Baltimore officials have finalized the $1.1 million sale of a 19-acre "brownfields" site on Pulaski Highway to construction magnate Willard Hackerman, who plans to develop a big-box store or warehouses or both, a city economic development official said Tuesday. The sale of the lot, the former site of a waste incinerator, was completed Friday, said M.J. "Jay" Brodie, president of the Baltimore Development Corp. The city's Planning Commission approved a "planned unit development" designation for the property a day earlier, allowing the uses proposed by Hackerman, president and chief executive of the Whiting-Turner Contracting Co. Hackerman formed Pulaski Limited Partnership to develop the Northeast Baltimore site and still needs City Council approval to proceed.

With their similar-sounding first names and look-alike dress, brothers Ja'Quis Lucciano Manigo and Tyquis Tyuan Moore enjoyed making people guess which was which. "Pick one," the younger brother, Ja'Quis, would playfully demand. It was just one of the games the two played together. The other was football. They wore the red of the Arbutus Golden Eagles. So it was appropriate that their silver and white caskets, side by side at a church altar, were adorned with placards with a red letter "A. " Their teammates wore their jerseys to the funeral Friday.

Their children in bed, the chores done, Amber Way and Michelle Manigo met on adjoining front porches to chat about their kids and exchange gossip making the rounds on South Pulaski Street. They parted just before 1 a.m., retiring to their neighboring rowhouses. Less than 30 minutes later, half of the Southwest Baltimore block was in flames. Way and her boyfriend rushed their daughters out the back door and into the street. There they saw neighbors who had also fled their homes.
