Old Town Master Plan

Baltimore, Maryland
City of Baltimore

Marks, Thomas Architects teamed with Urban Design Associates of Pittsburgh to assist the City of Baltimore in developing a vision for a historic area of the City which has long suffered from neglect and disinvestment. Strategically located between downtown Baltimore and Johns Hopkins Medical Institution, the proposed Master Plan suggests the reformation of traditionally sized neighborhood blocks and the creation of a town center and market. The Master Plan encompasses an area of approximately 30 blocks of which the new plan identifies approximately 1,700 new mixed-income housing units, 150,000 SF of retail space situated in the new town center and 150,000 SF of offices.
