With long-standing retail neighbors, this corner infill project is especially significant in that it helps to stabilize an important block of Woodward.
Baltimore Station 1 connects two existing long-vacant storefront buildings while introducing new retail and residential options in the heart of the city. Located in Milwaukee Junction, a neighborhood with a legacy of making and manufacturing Baltimore Station 1 and Baltimore Station 2 revitalize an important neighborhood intersection at Woodward Avenue and Baltimore Street.
Baltimore Station, located at the corner of Woodward Avenue and Baltimore Avenue, offers 7,460 SF of retail space and studio, 1- and 2-bedroom apartments at affordable and market rates.
Stage of Development
Once a popular art supply store and restaurant, the buildings were sat vacant for many years before The Platform acquired.
Baltimore Station provides new retail and residential space along Woodward Avenue in New Center.
The development features 23 residential units with stunning city views.
New murals and salvaged relics adorn the public spaces at Baltimore Station.
History: Prior to the building's vacancy, Baltimore Station 1 had a rich history as a department store, art supply store, Coney Island, and Caribbean restaurant. This development brings back crucial infill retail on a block that has successful and long-standing retail neighbors.
On Community Engagement: We reach out to our small business neighbors for conversation and exchange on all projects. We do this to share and test development plans. We also work with community partners to connect local residents with job opportunities for our retail tenants.
On Design Excellence: On the portion of Baltimore Station 1 that was built in 1922, we preserved the original glazed brick facade and several other interior brick walls that now serve to demise retail and residential spaces. Originally a two-story building, we constructed a third story to add more residential units. The third story offers generous patios with views of the neighborhood.
