Some good development news
In the past several days, a bunch of good development-related news has been announced.
Today, the Baltimore Development Corp. announced its choice of developers to renovate the Parkway Theatre, according to this piece by Ed Gunts.
Under a plan by Seawall Development Company and Cormony Development, the theater and a couple nearby buildings will be transformed into a bar, museum and performing arts space.
This is exciting stuff, and will be pivotal for the growth of the neighborhood. But wait, there's more ...
As for those boarded-up shops? Thanks to a bunch of federal stimulus money, all the vacant storefronts flanking the Broadway Market could be turned into 160 apartments, shops and parking. (The whole project is called the Marketplace at Fells Point.) You can read all about it in this piece by Sun reporter Lorraine Mirabella.
I can't wait to see how Fells Point looks this time next year, if all goes as planned.(Baltimore Sun photo by Jed Kirschbaum)
