Office building owner wants to convert property to apartments

Midtown-Belvedere building is more than 100 years old

March 12, 2010|By Baltimore Sun

The owner of a vacant nine-story office building at 11 E. Chase Street in Midtown-Belvedere is seeking city approval to convert the property to 56 apartments.

A group called Daejan 11 E. Chase LLC, represented by Samuel Monderer, has applied to Baltimore's Board of Municipal and Zoning Appeals to convert the historic Algonquin building to residential use. Monderer also controls the neighboring apartment building at 1010 St. Paul St. and a parking lot between the two buildings.

A zoning board hearing has been set for Tuesday.

Dating from the early 1900s, the Algonquin opened as residences and was converted to offices in the 1940s, so the latest plan would represent a return to the building's original use.
