Monk quoted in Daily Record article on Superblock developer lawsuit

Ousted Superblock developer sues

Charles O. Monk, II, partner in Saul Ewing's Commercial Litigation Practice and managing partner of its Baltimore, Maryland office, was quoted in a Daily Recordarticle as the lead attorney for the once- and would-be developer, Lexington Square Partners, of the Baltimore-owned Superblock property that sued the city for at least $50 million in an effort to block the mayor from entertaining new bids for the project. The lawsuit, filed in Baltimore City Circuit Court, asks the court to order the city to call off the reopened bidding and permit Lexington Square Partners to proceed under the Land Disposition Agreement.

Lexington Square Partners for years has pushed forward on plans to transform the vacant four-acre parcel at Lexington, Fayette and Howard streets and Park Avenue into a mega mixed-use development with apartments, retail, hotel and office space.
