As developer consultant Al Barry put it to the Baltimore Commission for Historical and Architectural Preservation Tuesday, “I hope the fourth time’s the charm.”

It was. He was referencing three failed attempts by Zahlco Development to convince the 13-member preservation panel to approve plans for a 50-unit apartment complex on W. Pratt Street in Ridgley’s Delight, the historic neighborhood sitting in the shadow of the University of Maryland medical complex and Oriole Park at Camden Yards.
