Downtown redevelopment encompassing 60 acres could be "Baltimore's last chances for new grand-scale development."
"Across the country, cities are regretting and reconsidering their downtown highways. There's San Francisco, which chose not to rebuild the Embarcadero after a major earthquake damaged it in 1989. And Milwaukee recently demolished the elevated Park East Freeway that ran through its city center and is replacing it with a boulevard." Now Baltimore is looking at demolishing the Jones Falls Expressway (JFX). "Hoping to someday coax a residential development from the parking lots and random warehouses that border the Fallsway, Edison Property Chairman Jerry Gottesman has hired a prominent architect and a former Baltimore planner to investigate the area's potential."
