Crane Spotting from the Tiki Barge

Hi! I just wanted to share two photos of development in downtown Baltimore with you before they quickly become outdated. I took these from South Baltimore's Tiki Barge (a great place to spend a laid-back, sunny afternoon). On the left, you can see the vertical expansion of the Four Seasons Hotel, which will house high-end condos. Residents will have access to the hotel's sophisticated amenities, including the gorgeous infinity pool, and live in quiet luxury amidst of the swank action that defines Harbor East. On the right, you can see the Exelon headquarters taking shape on the Harbor Point peninsula.

This shot of Exelon's headquarters incorporates the eight story Morgan Stanley building, the first building constructed on Harbor Point. Ultimately, the 27 acres that comprise Harbor Point will include over three million square feet of residential, office and retail space and a nine acre public park. Baltimore's famed waterfront promenade will encircle the development, expanding public access to the water. Runners, bicyclists and pedestrians look forward to adding this path and its views to their routes, just as photographers and dreamers will undoubtedly be drawn to the new vantage point as a place to frame the perfect photo or simply watch the world go by.
