As the Station North arts and entertainment district matures, community leaders are setting their sights on another long-promised part of the neighborhood's renaissance - market-rate apartments. The neighborhood, once a handful of nightspots surrounded by seedy parking lots, has grown into a small hotbed of restaurants, theaters and bars, with activity pushing up Charles Street and east and west along North Avenue and thousands flooding the area this summer for concerts and other events.

At age 100, the commercial building at 120 W. North Ave. has enjoyed prosperity and suffered humiliation. It's now soon to become an arts center in the Station North neighborhood, whose transformation I've been watching for the past few years. Perhaps its worst hour happened in 2012, when the Fire Department ordered it closed. Inspectors took one look at the outdated 1914 wiring and said, "Shut it down. " Its main tenant, the Single Carrot Theatre , promptly moved out. "The electrical box was like something out of a Dr. Frankenstein movie," said Laurens "Mac" MacLure, director of the Baltimore Arts Realty Corp., who gave a tour of the roomy structure this week, as his group has been completing plans for a $6 million upgrade.

Keep your eyes on Charles North. The continually emerging neighborhood, much of which is contained within the Station North Arts and Entertainment District, was a 2013 hot spot with the openings of surprising new places like Bottega and The Crown, attracting appreciative crowds. Charles North continues to blossom, and three recently opened cafes - Red Emma's, Canteen and Nancy by SNAC - are welcoming the new year with plans to expand their hours, menus or both.
