Kim Lane likens Pigtown’s three blocks along Washington Boulevard to a barbell.

The weights down in the 700 block, closer to Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, are the local shops that have served as the commercial core of the just-barely Southwest Baltimore neighborhood. Up in the 900 block, past a stretch of mostly row homes with addresses in the 800s, are more weights—newer ones—comprising newer businesses and organizations, including the Mobtown Ballroom, the year-old Suspended Brewing Company, the Hopkins-operated SPARC women’s health center and, soon, a three-story culinary workforce training outpost for the nonprofit Paul’s Place.

“Our work now is how to connect the two [sides], how to get people walking down here, flowing back and forth,” says Lane, executive director of Pigtown Main Street.

Three national landscape architecture firms have submitted proposals, unveiled today, for a planned waterfront park stretching 11 miles of shoreline in Cherry Hill, Westport, Brooklyn, Port Covington and other neighborhoods in view of the Hanover Street Bridge.

The developer behind a once-planned 55-unit apartment building in Woodberry has dropped out of the project after contractors razed two historic stone mill homes intended to be incorporated into the building–apparently unbeknownst to the builder.

“I have notified the owners of the property that I have decided to remove myself and CLD Partners from the Woodberry Project partnership effective immediately,” said Christopher Mfume, managing partner of CLD Partners, in a statement sent out around 9:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Upon moving to Coldstream Homestead Montebello last September, Nicole Foster and her husband Dwight Campbell found themselves wanting for more at their neighborhood’s namesake lake.

“We noticed that after walking the lake, people would just kind of walk and go home,” Foster says. “There was no gathering place for people, there was no place for people to get a cup of coffee, get a sandwich or anything like that.”
