Accounting firm RSM McGladrey said Monday that it is moving its Timonium office to the Legg Mason tower in Baltimore's Harbor East, relocating the 350 employees based in Baltimore County to the city. It said it signed a 10-year lease for just under 39,000 square feet and plans to move next summer. The company, which wanted a more visible base of operations, noted that its employees won't all be in the new offices because many work in the field or from home. - Jamie Smith Hopkins | The Baltimore Sun

Eagerness to spread the word about kidney disease is enough to drive local residents up a wall — or down a tower. On June 19, some will take to the side of the 24-story Legg Mason Tower in Harbor East, then rappel down one of Baltimore's most prominent skyscrapers as part of a fundraising approach by the National Kidney Foundation of Maryland. Rappel for Kidney Health is designed to raise awareness about a disease that affects one in nine Marylanders. Each participant must raise at least $1,000 in advance.

Technology company Hope LoanPort could have signed a conventional lease for its new headquarters in Baltimore. But the nonprofit doesn't work in a conventional way. Its 10 employees live in three states. Some work at home part-time but need office space to meet with clients or review documents. Sometimes a few employees need to meet in an office to work on a presentation. And the company's growth makes it difficult to gauge when it will need more space or how much more. Hope chose a relatively new but growing option, a "flexible workplace" center.

One of Baltimore's largest law firms, Ober Kaler, will move its headquarters by next April from the Sun Trust Bank building at 120 E. Baltimore St. to the 100 Light Street office tower. Lexington Realty Trust, which owns the 35-story tower through an affiliate, announced Thursday that Ober Kaler has signed a lease for 94,213 square feet over six floors of the office tower, formerly known as the Legg Mason building. The tower is one of downtown Baltimore's tallest, and the lease is the largest announced since Legg Mason moved last year to a new tower in Harbor East, vacating 330,000 square feet on Light Street.

Thirty-three years after an endangered peregrine falcon named Scarlett was released from her breeding facility and raised foster chicks and later her own hatchlings on a 33rd-floor ledge of a Baltimore skyscraper, the bird's heirs are still bringing more peregrines into the world. The latest young falcon, or eyas, hatched earlier this spring and is expected to test her wings next month. She is the youngest in a nearly unbroken succession of close to 100 young peregrines to fledge from the same aerie on the former USF&G and later Legg Mason tower, at 100 Light St. Craig Koppie, a raptor biologist with the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, is keeping watch over the family.

Several iconic city buildings will go dark for part of Saturday night — but not because of an electricity shortage. Rather, they will be marking Earth Hour, when companies and citizens around the world turn off their lights for one hour to show support for environmental action. In a mayoral proclamation, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake on Friday urged Baltimore residents, businesses and government agencies to mark the occasion by turning off all unnecessary lights between 8:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. Saturday.

Transamerica Tower in downtown Baltimore now has Transamerica employees working in it - with more to come. After months of preparation by the insurance and financial services company, 340 workers arrived Monday for their first day at 100 Light St. following a whirlwind move of their computers, telephones and other office necessities from Mount Vernon over the weekend. More workers will follow in two weeks, bringing the total to about 800. For Transamerica, the mostly short-distance move is an opportunity to bring all its Baltimore workers under one roof in its headquarters town - and to put its name on the top of one of the city's tallest buildings.
