Twenty years after opening its first large residence for students, the Maryland Institute College of Art plans to build a $16.5 million addition that will increase the number of undergraduates living on campus and help revitalize Baltimore's North Avenue corridor and northern Bolton Hill. College officials intend to break ground this fall on Commons II, a five-story building with 62 apartments that can accommodate about 240 students. When it opens in the fall of 2013, MICA will have on-campus housing for more than 1,000 students, up from practically none in 1991 and enough for more than half of its undergraduates.

The distressing sight of boarded-up rowhouses along Druid Hill Avenue, between Baltimore's biggest park and North Avenue, makes it hard to believe that this decayed neighborhood was once home for many of the city's most successful African-American strivers. From the 1920s until the late 1940s, this was the famed Sugar Hill, the namesake of a similarly upscale part of Harlem. Prominent lawyers and educators lived in the modest, cramped two-story rowhouses near Druid Hill Park; so did waiters, bell captains and postal workers.

The 2 a.m. shooting where five people were wounded outside Odell's early Monday does not surprise us at all. Since 1976, when the late Odell Brock opened his night club in the first block of East North Avenue, half a dozen people have been slain outside, often in arguments over narcotics.In 1987, federal agents padlocked and confiscated the club after its then owner, Philip A. Murray, was arrested and convicted for his involvement in a major West Baltimore heroin ring. Much of that ring's money had been laundered through Odell's, prosecutors said.
