The Wild Orchid cafe has closed in Annapolis. The closing was confirmed by Lou Hyatt, one of the owners of the Severn Bank building at 200 Westgate Circle, where the Wild Orchid was a tenant for about two years. Owned by Karen and Jim Wilder, the Wild Orchid was more successful in its original home, the bungalow in Annapolis' Eastport neighborhood that is now home to Vin 909. Hyatt said the plans are to use the space occupied by The Wild Orchid, and before that Greystone Grill, as office space.

I am sure all our elected officials work very hard to develop the Towson community. The excavation, construction and announcements of future plans attest to their efforts. I appreciate Councilman Marks effort's at downzoning, saving parks and recreation areas. In spite of his efforts, somewhere in our governmental structure it was decided that Towson, our at-one-time residential community, should become a commercial destination community. Are we becoming a brick-and-mortar monument to politicians and developers?

Owings Mills-based developer David S. Brown Enterprises Ltd. plans to construct a 30-story mixed-use building on West Baltimore Street on the eastern edge of the University of Maryland, Baltimore campus. A parking structure and four-story building would be demolished to make way for the mid-block tower, which would be flanked on its western side by the historic Abell Building. Early plans for the structure were approved by the city's architectural review panel Thursday. The building, at 325 W. Baltimore St., is planned to contain roughly 100,000 square feet of office space, about 225 apartments and above-ground parking for approximately 400 vehicles.

The company redeveloping a 100-year-old building in Baltimore's Remington neighborhood received a $100,000 grant from the state to support environmental remediation, the Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development announced Wednesday. The grant money, which will support about a quarter of the remediation expenses Seawall Development expects to incur, is from the Brownfield Revitalization Incentive Program, the state said. Seawall Development plans a $3.8 million renovation of the building at 2600 N. Howard St. When the rehab is complete, the 22,000-square-foot building will include 14,000 square feet of office space, a theater, and a restaurant and butcher shop run by Spike Gjerde, the restaurateur behind Woodberry Kitchen and Artifact Coffee, the state said.

The vacant lot now known as Harbor Point sure is a beautiful piece of property. To its west lies the newly developed, thriving and beautiful Harbor East. To its east sits one of Baltimore's finest neighborhoods, Federal Hill. And to its south, that which Baltimore treasures most, our lovely harbor. It is sad that this 27-acre lot now lies empty and tarnished - as those who wish to develop it keep reminding us - by toxic waste and a lack of proper road access. I look forward to the day when this property is developed and populated by mixed-use development.

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.

Developer J. Joseph Clarke has come up with a half-dozen ideas over the past 20 years - a hotel, corporate headquarters, residences, office space - for a prominent downtown site three blocks from the Inner Harbor. But none took hold. He hopes this time will be different. So do city leaders whose patience is wearing thin with Clarke and the owner of the site, a parking lot at the corner of Light and East Redwood streets "I wish it weren't the case that it's gone on this long," said Clarke, president of J.J. Clarke Enterprises Inc. "We think that this is the best proposal that we can make for this site at this time.

A vacant building in a prime location at Annapolis City Dock is about to be sold. An investment group led by Mark Ordan, CEO of Sunrise Senior Living, has signed a deal to buy the former Fawcett Boat Supplies building at 110 Compromise St. The building sits in a key spot in downtown Annapolis and will figure into the city's plans to redevelop the City Dock area. Terms of the deal have not been disclosed, and Ordan said it won't be final until the proposal passes a five-month study period "to make sure we have the support and cooperation of the city and the various constituents.

Standing amid his $44 million refurbished textile mill, now nearing completion, developer and one-time mayoral candidate David Tufaro observed a bird wading in the Jones Falls nearby. "That's our great blue heron," Tufaro said. Water birds fly up and down the Jones Falls between the two sides of the mill, which straddles the stream. So he insisted that an image of one be included on the rooftop sign that faces Interstate 83, announcing the presence of the commercial-residential complex called Mill No. 1. When residents begin moving into the converted mill early next month, the valley between the Baltimore neighborhoods of Woodberry and Hampden will shift from being a predominantly industrial area to being an extension of the surrounding neighborhoods.
