CVS pharmacy, Chick-fil-A and Nalley Fresh will open locations at the Inner Harbor, joining Shake Shack and M&T Bank in a ground floor retail expansion at 400 East Pratt Street, the building's brokerage firm said today. The office tower's owner started expanding more than a year ago, renovating the lobby and working toward attracting shops and restaurants with outdoor seating. The landlord sought tenants that would be seen as amenities for office tenants as well as Inner Harbor workers and visitors, said David Leibowits, a partner of PDL Pratt Associates, the building's owner for more than 30 years.

When a home becomes a job site, tensions between those doing the work and those living with the dust can be unpleasant. But when the contractors and crew who for months had been hammering away at the Monte Verde low-income apartments in West Baltimore showed up at a recent holiday party, they were greeted by the residents as if they were Kris Kringle and his helpers. Standing in the middle of the room, clad in a bright-red plaid sports coat, was Michael T. Shacklette, the lead contractor for the renovation and now a party host.

The owners of Daedalus Books & Music had great expectations when they opened their first stand-alone retail store at the then-recently reinvigorated Belvedere Square in 2006. But the bookstore opened just before the national economy went into the tank. Daedalus found that because remainder books — the excess inventory sold at a discount by publishing houses to outlets like Daedalus — are so low-priced, it was hard to sell enough to keep the store going. It is set to close next month.

Incidents of disorderly conduct around Towson have prompted one Baltimore County Council member to propose a crackdown on landlords who allow tenants to cause a "public nuisance." Some community leaders say measures proposed by 5th District County Council member Vince Gardina are a good start in addressing conduct issues, but don't go far enough because they would only affect properties listed under the county's rental registration law — and wouldn't include apartment complexes.

Charles Gorham heard loud music at 5 a.m. Friday from the tan stucco garage apartment he rented behind his Northwest Baltimore home. His tenant, Duane Mitchell, was known for partying, and Gorham figured to leave well enough alone. He left for work, but when he returned at 9 a.m., the music was still blasting. The 73-year-old landlord walked over and, in the doorway, saw Mitchell's thin body splayed out, face buried in dingy beige carpet, dried blood covering the back of his bald head.

Residents at a notorious subsidized housing complex in West Baltimore sued their landlord and two private security firms Tuesday, alleging that they were forced to live in filthy conditions and suffered reprisals from guards when they spoke out about problems. The case was filed in Baltimore Circuit Court on behalf of 32 adults and their children who live at the Madison Park North Apartments, which city officials have said is called "Murder Mall" by its residents. The city has tried to oust the company that runs the apartments, and tenants say they cannot move to escape the conditions because of how their housing vouchers work.

Most of the upgrades at the two-building BECO Towers complex in Owings Mills are pretty standard: new windows, functioning elevators, an updated heating and cooling system. Then there are the fish tanks. The roughly 1,000-gallon aquariums, which BECO Management installed last month in the lobbies of both Mill Run Circle buildings, cost about $100,000 each. They required the commercial real estate firm to reinforce the floor and replace its cleaning supplies with fish-friendly materials.
