Roland Park Place is attempting to sell an old church next to its property - the same church it tried to tear down for parking five years ago against strenuous objections by residents who live in the area. "I don't know that we've had any serious offers of late," said Teresa Snyder, president of Roland Park Place, a continuing care retirement community. The church, which was built in 1889 and closed in 1999 due to declining membership, is said to be solid, but needs to be renovated and restored inside, Snyder said.

ADVERTORIAL CONTENT Park Place is a wooded enclave tucked away in a corner of Owings Mills that is quiet and serene, yet still close to everything homeowners could need. The community is close to I-795, I-695 and other easy commuter routes to Baltimore, Washington and Columbia. Park Place is also within walking distance of shopping, dining, entertainment options and Metro, so residents can maximize their free time while minimizing their carbon footprint. Ryan Homes' emphasis on building homes that save energy - and money - has recently earned them the EPA's 2011 ENERGY STARĀ® Partner of the Year Award.

"I love my residents," declared Dawn Lamb, now in her 19th year as a geriatric nursing assistant at the Roland Park Place continuing care retirement community. For Lamb, 52, the love she gives to assisted living residents as a dedicated and caring aide - and the love she gets back - is what keeps her going professionally in a job that requires aides to assist residents with daily activities ranging from getting dressed to taking their medications. It also requires a lot of patience, as well as the inner strength to deal cheerfully with an aging population for whom death could come at any time.

A long-discussed plan to bring condominiums, a hotel and an arts theater to downtown Annapolis is moving forward now that the city council has voted to help finance a parking garage for the $200 million complex. The Park Place project - expected to be the largest in the foreseeable future for a city that is almost built to capacity - gained city approval three years ago but has been on hold as developer Jerome J. Parks has struggled to put together financing. Parks found a major investor last month, and last week's council vote clears the way for major construction.

The plan to build a large-scale residential/commercial/entertain-ment complex on 7 acres at West Street and Taylor Avenue in Annapolis is undeniably big. So, as the city begins the first series of public hearings on the project, the Planning Commission has taken the uncharacteristic approach of breaking the hearings into four sections. The project, to be called Park Place, would include a 225-room hotel, two office buildings, a 950-seat auditorium, 208 condominiums and a 1,400-space parking garage.

A fourth and final public hearing on Park Place this week could set the stage for a major approval needed by the Annapolis developer planning to build the large-scale West Street complex of condominiums, a hotel, offices, a garage and auditorium. The Annapolis Board of Appeals is scheduled to hold its final public hearing on the project at 7:15 p.m. Thursday at City Hall. A written decision is expected within a few days. Developer Jerome J. Parks needs the board's approval to move forward with his $150 million proposal to build a 225-room hotel, two office buildings, a 950-seat auditorium, 208 condominiums and a 1,400-space parking garage on the 7-acre site over 10 years.

The proposed, multimillion-dollar Park Place development on West Street in Annapolis cleared a major hurdle last night when the Board of Appeals granted approval for the project to proceed, with some conditions. The board's endorsement allows developer Jerome J. Parks to seek financing and tenants for the huge $150 million complex, slated to include a 225-room hotel, two office buildings, a 950-seat auditorium or theater, 200 condominiums or apartments, a 1,400-space parking garage and 50,000 square feet of retail space.

She hopes that will help ease her mind after the hotel missed its pushed-back opening date of July 12 . Guests, who had trouble making reservations, are all booked at the hotel.

In 1970, one of Barbara Bonnell's favorite art galleries purchased a set of 12 framed, antique lithographs - one for each month of the year - for a client who, as it turned out, didn't want them after all. The gallery called Bonnell, then of Guilford, to see if she would be interested in buying them. She and her husband, Robert Bonnell Jr., paid $2,500 for the set, which dates to 1802. On Wednesday, Bonnell, 82, now a resident of Roland Park Place and chair of its residents' association, brought the August lithograph, of a woman and her child, downstairs to the dining room to get it appraised at a "treasure hunting" event sponsored by the retirement community and modeled after "Antiques Roadshow" on TV. Bonnell guessed that the set, made in Paris, France, would be worth about $3,000 now. She was wrong.

I had biked no more than 10 yards into Druid Hill Park one Saturday morning when I met a white-tailed deer. The deer bolted. My heart jolted. I had recorded another park memory. Druid Hill Park, all 745 acres of it, attracts an impressive collection of human and animal life. This fall marks the 150 t h anniversary of the park, and many celebrations are planned. The Friends of Druid Hill Park, a volunteer group dedicated to maintaining and reinvigorating the park, has scheduled a number of events in October, including tours, sports festivals, a tree planting day and a gala at the Mansion House.

Carpaccio is part of a local restaurant group, which used to include Cafe Mezzenotte in Severna Park and now consists of a number of casual Italian-themed restaurants like Sazzio, Squisito's and Pomo Grille and the Four Seasons Grille in Gambrills.

With the addition of four tenants, available space at the $250 million Park Place complex is filling quickly before the first phase opens next spring -- proof of demand for commercial space in Annapolis, city officials say. Jerome J. Parks Cos., the developer, announced last week that Morton's The Steakhouse would open early next summer in the Westin Hotel under construction at the site at West Street and Taylor Avenue. It follows four major companies that have recently signed on -- including Merrill Lynch and biotechnology firm PharmAthene -- seven retailers and more than 100 homebuyers.

A few months ago, J. Jeremy Parks responded to an e-mail from an engaged woman about the planned Park Place development. The four-star hotel slated for the 13-acre site at the edge of downtown Annapolis was the only place she deemed large enough and grand enough to hold her reception. When would it be open? The developer gave her the bad news: At least two winters from now. "She was willing to wait," Parks said. Longtime developer Jerome J. Parks and his son Jeremy have always been willing to wait, too. Six years after they bought the first of several parcels near Westgate Circle, work began this summer on a $300 million commercial, residential and retail project that is unusual in scale for a mostly developed Colonial-era city.
