Top 5: ‘We think we can bring a lot of excitement to this area’

A new Wegmans was announced for Owings Mills and a federal agency might hold up the Constellation/Exelon merger. Meanwhile, a legendary Baltimore Sun photographer's prints are going to auction -- much to his daughter's chagrin -- and plans for a downtown Baltimore casino are finally revealed. Here are the Top 5 business stories of the week: 1. FERC could delay Constellaton-Exelon decision until April -- by Ben Mook Constellation Energy Group Inc. and Exelon Corp. are calling on the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to make a decision about the companies’ proposed merger by Jan. 5 after learning the regulatory agency could delay the deal until April. On Oct. 13, the companies submitted to FERC an agreement they had come to with the independent market monitor for PJM, the regional power grid. The agreement resolved some possible issues the market monitor had. However, FERC said that the agreement effectively reset the clock on its approval process and it could have up to 180 days more to make a decision. 2. Caesars proposes ‘dramatic’ gateway for Baltimore casino -- by Nicholas Sohr The development group led by Caesars Entertainment Corp. touted its proposed 260,000-square foot casino on Russell Street as a “dramatic new gateway to downtown” Baltimore. The $310 million project, called Harrah’s Baltimore, would include 3,750 slot machines, a high-end steakhouse, a 400-seat buffet and a Baltimore-themed sports bar.
