Hal Wheeler

Hal Wheeler wanted to transform the skyline of Baltimore. The Philadelphian’s plans for a 59-story, $400 million tower on a parking lot just steps away from the city’s famed Inner Harbor was the talk of mid-Atlantic real estate.

The tower, which would have been 20 stories higher than the next-tallest Baltimore building, was slated for a block full of potential but little progress. But city leaders knew that if anyone could pull it off, Wheeler could.
