Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake - who has gained a national reputation for welcoming Hispanic families to Baltimore - joined a growing chorus of Maryland officials Tuesday raising concerns over a proposal to turn a vacant office building in the city into a shelter for immigrant children largely from Central America. Rawlings-Blake said she has "serious concerns" about an idea being explored by the Obama administration to retrofit the massive office complex on North Greene Street known as Metro West to help contain a recent surge in unaccompanied children who are crossing the border illegally.

First Potomac Realty Trust has bought two fully occupied office buildings in Columbia for $16.1 million, commercial real estate firm Cassidy Turley said Tuesday. Hillside Center I and II on Hillside Court, leased to government contractor BAE Systems and other tenants, was sold by Corinthian Realty Partners. The two-building complex has a total of 86,000 square feet. The sale is the second in Columbia in the last two weeks for Cassidy Turley, which also helped arrange the $13.6 million sale of Stevens Forest Green, an 82,400-square-foot office building that New Boston Fund bought earlier this month.

Federal officials are eying a large, vacant office building near Lexington Market on Baltimore's west side as a potential shelter for children caught entering the country illegally, an idea that met with resistance from several Maryland lawmakers on Monday. The children, most of whom are from Central America, are part of a surge of immigrants that has overwhelmed holding facilities along the Southwest border in recent weeks and forced the Obama administration into a frantic search to find shelter space elsewhere.

A parking lot at Charles and Eager streets in midtown Baltimore is being considered for redevelopment as a $3 million retail and office complex. Baltimore's Commission for Historical and Architectural Preservation approved preliminary designs this week for the project, known as 1000 North Charles. If completed by late 2012 as planned, it would be the first time in more than 50 years that the prominent site has been anything but a parking lot. Plans by SMG Architects of Baltimore call for the building to rise three stories along Charles Street and two stories along Eager Street, with about 28,000 total square feet of space and an eco-friendly "green roof.

Baltimore electrical engineering company Gill-Simpson plans to build an office complex on 13 acres in Owings Mills, the first new office construction in that part of the county to start this year and a sign to some observers of better days ahead for the stalled commercial real estate market. The company, which attributes some of its growth to the federal military base closure and realignment, is scheduled to break ground this week on a 40,000-square foot headquarters, the first phase of a three-building project.

The city is considering building a multimillion dollar office complex near City Hall to consolidate various agencies currently leasing space throughout downtown.A city development group led by Housing Commissioner Daniel P. Henson III recommended to Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke on Tuesday that a cost-benefit analysis be completed to study the issue."The basic assumption is that if we had more city-owned office space, ultimately we could save money for the city, because the government's cost of money is cheaper than the private sector," Henson said.

A planned $1.5 billion redevelopment of Midtown Baltimore's State Center complex came under harsh criticism Thursday from legislative analysts who told lawmakers that the current public-private deal "is not in the best interest of the state." In two afternoon briefings, for the Senate and House of Delegates budget committees, nonpartisan analysts questioned the viability of the State Center expansion, arguing that it is based on excessively rosy assumptions of commercial and housing demand in the city.

A Baltimore Circuit Court judge's decision to void the proposed $1.5 billion public-private partnership to redevelop the State Center office complex in Baltimore puts the state in a severe bind. It now faces both the immediate, practical concerns about how to replace aging and inadequate office space that is increasingly expensive to maintain, and the broader implications of a ruling that could, theoretically, put at risk other public-private partnerships that are under way or in the works.

A few years ago I raised my hand at an auction and bought a box of 19th-century sepia-toned landscape photographs. After hours of looking at them, I detected that they had been taken not far away, in the heart of the Jones Falls Valley in Baltimore City, before an elevated highway and 125 years of development intervened. The other morning I was standing in the bottom floor of the old cotton warehouse at the Mount Vernon Mill on Falls Road, an amazing property that will make its debut this spring as Mill No. 1, a residential and office complex.

— It's a risky business reading too much into anything that happens during spring training, but the grand opening of the newly renovated Ed Smith Stadium and an equally grand offensive performance by the Orioles clearly lifted the spirits of everyone in attendance — most notably Orioles owner Peter Angelos. "If we can only duplicate that up north," Angelos said after the Orioles' 12-6 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays, "that will make everyone happy. Hopefully, it's a harbinger of things to come.

After 18 months of public silence, developers of the David Taylor Research Center outside Annapolis have submitted their plan for transforming the former Navy site into a waterfront office complex. The detailed plan for the $250 million development on the Severn River sticks closely to the plan county officials saw before transferring the 46-acre property to Annapolis Partners in October 2002. The proposed complex - one of the largest and highest-profile waterfront developments in recent county history - would have 515,000 square feet of office space in two- and three-story towers, a 100-room inn, a small retail area and almost 2,000 parking spaces.

For more than a decade, Tim Yusufov has run a thriving pharmacy in a Reisterstown Road strip mall. But when drugstore giant Walgreens bought the complex a few years ago, he started looking for a new address. "We knew that we were going to be kicked out eventually," he said. Now he's off to bigger digs, with the help of a $300,000 grant from the Baltimore County Department of Economic Development. Health-Way Pharmacy will relocate from Bedford Avenue to a new $2.4 million, two-story retail and office building it is developing at Reisterstown Road and Sudbrook Lane.

Developers of a planned multi-screen movie theater, restaurants, offices and a store complex in central Towson have cleared the most difficult planning hurdles, completed a years-long process of securing the necessary land, and just this month won voters' endorsement for a $6.2 million county contribution to a new parking garage — yet the Towson Circle III project appears stuck in neutral. Baltimore County officials have said the project — across Joppa Road from the Towson Town Center — is crucial to an effort to remake the county seat into a bustling center of apartments, condominiums and nightlife, but the project seems mired in the continuing effects of a national economic slump.
