New Housing and Business Projects in Maryland

According to the Baltimore Sun, the city has two new construction projects that are currently being reviewed by city officials and contractors. The plan is to construct a 404-foot building that would serve as both a residential and commercial building in downtown Baltimore located at 1 Light Street. The base of the building would be a parking garage that’s contained within a stone structure, and the second layer would be about 340 apartments in the complex, and then about 10 stories of offices to top it off. It’s been speculated that M&T Bank is the party interested in obtaining extra office space, but spokespeople for M&T have not commented on it yet.

There are also plans for another residential and retail building that contractors and city development boards are looking to erect on President Street and Albemarle Street. This building would have about 240 apartments and 7,000 outlets for stores. Many members of the city panel are excited about the potential commerce that both of these buildings would bring to these areas of the city. The subplot has been the expiration of M&T Bank’s lease on their current office building and speculation about where they will be relocating to. So far, the city has indicated they will pledge $28 million in funds for the projects.

The area at 1 Light Street has been vacant for quite some time with its last building being the Southern Hotel, officially closed back in 2000. The Della Notte Restaurant, where the building plans for President Street are being discussed closed just three years ago. Much of the questions being raised about the current project are about the impact of traffic in the area and the exit points from the parking structures. Overall, the takeaways from city meetings have been positive about the potential for building construction in this section of Baltimore.

The Energy Sector and Ties with Iraq the Power Behind Turkey

The energy sector is the heartbeat of the Turkish economy and has helped it grow exponentially despite the biting recession. In fact, statistics show that Turkey has been the best performing economy in Europe for the preceding 3 years. Experts even suggest that Turkey is projected to record an attractive GDP (Growth Domestic Product) growth of over 3 % for the year 2013.

At the epicenter of Turkish and the region’s economic boom is the Habboush Group, a leader in the administration and implementation of energy and infrastructure projects in Turkey and the region’s emerging markets. In addition, the Habboush Group centers on the upgrade, administration and investment incorporation sectors of the business in order to attain the requirements for completion of energy and infrastructure projects.

During Habboush Group’s 80 years’ operation, the company has been involved in a lot of bigger projects including power generation, and energy projects in Iraq and Turkey. The Habboush Group, along with CEO Wadie Habboush considers Turkey and Iraq vital frontiers in the region’s economics, so having a stable operational capability between these two regions would be greatly beneficial moving forward.

Turkish economic outlook is tremendous according to experts considering the demographics, macroeconomics, industrial advancement and demand for energy. Due to Turkish proximity to Iraq, it will make more economic sense to tap into the neighbor’s energy reserves. Iraq, particularly Southern Iraq, hold one of the biggest oil and gas reserves, but years of war have only stifled production and growth in the energy sector. Turkey has forged alliances with other international energy and infrastructure firms to reverse the trend and make Iraq a vital source of oil and gas in Turkey and Europe. This relationship can be harnessed further for the betterment of the two countries, the region, and the world.

The current events in Turkey and the region have not impacted Turkey in any way. Turkey’s strategic geographic location has enabled it to wade murky waters. Turkey acts as a transit point for Europe, the Middle East and Caspian region and this is a vital element of its economic stability. Another factor driving up Turkey’s economy is its population that is industrialized, young and emerging. The population is also vibrant with middle class that is ambitious and hardworking. To add to that, the economic atmosphere is welcoming to investors.

Another Key economic magnet for Turkish economy is its capital city, Istanbul. Istanbul is a cosmopolitan city that connects east and west. It’s considered the economic hub of Turkey and the region’s convenient business hub logistically. With the relationship between Turkey and Iraq becoming stronger each day, the next 5 years could see these two nations assume full status of big and stable markets in the region and globally.
