Nine Retail Buildings Demolished on West Baltimore Street

| November 5, 2020 | 0 Comments

Nine retail buildings on the southern side of the 1100 block of W. Baltimore St. in Hollins Market/Poppleton are being demolished by the City of Baltimore after being deemed unsafe. These vacant rowhomes from 1105 to 1121 W. Baltimore St. were built between 1870 and 1900 according to tax records. They are owned by multiple LLCs from the Washington, D.C. suburbs.

The buildings ranged between two and three stories and had first-floor retail spaces.

Southwest Partnership, a local nonprofit dedicated to the revitalization of W. Baltimore St. which has many vacant storefront and buildings, told they “hope to be able to connect with the owners to keep the space clean and safe, as an end use is determined.”

Southwest Partnership is leading a project to renovate the former Lord Baltimore Theater at 1110 W. Baltimore St.
