Development in Remington receives $100,000 Md. grant

RentalsMaryland Department of Business and Economic Development

The company redeveloping a 100-year-old building in Baltimore's Remington neighborhood received a $100,000 grant from the state to support environmental remediation, the Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development announced Wednesday.

The grant money, which will support about a quarter of the remediation expenses Seawall Development expects to incur, is from the Brownfield Revitalization Incentive Program, the state said.

Seawall Development plans a $3.8 million renovation of the building at 2600 N. Howard St. When the rehab is complete, the 22,000-square-foot building will include 14,000 square feet of office space, a theater, and a restaurant and butcher shop run by Spike Gjerde, the restaurateur behind Woodberry Kitchen and Artifact Coffee, the state said.

"The funding provided by the Department furthers our ability to offer below market rental rates for a community theater and non-profit office tenant," said Evan Morville, a Seawall partner. Single Carrot Theatre and Young Audiences Maryland will use the theatre, the state said.

Seawall expects to have the building complete in December. The developer previously received a $525,000 grant from the state for the redevelopment of Union Mill in Baltimore's Jones Falls Valley. The mill is now housing for teachers and office space for nonprofits, according to the state.
