HISTORIC PRESERVATION

Howard Row 

65,625 sq. ft                                        $1,250,500

The Howard Row design team worked closely with the project developer, Poverni Sheikh Group,  as well as the Commission for Historical and Architectural Preservation of Baltimore.

 

The five buildings were converted into mixed-use & multi-family housing while preserving the essence of the 1870’s street’s historic elements. Some of those elements were the design of the original storefronts on the ground floor and the windows on the second and third floors. These original storefronts and windows from the 1870’s were repaired or replaced, with approved and similar wood clad models, within the original brick openings.

 

The team also created unique partnerships and worked closely with the adjacent communities to make this a successful project in the Market Center National Register District.

Merchant Point

2,600-3,200 sq. ft per unit                  $6,000,000

Merchant Point is situated in the heart of the Fell’s Point , a historic neighborhood in Baltimore. This site not only faced the challenge of addressing different streets, but had multiple historic buildings to be  restored including a historic church and convent, open green spaces to revive, and empty lots to be infilled.  This  new masterplan had to consider  the current parking needs and sustainable design requirements while maintaining the historical context and the neighborhood’s pedestrian friendly culture.

Heath Street Lofts

85,000 sq. ft                                      $10,000,000

The  original four-story brick industrial building was constructed in 1911 and in 1927 a poured concrete wing was added to the east.  The interior consists of open plan spaces with exposed structural systems.  The 1911 brick building has exposed timber posts and beams and the 1927 building has concrete mushroom columns. It was important to the design team to keep these elements intact in the laying out of the residential units. The site had to be rezoned from M-2 to R-10 because the building extends through an industrial zone and residential neighborhood. The residential conversion is important both for revitalizing the declining industrial zone and for maintaining the health of the rowhouse neighborhood.
