BDC wants proposals for Pigtown properties

August 24, 2010|By Jamie Smith Hopkins, The Baltimore Sun

Baltimore's economic-development arm said Tuesday that it is requesting proposals from firms for a mixed-use redevelopment of five properties in the Pigtown neighborhood.

The properties — at 925, 927, 929, 931 and 937 Washington Blvd. — are a mix of commercial and residential space. The Baltimore Development Corp. said it wants developers to propose plans that will anchor the Pigtown/Washington Village Business District. The quasi-public agency wants to see proposals to rehabilitate the buildings "to the largest extent possible."

The BDC said that residents' suggestions for the site have ranged from coffee shop and café to bookstore and yoga studio.
