Eddie’s of Mount Vernon, the grocery store threatened with displacement by a 10-story apartment building, has found a new home one block away.

Developer Dennis Richter and Eddie’s owner Dennis Zorn announced yesterday that the grocery store will move next year from 7 W. Eager St., its home since 1988, to the lower level of the Belvedere condominiums at N. Charles and E. Chase streets.

Two Mount Vernon redevelopment projects are moving ahead after Baltimore’s preservation commission this week approved designs that will significantly alter a prominent block of N. Charles Street.

Landmark Partners won approval for its plan to build an eight-story office building called City House Charles in place of the Grand Central nightclub at 1001-1003 N. Charles Street. Developers say they have already identified tenants for 100 percent of the office portion.

And Agora Inc. was permitted to transform the former Hynson, Westcott and Dunning building at 1030 N. Charles St., to a new hub for its growing workforce. It will be the 13th building renovated by Agora along the Charles Street corridor, which has become a virtual campus for its employees.

Steven Rivelis found himself in an odd position the other day. He was sitting outside The Elephant, the restaurant he co-owns at 924 N. Charles St., having a drink when a woman approached him to offer her condolences for their closure.

When he informed her The Elephant is actually still very much open, pointing to an “OPEN” sign on the door nearby and diners inside, she said he was wrong. She had read the coverage of the Mount Vernon eatery’s impending demise and was certain they had shut down, despite what he was telling her. (“There are people eating dinner in the window, you can see that,” he says he protested.)

The corner of N. Charles and E. Eager streets in Mount Vernon will be vastly different under newly released plans from developer Landmark Partners, though locals may notice the familiar base that presently houses the Grand Central nightclub.
