Developers continue to look east as they search for more harbor-side space to build offices, shops and other stuff that was originally found downtown. The Baltimore Business Journal reports a local firm is proposing to build four office towers in Canton. Don’t worry, fun-lovers. There will be shopping and entertainment, too.

COPT, which also owns the Canton Crossing tower, has designs on the space (pictured above), but plans for just who will be moving in haven’t been finalized.

On the retail and entertainment front, COPT COO Stephen E. Budorick tossed out ideas including nightlife, street cafes, “community-based retail” and, since there’s water and everything, a marina.

Budorick also floated a potential new headquarters for McCormick & Co. as one of the possible office space uses, but wouldn’t offer anymore spicy details. Needless to say, Sparks would fly if that deal went through.
