Baltimore's apartment boom continues: A Washington developer has proposed converting a 17-story former Bank of America office building near Mercy Medical Center into 338 apartments.

Monument Realty, which presented designs to the city's Urban Design & Architecture Review Panel last week, hopes to start interior demolition in March. The firm does not yet own the yellow brick building, which would receive a significant makeover if its proposal moves forward, a spokeswoman for the firm said.

The 225 N. Calvert St. property last sold in 2011 for $4.45 million, according to state land records. It was scheduled to be sold at auction in 2012, when it was about 7 percent occupied, but never changed hands.

The city design panel also gave a final go-ahead Thursday to designs for 351 new apartments in a six-story building at 611 S. Charles St., to be developed by ZOM Mid Atlantic Inc. The two-block parcel is the former site of a specialist hospital.
