catch of the day fish (2)So how’s that New Year’s resolution to eat healthier and prioritize wellness going so far? We’re just over a week in, so no need to despair if you’re teetering off the edge of the wagon.

The block-size lot southwest of St. Paul and 33rd Streets in Charles Village has sat vacant for years after a planned development went belly-up during the 2008-2009 financial crisis. With the economy creaking back to life, though, it’s looking like that empty space will soon be filled by a mixed-use development project including retail space, apartments, restaurants, and parking, and which may be under construction as soon as this spring.

It feels like just yesterday that we were warning you, dear readers, about the “the ultimately-good-but-really-stressful-for-the-next-few-years reconstruction of Charles Street” — but in reality, it’s taken two years to complete the construction project aimed at making the area around Johns Hopkins more pedestrian friendly. The reconstruction involved shutting down both north- and south-bound lanes of Charles Street, a major thoroughfare, for months.

After years of publicity, fundraising, and galvanizing community support, Ping Pong Baltimore has accomplished one of its longtime goals: Installing a permanent ping pong table in Wyman Park Dell.
