Crestar Bank is shopping for a new home in Baltimore.William C. Harris, chairman of Crestar Financial Corp.'s Maryland region, said the headquarters building it inherited when it acquired Loyola Capital Corp. two months ago, doesn't fit the company's image."It is just an old building," Mr. Harris said. "It doesn't really make the statement that we would like it to make as far as Crestar's arrival. It is just not in the financial district. We feel a full-service bank ideally should be somewhere else."

To former Sheriff Grover N. "Sam" Sensabaugh, three years is far toolong a wait for a county-run police force.But to just about everybody else on the commissioners' police force study committee, putting the first patrol officers of a Carroll department on the streets ispractically impossible before January 1995.As the 10-member committee met Wednesday night, they hammered outearly projections on the time and expense necessary for establishinga county police force.And while all of them agreed that some start-up time was needed -- to hire a planner, build or renovate a headquarters building, draw up policies and procedures, hire a chief and interview officers -- Sensabaugh didn't seem to think that the processrequired the two years that others in the committee were proposing.

Board of County Commissioners President Doug Howard last week asked the Board of Education to add the Winchester Building - the headquarters building for the entire school system - to its list of buildings that will be reviewed for possible sale. Howard made the request to the school board's Facilities Study Group, which is working to determine if money can be saved by reducing the number of facilities the school system operates. Howard said he was concerned that the group would recommend closing one or more county schools without considering moving the central office staff to other sites available around the county.

In May, Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke announced that the city would move its police headquarters from the fringes of City Hall Square to the former Hecht Co. building on Howard Street. Now the plan is running into trouble.This became evident when persistent questioning by Jacqueline McLean, the new city comptroller, and City Council President Mary Pat Clarke first led to a postponement and then to the downsizing of a $625,425 architectural contract for the new facility. Yesterday, that contract was pared down to a $180,000 assessment of the police department's space requirements that will also analyze how a police headquarters would affect traffic and parking in the Howard Street corridor.

The $1.3 million cost of converting from its in-house processing to hiring an outside contractor will be offset by the gain on the sale of its building, which Provident will lease for at least 12 years, the company said.

The Rouse Co., which built Columbia, and whose headquarters is a centerpiece of the planned community's downtown, may be leaving its lakefront location after failing to renew its lease - a possibility that has local leaders in shock. The company has been a dominant presence for more than 30 years, operating out of its large white building - designed by architect Frank Gehry - with a sprawling terrace overlooking Lake Kittamaqundi. Rouse, which is a major shopping center developer nationwide, has leased the space since 1974 but is fighting with its landlord about whether the contract was renewed properly.
