Green Energy Plant Being Considered for the Former Power Plant Building at Baltimore Peninsula

| May 2, 2023 | 0 Comments

The former Gould Street Generating Station at 2105 Gould St. in the Baltimore Peninsula development in Port Covington could be reimagined as a green energy power plant in the future, according to MAG Partners founder and CEO MaryAnne Gilmartin. The Baltimore Peninsula development team controls the property.

The power plant was retired by Exelon on June 1, 2019 after 114 years of operation. The former power plant, which sits on 5.59 acres, was acquired by Greenspring Realty Partners, Inc. in 2019. But, now the property is controlled by the Baltimore Peninsula development team.

Two brick buildings were demolished at the former power plant in 2021. Currently, a concrete building with a smoke stack remains.

Gilmartin told there are some “working ideas” for the building, but that she likes the idea a “21st century” green energy power plant that utilizes power from sources such as off-shore wind. The building sits on the Patapsco River and is next to a BGE substation.

Gilmartin said they do have the right to demolish the building if needed, but says she “likes its bones.”

If the building does not become a green energy power plant, Gilmartin said another idea is to make it a cultural center.

The Baltimore Peninsula development team will look to improve the appearance of the building in the meantime. The team is considering a mural on the west side of the building that faces Chapter 1B of the Baltimore Peninsula development.

A large Baltimore Peninsula banner was added to the east side of the building last month. It faces I-95 and E. McComas St.
