Beatty Development Group President Michael Beatty has sold the Thames Street Wharf office building in Harbor Point to a California-based real estate company for $89 million. At $341 per rentable square foot, Monday's sale of the 8-story building to KBS Realty Advisors, sets a Baltimore record, said Bo Cashman, a senior vice president of the institutional properties group at commercial real estate firm CBRE, which represented the seller in the transaction. The previous record was set in 2005, when Georgia-based Wells Real EstateĀ Investment Trust II Inc. bought the home of T. Rowe Price, 100 E. Pratt Street, for $316 per square foot.

Fells Point restaurants seem to acquire a patina almost immediately -- you don't expect them to look this new and fresh. The dining room is being sold as having the best waterfront view in Fells Point, and I won't dispute it. When the windows are open, and a breeze is blowing through the tree right outside, and you can watch the little boats coming in . . . well, almost anything would taste good.

The developer of Harbor Point has placed Thames Street Wharf, the Baltimore offices of Morgan Stanley, on the market. Morgan Stanley is the primary tenant in the 277,000 square-foot building, the first in the planned 27-acre Harbor Point development. The building opened in 2010 on 1.3 acres at 1300 Thames Street. The asking price was not disclosed. Beatty Development Group LLC is looking to recapitalize the debt and equity for the $100 million building and is using commercial real estate company CBRE to "generate interest," said Marco Greenberg, vice president at Beatty, in a statement.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- With the Orioles growing increasingly pessimistic about their chances of signing free-agent outfielder Luis Gonzalez, they have turned to other options, including the Detroit Tigers' Marcus Thames and free agent Jay Payton. Late last night, the Orioles were considering a three-way deal with the Tigers and Houston Astros that would have landed them Thames, a 29-year-old outfielder who hit .256 with 26 homers and 60 RBIs last season. According to two industry sources, the proposed deal had Orioles pitcher Rodrigo Lopez headed to Houston, Astros outfielder Luke Scott going to Detroit and the Orioles getting Thames, who would have become the Orioles' only right-handed-hitting outfielder and the club's likely starter in left field.

LONDON -- For a city that likes to think it has seen most everything, the spectacle yesterday of a whale swimming past Parliament and the Millennium Eye and up the Thames to the posh precincts around Chelsea, 40 miles from the nearest sea, just about took the pudding. Thousands of people lined the riverbanks on a sunny day to catch a glimpse of the 15-foot-long bottle-nosed whale, which had a white-gray protruding brow, as commentators on television debated whether it was old or young, how it had come to enter the Thames estuary and its likely fate.

GREENWICH, England -- Big Ben's midnight chimes echoed through the land today as the British marked 2000, hours after the sun set on the empire and oceans they once ruled. The country that ushered in the 20th century as the world's dominant power, greeted the new year determined to celebrate its historic place as an island-nation of poets, scientists and ordinary people who displayed extraordinary valor during the century's darkest days. So the British headed to the future by staging one of the world's most extravagant New Year's celebrations under the $1.23 billion Millennium Dome along the Thames River, astride the prime meridian where time is measured.

No matter how many times one sees the paintings of Claude Monet in reproduction -- in books and on everything from postcards and coffee mugs to refrigerator magnets and computer screen savers -- one is still never quite prepared for how luscious his works really are in person, so to speak. So, coming upon the dozen Monets that form the core of Monet's London: Artists' Reflections of the Thames, 1859-1914, the delightful Baltimore Museum of Art exhibition that opens today, is akin to experiencing a revelation.

I was not prepared for the sheer candlepower of Harbor East when I went in search of some early Christmas spirit this week. Moving along Albemarle Street, where the holiday lights burned hot and bright, I made some mental comparisons with the old Howard Street and its department stores. Hands down, Harbor East outperformed the staid department stores. The place had a nighttime energy - and the circle at President Street reminded me of a kind of Times Square bustle. The traffic was maddening but there was no getting away from the reality that this part of downtown Baltimore is an authentic December destination.

We really should have known better. Last Friday night, a friend and I strolled into Thames Street Oyster House, the Fells Point restaurant that has served the most delicious seafood in the neighborhood since opening in July 2011, without a reservation. What were we thinking? It was just before 8 p.m., and the first floor was buzzing with dinner dates and anxious diners waiting for prized tables to open. Upstairs was booked for the night, so the downstairs bar area was our only option, according to our smiling hostess.

Lots of little news with the Orioles today. Jason Hammel, who has been on the disabled list since July 31 with a flexor mass strain in his right forearm, was activated but likely won't pitch before Saturday, unless he is needed in an emergency Friday, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. He is expected to pitch out of the bullpen, at least initially. Hammel, the club's Opening Day starter who has made 21 starts this year (5.20 ERA) said he'll do whatever is needed. He just wanted to re-join the club.

Nothing says old fashioned and simple quite like the Hot Toddy. Whether you're using it to treat your flu or cold symptoms (not doctor recommended, but probably by your grandmother) or preparing to hit the hay, it's the perfect evening drink. Thames Street Oyster House makes theirs with a light flavor and a local twist. Manager Candace Beattie explains: "We try to keep all of our drinks light and locally sourced whenever possible, even our happy hour is local. " To wit, the Thames Street Toddy is composed of Maryland's crown jewel of rye whiskey Pikesville Rye, mint, lemon and sweet orange tea - and it's the pinnacle of relaxing.

LONDON -- Despite rescue efforts, a 17-foot-long northern bottlenose whale that had strayed into the Thames in central London died yesterday, the rescue team said. The whale, from a deep-water species usually found in the North Atlantic, had been in the river since Thursday, drawing thousands of onlookers as it swam past the Houses of Parliament on Friday. It died as marine specialists escorted it on a barge down the Thames toward the sea, the British Divers Marine Life Rescue group said last night.

Fells Point, a waterfront neighborhood, has had a historic shortage of good seafood restaurants. There are one or two very good high-end choices, but the casual options are meager and the mid-range options non-existent. Here comes Thames Street Oyster House , which in the few weeks since its opening has been drawing a steady stream of customers. Part of the instant success at Thames Street has to do with the popular owner, Candace Beattie, who developed a following behind the bar at nearby Alexander's.
