25th Street Station in Remington Now a ‘Blank Slate’

0 Written by: | Friday, Oct 03, 2014 8:41am

25th Street Station

With Walmart no longer a possibility, developer is “open to suggestions.”

In May, controversial plans to develop an 11-acre site in Remington as a Walmart-anchored shopping plaza were abandoned by the developer. Seawall Development Co. took over the project from WV Urban Developments.

But even as Seawall says they’re still open to building a Walmart at the location, Baltimore Business Journal points out that it’s not really feasible. Seawall has opted not to buy a few properties along 24th Street that were part of the Walmart-centric development plan, making it harder to accommodate a big-box store. Read More →

Cake Decorating Classes from Charm City Cakes

Charm City Cakes

catch of the day fish (2)Sad but true: not many of us are destined to celebrate our birthdays (or graduations, or weddings, or anniversaries) with an actual, bona fide Charm City Cake. Those confectionery works of art are just not everyday affairs, unfortunately. But that’s not to say that your homemade versions can’t have all of the decadence and creativity that go into the cakes that put Baltimore’s cake culture on the map. In fact, if you were to attend the whole slew of cake decorating classes that Charm City Cakes has this month, you may well be able to give Duff and company a run for their money by the time you’re done.

Ace of Charm City Cakes

I’m a baker…but not like the artists at Charm City Cakes. So, when I took a cake class there, I have to admit, I was a little nervous. I’d never done anything like that before…but I thought it sounded like fun. And, I’d get to have Mary Smith teach me – how cool is that? Since this is Baltimore, we have a friend in common, but I’d never met her…only seen her on Ace of Cakes. And I’m happy to report, she is as nice and fun and bubbly (and ON IT) as she seemed on the Food Network. (As I thought she would be.)

The week leading up to the class was a really busy one, so I had no time to even think about it, much less get worked up about it. I had a wedding gig – love when people give my brownies as favors! – and had a big delivery to make in Harbor East. And since I am a Langrehr, I arrived early, parked and walked to LAMILL (OH, I miss that place) to grab coffee for myself and for the nice lady working at the front desk at the Legg Mason building. When I got to LAMILL, I realized I didn’t have my wallet with me. The lovely, lovely barista rock star Echo Standing sent me on my way with two coffees…I vowed to pay her back. She said, no. And when I went back in the next weekend, she once again said I was covered. What a peach.

25th Street Station Project Halted as Developer Bows Out

0 Written by: | Wednesday, May 21, 2014 8:38am

25th Street Station

WV Urban Developments has announced that they have abandoned plans to turn an 11-acre site at W. 25th and Howard streets into 25th Street Station, a shopping complex that would have included a Walmart. In a statement, WV Urban Developments blames the “numerous appeals and filings by opponents” of the project for its decision to throw in the towel.

Opponents, including Hampden Village Merchants Association president Benn Ray, see a Walmart-anchored shopping center in Remington as a threat to local businesses in adjacent neighborhoods. And Walmart’s reputation (or, as the Sun would have it, its “perceived reputation”) for treating its workers poorly. Read More →

Can You Picture a Walmart at 25th and Howard?

For a second there, it looked like Walmart was going to stay out of Remington. Bruce Mortimer, owner of the 11-acre property at 25th and Howard, and WV Urban Development had gotten into a legal dispute, which was enough for Mortimer to go back on the sale and sell the parcel to Seawall Development Corp.

But the lawsuit has been settled, bringing WV Urban Development — and Walmart — back into the picture. Read More →

CCC classes

catch of the day fish (2)If you’ve lived in Baltimore for any length of time, you’ve probably had the Ace of Cakes conversation with at least a handful of out-of-town friends and family. “Do you watch Ace of Cakes? I looooove Ace of Cakes!” “Do you know them?” “Have you ever gotten a cake there?” “Really? It’s right down the block from you?” “Everyone on the show seems so quirky and fun!” Etc, etc, etc. And that’s cool. We dig having a nationally renowned cake bakery in our own backyard. And we’re even more into it now that Duff and company have started offering cake decorating classes where we can pick up some tips and skills, and of course, go home with our very own Charm City Cake.
