Cap Center may be razed soon in redevelopment
The Washington Post

WASHINGTON – The vacant Capital Centre arena off the Beltway may be demolished as soon as this summer to make way for retailers including Pier 1 Imports, Linens 'n Things and Lane Bryant, developers of the $82 million retail and restaurant complex said yesterday. Baltimore developer Cordish Cos. and Washington Sports & Entertainment Inc. said they plan to open the 70-acre "Main Street"-style dining and shopping center at the arena site by summer 2003, more than six months later than was announced last summer.

Baltimore ordered to pay $219,000 for site
The Baltimore Sun

BALTIMORE – A city Circuit Court jury has awarded a displaced property owner from Baltimore's west-side redevelopment zone about $90,000 more than what the city offered when he left his building a year ago. Baltimore Development Corp. offered Hippodrome Hatters owner Lou Boulmetis $127,000 for his four-story brick building at 15 N. Eutaw St. The buyout – a condemnation acquisition that falls under the city's eminent domain authority – is part of the city's $350 million plan to acquire and redevelop property near the Hippodrome Theater. Unhappy with the city's offer, Boulmetis contested its appraisal and hired a private appraiser, who valued the property at $219,000.
