Top Stories: Kevin Spacey’s Manager Buys Inner Harbor Condo, State Authorizes Big Expenses to Cover Metallica Show, Woodland-Bordered Victorian for Sale in Mount Washington

Out top story this week was the subject (and result) of much speculation: Who bought that $6.25 million Inner Harbor condo at 622 Ponte Villas North this past February?

Speaking with local real estate agents and others with knowledge of the transaction, Ed Gunts got word that actor Kevin Spacey, known most recently for his starring role as Frank Underwood on “House of Cards,” had purchased the property.

Those sources were close. It was actually Spacey’s manager, Evan Lowenstein, who reportedly bought the property. A search of local tax records also revealed the purchase price was $5.65 million – lower than previously reported – and that Lowestein had bought it undercover by putting a company dubbed Clear Toaster LLC on the deed.

This doesn’t mean Spacey won’t be appearing around the harbor, though. As we wrote:
