The $6 million historic renovation of this handsome 1909 commercial building will continue the revitalization of a Main Street community in Maryland’s premier Arts & Entertainment District, which is anchored by the Maryland Institute College of Art, Johns Hopkins University, and Baltimore’s (Amtrak) Pennsylvania Station. As a center for the creative economy, this project will help Baltimore to attract and retain residents, grow its tax base, and create as many as 100 new jobs.
The project will restore a long-vacant 18,000 square foot vacant building that has been home to car dealerships, restaurants, a dancing academy, and two iconic nightclubs. The developers are in discussions with two successful musicians and a major restaurant. Johns Hopkins University, a prime tenant in Jubilee’s Centre across the street, has already invested $290,000 in the project and is interested in space.
