Under Armour founder plans luxury hotel for historic Recreation Pier building

It’s official; this school year is FAST’s last BY DANIELLE SWEENEY DSWEENEY@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

The Baltimore City Board of School Commissioners voted to close Friendship Academy of Science and Technology, a middle -high school located at 801 S Highland Ave., on Feb. 25. This vote was the final vote in the school closure process, which began in December, when the Baltimore School Board rejected a recommendation to renew the district’s contract with Friendship Public Charter Schools, Inc., the school’s operator. At that point, the board also recommended initiating Maryland’s school closure process. Baltimore City Public Schools held a statemandated public hearing on the closure of FAST on February 11 and accepted public comment through Feb. 21. The school, which has 650 students enrolled and 69 staff members, is being closed is due to the board’s vote not to renew the operator; poor academic performance; and better

The renovation and redevelopment of Fell’s Point’s Recreation Pier is now in the hands of Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank. The Sagamore Development Company, which Plank founded in 2013, currently has the former set for “Homicide: Life on the Street” under contract and will be completing design, planning and permitting over the next year, according to Steven Siegel of Sagamore Development. At last Thursday morning’s Fell’s Point Main Street meeting, Siegel acknowledged that the Fell’s Point neighborhood has heard many promises regarding the pier, located on the 1700 block of Thames St., over the past decade, and he said that he had attended to show why this time is “different from the 80 other times you heard it in the past.” The difference, Siegel said, is in the nature of Plank’s commitment. “He is steadfastly committed to the project—to the city,” said Siegel. “He also cares a great deal about the city making a better place for the residents, the neighbors, the businesses, himself and his business.” Financial motivation, said Siegel, is, for CONTINUED ON PAGE 18

Gun fired at Rancho Blanco; bar fight moves to Gmart lot by DANIELLE SWEENEy DSWEENEY@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

Police were called to Rancho Blanco, a Highlandtown-area bar, on Sunday, Feb. 23, for a disturbance, which soon spilled over to the nearby Gmart International Market parking lot at Lombard and Eaton Streets. According to Detective Brandon Echevarria, a police spokesperson, police were called to the bar at 100 Fagley St. around 12:40 a.m. for a reported assault and a discharge of a firearm. “There was an assault inside Rancho Blanco bar,” said Echevarria. “Apparently, this started over a pool game, and one suspect discharged a firearm into the floor.” Upon arriving at the bar, police officers were flagged down and directed to the parking lot of Gmart across the street, where three suspects were assaulting two victims, Echevarria continued. The police stopped the assault and recovered a handgun, said Echevarria, adding that three men were arrested. Currently Wilkin Valenzuela, 26, and Pedro Valenzuela, 25, face gun and assault charges. This is not first time an incident with a

firearm occurred at Rancho Blanco. In July of 2012 a Rancho Blanco patron was shot in the arm and torso during a bar fight. According to the Baltimore Sun, bar patrons detained the shooter in that incident, and another suspect who fled was later arrested. When violent activity occurs at a liquor establishment, the Liquor Board relies on police to send a police report to the board when the police think it is warranted, said Stephan Fogleman, Liquor Board chairman. “We often give the officers considerable weight in their determination as to whether a licensee or bar’s management bears some responsibility for the crime, based on the particulars of each case they investigate, “ said Fogleman. “But if a police report is filed with our agency by another interested party, we will most certainly review for potential violations.” Rancho Blanco was not charged with a violation for the 2012 shooting, and, to date, has not been called before the board regarding the Feb. 23 incident.

To the Editor

Think about it To the Editor: John Dillinger was once asked, “Why do you rob banks?” His answer: “’Cause thats where the money is.” Why is Canton now a hot spot for crime? I would think that our trained law enforcement agency would have had this answer and been actively working on it long before it reached these terrible consequences. Added to the somewhat revealing statement made by our mayor with regards to those of us in the Canton area and what we really mean to her. What should we Cantonites do? Lets dance with this idea...Lets clearly mark the boundaries of Canton—and then move to secede from the city. Lets become part of Baltimore County. Think about it. Less property taxes, lower water bills, better school system...Sounds like a win,win, win to me. Now I must say this is coming from a home owner whose grandmother bought her “Canton” rowhome in 1904 when it was actually in Baltimore County! Whose to say we can’t turn back the hands of time? As I quote, “When in the course of human events...” Roland Moskal, Canton

Community Banking Since 1924 Monday-Thursday 9am to 3 pm, Friday 11am to 7pm

A little more than a month after a community-approved parking proposal for Patterson Park was deemed too costly and possibly too short-term, about 70-75 members of the community turned out last week to begin the process of heading back to the drawing board. City Councilman Jim Kraft hosted a meeting on the Patterson Park Master Plan last Monday, Feb. 24, to discuss moving forward with a plan for the park as a whole, not just senior citizen access to one building. To recap: Last summer, the Patterson Park Working group came to an agreement that allowed senior citizens access to Patterson Park’s Casino building, which is now the location of the John BoothEleanor Hooper Senior Center. The agreement included a plan that slightly increased the park’s interior parking capacity, mainly in the Virginia Baker Recreation Center parking lot. Under the community’s plan, that lot would have been modestly expanded by moving back a retaining wall. It turned out that moving back that wall carried a hefty price tag: about $500,000, according to Bob Wall, Recreation Chief for Baltimore Recreation and Parks. “We came to the conclusion that maybe we don’t have to do that right now,” said Kraft on Monday, Feb. 24, adding that the current ease of senior access to the Casino, the age and condition of the city ice rink located within the park, and the fact that the Virginia Baker Recreation Center may not be in an optimal location were all factors that contributed to that conclusion. The purpose of the meeting last week was to start the process of updating Patterson Park’s Master Plan, which was last completed in 1998. Wall said that last week’s turnout was solid, especially when compared with the late 90s. “Comparing these numbers to 18 years ago is pretty overwhelming,” said Wall, assessing the crowd. “Moving forward, I’m happy to be a part of the process again with capital projects moving forward.” Kraft broke the master planning process for Patterson Park into five major categories. Each category, he said, would be analyzed by a separate committee,

which would make recommendations to an “overall, for lack of a better word, ‘steering committee,’” which would eventually come up with a new master plan:

Capital improvements

This category includes an inventory of the park’s current and future building and infrastructure needs, including lighting; improvements to pathways, pavement and park entrances; renovation of buildings such as the park’s White House; and plans for the space that will be left when Recreation and Parks moves its maintenance yard out of Patterson Park. A summary statement issued by Kraft also states that “community members hope that an outcome of this review will be the articulation of a process that adequately involves community members in the creation and review of design specifications, both for future capital projects as well as removal of existing buildings and structures.” Kraft added that there has been some discussion that the ice rink and football field area near Linwood Ave. might be a good place for a recreation center as well. “Do we change Linwood Ave., make it one-way, and create angle parking?” he said, adding, “Don’t go home and say ‘Kraft said we’re gonna... Because Bob Wall said it.’”

Maintenance and governance

This category, according to Kraft’s written statement, “should evaluate and revise maintenance and operational protocols for the park, while addressing longer-term governance questions, specifically alternative models for park maintenance, such as a Conservancy model.” Kraft added that the Friends of Patterson Park and community are interested in an “enhanced role” for the Friends.

Ecology and natural resources

“Water management, tree cover, wildlife habitat and vegetation” are several issues that need to be addressed by an updated Master Plan, Kraft said, adding that “the


BALTIMORE GUIDE 5

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 5, 2014

Patterson Park Audubon Center’s ‘Bird’s Eye View’ report and plan should play an important role in these conversations.”

Programming

A lot happens in Patterson Park, including the Kinetic Sculpture Race, the Halloween Lantern Parade and multiple ethnic festivals. “Additionally, program(ming) for the new Virginia Baker Recreation Center should be addressed,” Kraft wrote.

Historical Connections

The park was a significant location in both the Civil War and the War of 1812. Kraft’s statement says that “any revision of the master plan for Patterson Park should address current and future historical preservation efforts and attendant programming in order to educate park users on the important historical aspects of the park.”

Anyone wishing to join—or chair—a committee is encouraged to contact Kraft’s office at 410-396-4821. Kraft said that all meetings will be open to the public. The group tentatively plans to come back together with an update on Thursday, March 13, 7 p.m., at the Casino building in Patterson Park. At that meeting, reports Kristyn Oldendorf, Kraft’s chief of staff, a plan for moving forward—including organizing the committees, leadership and regular meetings—will be established.

We have a commitment from the administration to pay attention to our work.

Finance

Some residents raised the possibility of a sixth sub-committee to come up with financing solutions for the items identified in the master plan. Kraft said that at least $3 million—money previously earmarked for the Virginia Baker Recreation Center renovation—is guaranteed for Patterson Park “to the extent that you can guarantee anything in government.” A resident asked if there was any guarantee that a new master plan would be followed by the city. “We have a commitment from the administration to pay attention to our work,” said Kraft, and there were a few ironic giggles from the assembled. “That’s really important,” he continued. “Lots of reports get written, things get done, and I can take you to the sixth floor of City Hall, where it’s all lying there, collecting dust.” Wall said that the city has been generous to Recreation and Parks lately, citing improvements at the Cherry Hill and Clifton Park recreation centers as two examples. Speaking to future improvements in Patterson Park, Wall said, “Sure, we’re going to miss on some, but I think we’re going to hit some home runs on some others.” Kraft said that signing up to be on one of the master plan committees would be a major commitment. “When we talk about work groups, we really mean work groups,” he said.

A new collaboration—including the Southeast Community Development Corporation, the Highlandtown Arts District (ha!), a monthly queer dance party in Baltimore called Glitter Thighs, and UMBC’s Center for Art Design and Visual Culture—is creating a series of spontaneous arts happenings to promote the potential of empty retail spaces on Eastern Ave. “We’re calling these ‘Pop-up arts events’ because they will suddenly appear in unoccupied spaces and then close down shortly thereafter,” says organizer Sandra Abbott, ha! member, and curator of collections and outreach at CADVC. Victor Torres, a graduate student assistant at

UMBC and Glitter Thighs organizer, orchestrated the pop-up series’ Feb. 21 kickoff—a dance party at Carlos O’Charlies—and will be coordinating three Highlandtowncentric pop-up events. “The kickoff was fantastic,” Torres says. “We had four DJs and must have had 230 people attend. It was great to see the Latino and queer communities having a good time together.” Torres is already working with local landlords on potential pop-up spaces and has a few ideas for Eastern Ave. pop-up art experiences. One is an immersive performance space. “That’s an art installation with a performance component, and the audience will be incentivized to become part of the performance,” he says.

Torres is also considering transforming a vacant retail space into a living studio. “An artist or artists goes in and works for a while, and the storefront’s windows re-active the space,” he explains. Another possibility, he says, is a public artists’ talk. “Artists might talk about their research, discuss where their work is going or how they see themselves as artists in Highlandtown. That’s one idea,” Torres says. “One purpose of the pop-up events,” says Amanda Smit-Peters, manager of Highlandtown Main Street, “is to highlight the real estate on Eastern Ave. Pop-up galleries

and shops are a great way to showcase and help people re-envision available space.” Another reason is to have fun and promote Highlandtown as a community where artists can settle. Torres, who is studying digital arts, says he worked in Highlandtown before at an afterschool health and education program called Mi Espacio at the Caroline Street Clinic. “I’ve never worked in Highlandtown as an artist before though. I feel grateful for the opportunity. The possibilities here are endless,” he says. Torres says to look for Eastern Ave’s newest pop-up art space in late March.

The pop-up art campaign planned for Eastern Ave. was kicked off on Feb. 25 at Carlos O’Charlies, 3508 Eastern Ave., with “Glitter Thighs,” a traveling, monthly, queer dance party. | Photo by Kata Frederick

Growing Up In Canton By Roland Moskal, special to the Baltimore Guide

Whatever happened to the good old days? “Oh, you wouldn’t recognize the place these days.” That is so true today in my Canton. For the most part, it’s what I don’t see. There are no kids beyond infants in strollers. I don’t see elementary school kids on the playgrounds. Since we have no longer have any rec centers to speak of, I don’t see teens in groups playing pick-up games. Canton is still here, but the neighborhood is gone. Blocks and blocks of rowhomes, once crowded with families, are now populated with empty nesters, retirees or yuppies. Those young folks who are married and have children simply stay until the babies are almost school age, and they are gone. Remember, the engine that drives migration is the quality of the school system. My Canton is now a bedroom community for Washington, D.C. In my travels, I have found that it is simply cheaper to find a rowhome in Canton than in the D.C. suburbs. The I-95 commute, exiting onto O’Donnell St., is almost like a daily therapy drive—out of the rat race and into Canton. And Canton is where to find all the good “pubs,” as they call them today. My father

used to go to the corner bar, and like in “Cheers,” everybody knew his name. O’Donnell Square used to have a wading pool and a pavilion. Both are gone, but the pubs have grown. The firehouse is now a coffee shop. Obviously, the corner grocery stores— Sam’s, Friday’s, Helminac’s, Eddie’s—are gone. And only the folks at Hoehn’s, up on Bank St., are still baking their hearts out. And do you know what else? It won’t be long before they rip down all the formstone in Canton. Was it really that ugly? Next goes the white marble steps and the Tiffany-style glass with the house numbers seen in front door transoms. With almost every house having central air and shut up tight, you rarely see people sitting out front in the evenings. You don’t hear church bells. You don’t see clothes on clotheslines. Nobody washes and waxes their cars in the street. Occasionally, you might hear the ice cream truck, but where do you go for a good snowball in Canton? Maybe this new wave of immigrants will restart the neighborhood family cycle. Canton will once again be the charm in Charm City.

Furthermore, she says, two floors of spaces are available indoors, “with amazing views of the harbor, exposed brick, balconies and hardwood floors that

FAST: School also had academic challenges CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1

opportunities available for students elsewhere in the school system, BCPS’s closure recommendation stated. The number of FAST students who scored “proficient” or “advanced” on the math portion of the Maryland School Assessment test—administered to third-through-eighth graders—fell 28.3 percentage points between 2011 and 2013, according to school reports. For the 2012-2013 school year, only 20.9 percent of students at the science and technology school scored “proficient” or “advanced” on the math test. FAST’s Algebra and English Maryland High School Assessment pass rates also declined significantly from the 2011-2012 to the 2012-2013 school years—from 60 to 52.8 percent for Algebra, and 72.7 to 58.4 percent for English. Additionally, the school operator’s most recent renewal report indicates ineffectiveness in many areas of the renewal rubric. It scored “ineffective” in 10 of 12 areas of the academic success portion of the report, and “ineffective” in five of 10 areas in the “school climate” section of the report—most notably in teacher-, student-, and parentsatisfaction, cohort retention, and effective programming for students with disabilities. FAST had 109 students with disabilities according to the BCPS FAST closure report. The school has also experienced significant truancy problems, and students from FAST have been involved in multiple incidents in the community over the years, including vandalism, assault, and theft, including a lunch-time assault and theft in Patterson Park involving staff at Patterson Park Public Charter School.

Mike Beczkowski, Canton resident and Canton Community Association board member, says he has mixed emotions over FAST’s closure. “It always bothers me whenever I see an academic institution fail and close. However, given the safety of our community and the well-being of our residents, it probably will help eliminate some of the problems we’re currently facing,” he says. The FAST building will become a new elementary/middle school for the Southeast Baltimore area, which is expected to have at least 1,000 more elementary/middle school students by 2019-2020. Canton Community Association President Sean Flanagan sums up the feelings of many Southeast Baltimore residents toward FAST when he says he’s not looking backward. “It’s more of a closed chapter for me,” he says, adding that he’s more focused on the FAST building becoming a new elementary/ middle school, and as the new president of the CCA, he wants the community to have a voice in that process. A design and a feasibility study for renovating 801 S. Highland Ave for the new elementary/middle school is slated to begin this spring. “We are working on the timing and structure for that process and hope to communicate with the community about that soon,” says Alison Perkins-Cohen, executive director of BCPS Office of New Initiatives. Construction is slated to begin on the 801 S. Highland Ave. building in 2016, with completion in 2018, and the school open for students for the 2018-2019 school year.

Plank, secondary to the above. Therefore, “we have no financing contingencies,” he said. “This will be financed with [Plank’s] wherewithal,” said Siegel. Siegel said that with this morning’s presentation he was starting an “open dialog” with the community regarding the project, and also hoping to gain the community’s support. The centerpiece of the renovation is a “world-class, luxury boutique hotel,” Siegel said. The design team—Todd Harvey of Beatty, Harvey, Coco Architects and Patrick Sutton of Patrick Sutton Architects—outlined the plans for the hotel. Sutton said that the target “customer profile” is a person between 30 and mid-50s with disposable income, “the kind of person who is going to pick a small, characterdriven hotel that is ...ingrained into a community that has the qualities that this community already has.” “They’re the kind of people that are world travelers who are interested in the arts,” Sutton added. He called the hotel’s amenities, including a restaurant, “high-end but not pretentious.” Harvey said that the overall character of the building would remain the same, and the process would be more renovation than rebuilding. He said that though the building itself is in “excellent shape,” the pier behind and underneath is gradually falling apart in the water. Harvey said that clear wall of glass would cover the open arch on the building that currently fronts Thames St. Behind the glass would be “the main public space” of the building, containing a restaurant, bar, lounge and hotel lobby. On the second floor of the “head house,” the portion of the building closest to Thames St., will be a fitness facility and spa for hotel guests. Above that, a maple-floored ballroom will be available for events such as weddings. The hotels 128 guest rooms would be located on the pier itself. The rooms would wrap an interior courtyard; the outer rooms would look directly over the harbor, and the inner rooms would look into the courtyard. Vehicles would be transferred via valet service to off-street locations nearby, Siegel said. A commitment has already been made with the Harbor Point developers for use of a parking facility, he added. Regarding the amount of jobs created by

They’re the kind of people that are world travelers… the hotel, Siegel said, “I think we’re looking at somewhere north of a hundred.” Currently, the “stumbling block on moving the project forward through the next set of approvals” is the city’s requirement that the waterfront Promenade be continuously located along the water’s edge from Canton through Federal Hill, said Harvey. In the case of the Recreation Pier, the Promenade would have to wrap the outside of the hotel. This presents a problem, said Harvey, because the building comes to within 4 feet of the edge of the pier, leaving a dangerously thin strip for the Promenade. Harvey added that constructing a wider Promenade would require that the developer obtain more “water rights,” adding another two years to the permitting process. Instead of wrapping the building with the Promenade, the architects proposed that Sagamore Development would widen and improve the sidewalk on the south side of Thames St. from S. Ann St. to S. Broadway. They are currently eyeing a sidewalk width of 18 feet, with tree wells, benches and lighting. Siegel said that Sagamore Development will be soliciting the support of the five Fell’s Point community groups for this option. Harvey noted that having to adhere to the letter of the city’s Promenade requirement “quite frankly might derail the project, or make the project somewhat unfeasible.” The price tag for the renovation is currently a “moving target” somewhere between $60 and $70 million, Siegel said. “We really need your support and your help to get across the finish line,” reiterated Siegel. Members of Fell’s Point Main Street reacted favorably to the proposal. “I think it’s wonderful,” said Ron Furman, owner of Max’s Taphouse, “because the alternative is we’re just going to watch it fall into the harbor.” Fell’s Point resident Lew Diuguid inquired about public access to the proposed hotel. The response was that the situation would be similar to Harbor East’s Four Seasons: The public is free to go into the restaurant or lounge and have a drink.

Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!
