BALTIMORE—Asrecently as last week, Harbor East Management Grouphad been trying to decide whether to add six floors or eight floorsto Four Seasons Hotel Baltmore. It appears the developer is takinga more modest approach: it has proposed to add six floors ofcondominiums to the 21-story building.

The design calls for 63 condominiums instead of the ambitious150 units that was part of the original plan, according to theBaltimore Sun.

"We would love to build the full building, and we think the fullbuilding looked great, but we don't think the market can sustainit," says Jason Huss, development director forHarbor East Management Group, an affiliate of H&S PropertiesDevelopment Corp. "Honestly, we're still not certain whether or notthe condo market will sustain (the new units)."

The developer originally planned a 44-story building, butfinished just 21 floors in 2009 during the recession. On Thursday,the city's design review panel approved the design for theadditional condo space. The Four Seasons is the only announcedcondo development in Baltimore at the moment.
