The owner of an aging downtown Baltimore hotel hopes to breathe new life into the property with a gritty, cool makeover that incorporates graffiti, sleek, white couches and a chain link fence. The multi-million dollar upgrade of the Brookshire Suites at Calvert and Lombard streets gives a new street twist to the 1958 building, which began as a parking garage but has been a hotel since the 1980s. Modus Hotels saw an opportunity to stand out in Baltimore, which has traditionally been dominated by big names with conventional reputations, such as Hilton, Marriott and Hyatt, said Aaron Katz, CEO of the Washington, D.C.-based owner of 11 hotels.

Workers completed subsurface repairs Tuesday on the stretch of East Lombard Street closed by a water main break last week, clearing the way for a possible reopening of the vital downtown artery as early as Thursday. Adrienne Barnes, a spokeswoman for the city Department of Transportation, said workers were starting to backfill the roadway between Commerce and President streets with sand, gravel and stone. Also being repaired was South Gay Street between Pratt and Water streets. The next step will be to repave the affected blocks - a job that could be completed in a day if the weather is warm and sunny.
