The Pabst Castle at 1834 S. Charles St. is one of the most unique buildings in South Baltimore and it appears it could finally be on its way to a full renovation (it recently had restoration work done to the exterior brick and its Pabst medallions). Once slated to be the home of a brewery and brewery pub, the building went back on the market when the entrepreneurs decided the South Baltimore building did not offer them enough space.

The castle is currently under contract with a buyer hoping to use it as office space, keeping Bumper Globe in place on the western end of the building. will keep you posted as more develops.

Charles St. After working with the community and neighbors on the details of the project, the property is currently going through the subdivision process with Baltimore City.

Green Door is hoping to start the project in Spring of 2014.
