Top Stories: One-of-a-Kind Home for Sale in Canton, Riverside Row Home Accidentally Demolished, Rita St. Clair Auctioning Off Pieces of Collection

0 Written by: | Friday, May 26, 2017 5:15pm

Our most-read piece this week was Cynthia McIntyre’s newest Hot House installment about an on-the-market, modern renovation of an old Canton row home that’s been conjoined inside with a neighboring warehouse. The result of the renovation is a pristine two-story, four-bedroom, four-bathroom home with a roof deck and a rare (for the neighborhood) two-car garage.

The project comes from the innovative minds of local developer Building Character, which specializes in contemporary-style transformations. The home sits on the border of Fells Point and Canton, positioning the lucky buyers who can afford its $849,000 price tag with plenty to enjoy in the surrounding neighborhoods.

Here were our other most popular stories this week:

Greenlaurel: Beneath the Surface of Baltimore Harbor’s Failing Clean-Up Grade

1 Written by: | Thursday, May 25, 2017 1:37pm

The Waterfront Partnership and Baltimore City have joined paddles to expand the affordable public kayaking program.

At face value, the 2016 Healthy Harbor Report is pretty depressing. Another year of failing grades in swimming stats and fecal matter and pollutant levels. But if you dive beneath the surface, there’s a clear story of progress, pipes and partnership. If only time could speed up a bit so we could all enjoy — maybe even swim — in a cleaner Baltimore Harbor sooner, rather than later.

When University of Baltimore MFA grad Elisa Estrella returns to a botánica for the first time in years, she’s nervous as can be. She remembers feeling faint in just such a spiritual space as a child. As an adult, she’s desperately seeking change, so she steps inside.

I moved to Baltimore for a new job in the summer of 2008. About one month after I started work, the stock market crashed, and four months later, so did my new job. Thanks to a referral from a friend in my business network, I got a job working for a small federal contractor in the DC area. It meant a long commute from Baltimore and significantly less pay, but I was desperate. Read More →
