One of Baltimore's classic retail emporiums will soon see new life -- as a co-headquarters for one of the country's largest charitable organizations. Upper levels of the former C.J. Benson and Co. furniture showroom at 501-515 N. Charles St. are being converted to offices and meeting space for the Annie E. Casey Foundation. This is the second building that Casey has improved in the Mount Vernon-Cathedral Hill area since moving from Connecticut to Baltimore in 1994, along with the former municipal building it currently occupies at 701 St. Paul St. A private philanthropy organization dedicated to building better futures for disadvantaged children in the United States, Casey makes annual grants of more than $185 million.

During the last decade, when other hoteliers seemed to be building on every available block, executives of Loews Hotels gathered in conference rooms wondering what they were missing.These days, they've stopped wondering, glad to have chosen a slower course of expansion, said Jonathan M. Tisch, Loews Hotels president and chief executive officer."In the l980s, when other chains were undergoing expansion, we were skeptical about our financial footing," said Tisch, after addressing the Greater Annapolis Chamber of Commerce Friday during the group's annual breakfast.

In a career spanning more than half a century, New York architect Hugh Hardy says he has never worked on an arts-related project like the one his office is designing in Maryland: Harford County's $60 million Center for the Arts. What sets it apart, Hardy said, is the bucolic setting and the mixture of cultural spaces and other facilities that will be under one roof. It's not just an arts center, he says. "It's a community center. It will always have a foundation in the arts. But it's a true community center.

"From time to time, we need a large space," said Ed Thomas, spokesman for the information technology company. "At this point, we have to travel to Baltimore to find that space.

Tuesday night in Harbor East, Baltimore's city-within-a-city, hundreds of men and women celebrated Valentine's Day, eschewing advice that the lovers' holiday would have been more enjoyably observed on the previous Saturday night. The sidewalks and streets, the restaurants and hotels were jumping after work, and the energy spilled across Eastern Avenue to Little Italy and the restaurants there. A colleague of mine trying to reach the CVS on Aliceanna Street had an Oh-my-God moment at the scene.

The figure comes from a consultant's plan to overhaul the 15 library branches and the headquarters building. The system is trying to adapt as the role of its facilities changes and patrons call for more digital access and community space.

The Greater Baltimore Committee's idea for an expansion of the downtown convention center coupled with a new, attached arena and expanded Sheraton hotel tower is generating understandable excitement among the group's leaders. It would solve a number of downtown Baltimore's issues at once, come with a major commitment of private financing, and boost the city's lucrative tourism industry. GBC President Donald C. Fry said this week that he expects the feasibility study being conducted by the Maryland Stadium Authority will support the project and that his group will ask the General Assembly to approve $2 million to $3 million in planning money next year.

The state will lend an additional $4 million to Rocky Gap Lodge & Golf Resort to finance improvements aimed at improving business at the struggling Western Maryland attraction, state officials said yesterday. The low-interest unsecured loans are to be supplemented by an additional $565,000 from the project's bondholders, who have agreed to postpone interest payments for more than a year. Those investors - three mutual fund companies - have said they will not foreclose on the project through 2006 and will consider restructuring the project's debt, state officials said yesterday "The restructuring is part of our plan to get the Rocky Gap facility to operate within its own cash flow," said Robert C. Brennan, assistant secretary for financing programs in the state's Department of Business and Economic Development.

In recent years, commercial property owners have had to dangle new amenities in front of prospective tenants to gain an edge in an increasingly competitive office-space market. It might be parking, a lobby restaurant or a fitness center. For David W. Kornblatt, that something extra is nothing new, because he was one of the first in Baltimore to build a conference center with a spectacular vista for tenants, in his 28-story St. Paul Plaza office tower, in 1989. Kornblatt hopes to take his venture a step further by promoting his meeting rooms with a view to outside groups.

A proposed zoning change that would alter a key tool intended to spur redevelopment of the U.S. 1 commercial corridor and allow 140 more apartments in the highway median in North Laurel was approved on a 3-2 vote Monday night by the Howard County Council. The vote allows the owners of Ashbury Courts, a 148-unit, mixed-use complex built on the site of a former trailer park, to build a planned second apartment building on the north end of the parking lot, but this time without the accompanying retail space required under the original zoning.
