to The Baltimore Sun, company chief David Cordish said his gambling division would "look hard" at possible licenses in the city, Anne Arundel County and Cecil County. "Gaming is one of our three major divisions, and these three locations are in our backyard and are well suited to our capabilities," Cordish wrote.

Owners of Pimlico Race Course are asking the city for the flexibility to develop a 700-room hotel, large theaters and concert halls in addition to its planned slots emporium, triggering an uproar among some neighbors. "We're talking about a huge entertainment complex, and that is not what has been fully discussed with the community, nor with [legislators]," said Del. Samuel I. Rosenberg, a Democrat whose district includes Pimlico. "People feel very justifiably blindsided," he said. Walter Lynch, project manager in charge of redeveloping Pimlico, said there are no plans to build a hotel or theater complex in the near future but Pimlico wants flexibility to eventually develop those or other facilities - regardless of whether slot machine gambling is legalized.

The city zoning board voted yesterday to allow the Redwood Trust, a new nightclub downtown, to operate with after-hours entertainment. The ruling allows Redwood Trust - located in the historic Mercantile-Safe Deposit and Trust Co. building at Calvert and Redwood streets - to operate as a tavern, restaurant and after-hours entertainment complex with live music and dancing. Owner-operator Nicholas Piscatelli, a local developer, testified before the zoning panel yesterday that the city needs such a venue to fuel tourism in the downtown area and to continue revitalization northward, from the city's waterfront.
