Taylor Property Group wants to build a modern five-story apartment and office building on Linwood Avenue close to Canton's O'Donnell square. The Baltimore-based company is negotiating with neighbors about the $7.5 million project, which has drawn concerns about how it will fit into the neighborhood. The new building would replace a warehouse, which the Taylor family purchased in 2013 for $1.5 million. Ross Taylor, Taylor Property's general manager, said he has met with neighborhood groups three times so far about the 1000 S. Linwood Ave. project, which would add 21 one- and two-bedroom apartments, as well as roughly 7,500-square feet of office space, to the popular East Baltimore neighborhood.
