A Virginia-based developer's quest to build a parking garage at 18 W. Saratoga St. received a key endorsement Thursday when Baltimore's Urban Design and Architecture Review Panel gave "revised schematic approval" to the latest design for the project. The plan by David and Richard Hillman of Southern Management Corp. calls for a 12-level, 375-space garage to be buried mostly underground, with just 24 spaces above street level. The top of the building would be 26 feet above the sidewalk.

Danyette Hawkins had to employ her best diplomatic skills as she stood in front of the Grand parking garage on Paca Street holding a bright-colored flag before the game. Every few minutes, a driver would pull up to enter the garage. Hawkins would have to explain that the garage — popular among fans when the team plays at night — was still filled with daytime business parkers. Then she would wave her flag and the car would move on. Some of the fans appeared frustrated.

Running parking garages is not a core function of government, so Baltimore Mayor Rawlings-Blake's plan to sell off city-owned garages would be an encouraging step toward shedding non-essential city assets and investing in more important priorities for the city's residents and long-term fiscal health. The mayor proposes selling four downtown city-owned garages to generate between $40 million to $60 million in net proceeds (after paying off $24 million in garage debt) that would be used to make improvements to city recreation centers.

Architect and scholar Shannon Sanders McDonald stepped out on a recent afternoon into a building that in her view stands as one of the most significant forms in architecture, an "It" structure, a hub around which today's urban development revolves. A nationally recognized authority on parking garages, McDonald walked from the Towson Town Center food court to Level C4 East, where she had parked her Mazda Miata. From here she would begin the tour of nearby examples of the architectural form she's been studying for nearly 20 years.

The state Board of Public Works brushed aside concerns of transit advocates and an Annapolis neighborhood group yesterday by endorsing a five-story parking garage at the gateway to the city's historic downtown. The 732-space garage, planned at Bladen and Calvert streets, has long been envisioned as a replacement for more than 400 state employee parking spots that were lost when a nearby parking lot was used for public housing. Expected to be completed in 2006, the garage will cost at least $24 million and will be paid for through revenue bonds.

Several Baltimore City Council members expressed skepticism Monday about a plan to sell some downtown parking garages, while others began lobbying the Rawlings-Blake administration to claim funds from the sale for recreation centers in their districts. Council President Bernard C. "Jack" Young said he has concerns about the administration's proposal to raise up to $60 million for recreation centers by selling four of the city's 17 parking garages. Young noted the four garages are money-makers - bringing in $400,000 annually - and questioned whether it's wise to forgo future revenue for a quick cash infusion.

A trial is underway for a former Baltimore city homicide detective charged with lying about shooting himself in a downtown parking garage in early 2011. The criminal charges brought by prosecutors conflict with the police investigation, which was open and inconclusive 18 months later when Det. Anthony Fata was charged. Fata faces charges of perjury, misconduct in office, and making false claims to obtain worker's compensation. Det. Valencia Vaughn, a fellow homicide detective, testified Wednesday that she visited Fata at Maryland Shock Trauma on the night of the shooting, Jan. 18, 2011, and he described having encountered an armed man a parking garage stairwell.

On Sunday, June 9 I went to the Mall at noon where I encountered a long line of cars in the parking garage adjacent to J.C. Penney and a parade of concert goers leaving the structure pulling coolers and clutching blankets. As I inched my way to the top level to find parking, I watched concert goers brazenly unloading their cars in spots intended for Mall customers. Yet, at the entrance to the Mall was a sign that said "no event parking," which presumably included the parking structure.
