The Inner Harbor

Harborplace's owner wants to give the tourist trap a face-lift, and that's great. It wants the pavilion to become “a destination” for city residents, and that's great too. But the rendering presented last Thursday, with “grander scale” rooftop signs, is much more befitting Orlando or Vegas than Baltimore. Generically shiny and comically overscale, the look is tacky without the requisite charm. Back to the drawing board, people.
