With a $3.7 million sale in the works for its two buildings on Smith Avenue, ceramics nonprofit Baltimore Clayworks could soon have enough money to once again become financially solvent.

Top Stories: The Sandlot Opens at Harbor Point, A Creative Take on a Wedding Itinerary, Woodberry Flip for $417K

Our most popular story this week was Ed Gunts’ preview writeup about yesterday’s premiere for The Sandlot, the new waterside bar, restaurant and “beach hangout” at Harbor Point. The collaboration between Foodshed LLC and Beatty Development Group has been months in the making. It consists of a largely outdoor dining and entertainment venue with volleyball and bocce courts, a children’s play area, picnic tables, an Airstream trailer and, as the name suggests, bountiful sand.

Visitors can enjoy the comfort of indoor eating and drinking, however, as the bar and kitchen are made from customized shipping containers.

Ed offered this assessment of its ambiance: “It may have its roots in rustic campgrounds and childhood sandlots, but Sandlot also has the sophisticated vibe of the latest generation of rooftop bars in Manhattan that are open to the sky and city views.”

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

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.
