The ugliest lot on historic Main Street in Annapolis -- the run-down site of a burned-down building -- has been sold and soon should be transformed into a home and retail shops. "Instead of looking like there's a missing tooth halfway up the street, there's an opportunity," Mayor Ellen O. Moyer said. Developer Anthony Manganaro bought the vacant lot, which fronts on Main Street and State Circle, for $1.6 million last week and said he plans to build his residence there. He, his wife and their three dogs would join Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. and his family as residents of State Circle -- the upstairs residential portion of his building would face the State House.

Downtown Bel Air has fallen on temporary hard times. The construction of a new streetscape, begun in 2006, has been disruptive for the businesses on Main Street, but once the project is completed, it will make the area much more inviting. But with many of the storefronts vacant, downtown Bel Air now looks more like a business park filled with insurance companies and financial services than a charming collection of retail shops. Don't let appearances fool you. There are upscale boutiques and gift shops along Main Street, and it's well worth the effort to seek them out. (Not that you'll have to look too hard.

Taking advantage of a good economy and a new affinity for old urban space, a local builder plans to develop one of the last large vacant strips of city waterfront with warehouse-style offices, shops and a pier of townhouses. Timonium-based Cignal Corp. and unnamed partners in 2301 Boston St. LLC presented a city panel yesterday with a $40 million project that could break ground in four to six months, provided tenants are found. It would rise from a 3-acre parcel off Canton's Boston Street that companies have failed to develop at least twice since the late 1980s.

The city's Design Advisory Panel rejected yesterday the proposed look of buildings that Pimlico Race Course officials had hoped to erect along Park Heights Avenue in its bid to remake the horse track into a gambling and entertainment complex. The four-story buildings would be used as dormitories for trainers, other track officials and visitors and would contain retail shops on their ground floors. Walter Lynch, Pimlico's development director, told the panel that landscaping work, previously approved by the panel, was under way and that he was seeking approval for the design of the buildings as a next step in the project in Northwest Baltimore.

On busy West Street in Annapolis, it sticks out: 1.9 acres of grassy open space amid a nonstop line of shops, banks, restaurants and gas stations. But the empty land at 213 West St., former home of The Capital newspaper, is unlikely to remain that way much longer. After two years of discussions with city officials, a Virginia-based developer is one major step from getting approval to build a mixed-use complex of single-family homes, nearly 8,000 square feet of retail shops and about 45 condominiums, city officials said.

For more than two decades, the windows of the Craig Flinner Gallery brimmed with large, graphic, colorful antique French posters, bringing a particular joie de vivre to the 500 block of N. Charles St. Inside, the walls were jammed with more posters, maps and paintings and shared space with antique and vintage furniture, architectural salvage, ephemera and other surprises. Glorious colors and patterns and textures abounded. This is the type of sophisticated yet affordable shopping downtown Baltimore needs more of. So news that the gallery would be closing its doors and moving to Hampden, after 25 years in Mount Vernon, should prompt some serious soul-searching on the part of the Downtown Partnership, Charles Street Development Corp.

Sales of alcohol, perfume and other items at airport duty-free shops fell immediately yesterday as passengers stopped buying those items in response to new government restrictions on liquids, gels and creams in carry-on baggage. Also, experts predict that airport retail shops will continue to suffer in light of yesterday's terror scare that forced passengers to dump their beverages, toothpaste and shampoo before boarding planes. But they expect food vendors and others to benefit from passengers who will face longer airport waits for flights because of the new security measures and have more time to spend money.

The revitalization of U.S. 1, long sought but years away from being realized, will receive a major boost this summer with the first retail-residential development along the historic corridor. The multimillion-dollar project will address two critical needs: Infusing U.S. 1 with small retail shops and providing housing for workers in relatively modest-paying jobs. As part of the joint venture with the county, Orchard Development Corp. will build an L-shaped, five-story complex in North Laurel.

One might say Steven Rubin's entrepreneurial spirit comes from his father. As a child, he watched his father pursue a variety of business endeavors. As an adult in his first business venture, he was ready to give up when their biotech company was having tough times. But Jacques R. Rubin pushed his son to keep at it. And four years ago, when the pair visited Lee's Ice Cream, it was the father who leaned over and whispered in his son's ear: "We should just buy them." In that spirit, father and son have expanded their ice cream business into a pint-sized supermarket staple in the Mid-Atlantic region, the Chicago area and the Madison, Wis., area This year, the local maker of super-premium ice cream hopes to also expand a different side of its business.
