Panel recommends team to renovate Parkway Theatre

November 24, 2009

A community selection panel has recommended that the city-owned Parkway Theatre at 3-5 W. North Ave. in Baltimore be sold for redevelopment to a group headed by Samuel Polakoff of Cormony Development and Donald and Thibault Manekin of Seawall Development Co. They proposed that the theater be renovated for live entertainment to draw visitors to the surrounding Station North Arts and Entertainment District. A second proposal called for the theater to be restored as part of a cinema and drafthouse. The panel's recommendation was sent to the Baltimore Development Corp.'s board of directors, who met in closed session last week to decide which proposal to recommend to the mayor. Kim Clark, executive vice president of the BDC, would not identify the chosen team.
