A company that has hired the Maryland Stadium Authority's top executive was picked yesterday to manage construction of the agency's biggest project, a $107 million sports arena at the University of Maryland, College Park. The stadium authority said its selection of Gilbane Building Co. had nothing to do with the pending move of Executive Director Bruce H. Hoffman, who is scheduled to resign April 13 and join Gilbane four days later as a regional vice president based in Laurel. Hoffman recused himself from the unanimous vote, which was conducted by conference call.

At the Peabody Conservatory of Music, the most important of the five senses is sound. So before administrators could launch a $24 million renovation and expansion of Peabody's Mount Vernon campus, they had to figure out how to keep construction noise to a minimum, so it wouldn't interfere with classes and concerts. Their solution was to complete construction in phases so the noisiest work is completed during the summer, holidays and other periods when classes aren't in session. They're also limiting the hours and locations of construction activity during the academic year so it's tolerable to those on campus.

Look out the window from the reception area outside John Paterakis' office and beyond the aging industrial foreground you can barely see the shiny towers of the Inner Harbor's present. But step into the windowless conference room and you can easily see the Inner Harbor's future.Paterakis isn't your everyday developer, any more than the $350 million Inner Harbor East "new neighborhood" he plans to build just south of Little Italy is an everyday project. He was making piles of dough when other developers were little kids -- real dough, because John Paterakis is a commercial baker whose companies make everything from Giant brand bread to McDonald's hamburger rolls.

On America's birthday, a few lucky Inner Harbor visitors got to witness the birth of a new public space on Baltimore's shoreline.What was most remarkable about the event was the spontaneous manner in which it unfolded, during the Fourth of July fireworks show Monday night.But after the first widespread use of this prominent new perch, which is still technically under construction, it's not likely to be the city's best-kept secret much longer."We were the first ones to bum-rush this place," boasted Edward Escandon, a Fells Point resident who led the crowd that broke through a construction fence to get there.
