With three new tenants, the Lion Brothers Building in the Hollins Market area is fully leased.
Spring Garden Lending, Culinary Architecture and Neopol Savory Smokery have signed leases at the 37,500-square-foot former factory building, developer Cross Street Partners said Tuesday.
The additions bring “life and excitement to the Hollins Market area that will help spur redevelopment in a part of Baltimore where momentum in building,” said Bill Struever, chief executive of Cross Street Partners, in a statement.
Built in 1885, the building originally served as a livery stable. The Lion Brothers Co. purchased it in 1911 and used it as a clothing and embroidery factory.
Cross Street Partners took up redevelopment of the then-vacant property in 2015.
Spring Garden Lending is a Philadelphia-based private lender that is expanding to Baltimore with its office in the Lion Brothers Building.
Belvedere Square-based Neopol Savory Smokery is expanding production and processing operations to the building in March.
Culinary Architecture, based in Pigtown, recently opened a cafe with a full-service coffee bar on the first floor of the building.
Other tenants include affordable housing developer Enterprise Homes, Baltimore Community Lending and University of Maryland Baltimore County’s intermedia and digital arts program.
University of Maryland recently opened a new innovation and entrepreneurship space in the building called Graduate Research Innovation District, or GRID.
