If you look closely at the five-story building on Madison Street in Baltimore, you can see the remnants of large, east-facing windows that were open when the property was an African-American church, starting in the mid-19th century. In the 1920s, it was acquired by a Johns Hopkins Hospital physician, given an art deco facade and converted to medical offices and apartments. Now it's changing again - to become Baltimore's newest luxury condominiums. The Revels is the new name of the $3.5 million project under construction at 104 W. Madison St. in the Mount Vernon historic district.
