When members of the Baltimore real estate and urban development community gathered last month for the second Real Cocktail Baltimore mixer, there was an excitement uncharacteristic of the city officials, architects, investors and developers who were present. Everyone came primed and ready to make a recognizable difference in the city of Baltimore. The conversations were charged with setting appointments between first-time acquaintances and old friends alike. And that all happened before the speakers even took the stage.
Bob Steele of Passport Realty advised real estate investors to search for, buy, and hold foreclosed properties due to current market conditions. The room was riveted by Steele’s description of how he became the Foreclosure King of Maryland, selling nearly 700 foreclosed properties in the past year, and currently holding an inventory of more than 180 foreclosed properties.
Michael Zebrowsky, an architecture professor at Morgan State University, spoke about his adaptive re-use project, Light Box, which was recently showcased at Baltimore Artscape (July 15-17). The project involves the re-use of a shipping container with contributions of recycled materials from The Loading Dock, a local building materials re-use facility.
This second Real Cocktail event saw the gathering of some of Baltimore’s most important development gurus on the lovely Rooftop of the Wyndham Peabody Court Hotel in the historic Mount Vernon neighborhood. So, whether you were there or not, enjoy these photos taken by Alexander Dobson Media.
