Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake's administration is asking Baltimore's City Council to award a hefty tax break to a long-stalled west-side development project. Under legislation introduced by the administration, apartments to be built as part of the "Superblock" project near Lexington and Howard streets would receive a deep discount on property taxes for 20 years. City officials said it would not be feasible for the developers to build the 269-unit apartment building and 650-space underground garage without a tax incentive.

First, city officials lured Bank One to the 1000 block of E. Fayette St. across from the main post office, where the company opened a check-processing facility last year that is expected to generate 500 jobs. Then came Chesapeake Advertising, which recently broke ground on a building in the 900 block of E. Fayette, with plans to employ about 75 people when it opens. Now Baltimore Development Corp. officials are trying to decide who will purchase three remaining properties on East Fayette Street and two others on Baltimore Street to join those businesses in what's called the East Fayette Street Corridor Business Center.

I WAS WALKING across Fayette Street to catch a bus home. The rain had stopped, and old downtown Baltimore, as opposed to our totally recast harbor, presented itself at 10:30 p.m., not an hour when the well-trod corner at Howard and Fayette is supposed to look its best. Only a few minutes earlier, I was into a memory reverie, thinking about the old Town Theatre, where I saw Around the World in 80 Days and some other 1950s Technicolor banquets. I thought about how my grandfather went on about the vaudeville and burlesque clowns he'd enjoyed here.

A glimpse over the television director's shoulder shows the next transformation involving the corner of West Fayette and Monroe. Two video screens, each the size of a compact disc box, display views from two cameras capturing a scene distilled from a book detailing a year in a West Baltimore neighborhood overrun by illegal drugs.Actors are portraying the sadness of a real father and the alienation of a real teen-age son. In take after take the boy turns away from his father's soft-spoken plea to stay in school, stepping off the curb outside the corner bar, turning his back on his old man, dropping his dreadlocked head and walking out of the picture.

WITH WATER to one side and other barriers to growth on the other, it's logical that downtown would begin to expand eastward well north of the harbor. The city should do whatever it can to jump-start that process.The City Council is considering a plan to acquire underused land on Fayette Street near the main post office for development into a business park. The property has the added advantage of being in Baltimore's federal empowerment zone, which means businesses locating there could take advantage of federal tax incentives.

Hundreds of East Baltimore residents who have been without water since Saturday will have to wait a few more hours while city public works crews repair another problem that arose Monday afternoon, a Public Works spokesman said. City crews have repaired problems with smaller lines that arose after an earlier water main repair and were restoring running water when the sealing on the repair clamps failed, Bob Murrow of the Baltimore Department of Public Works said.
