The landmark building that housed the storied Haussner's restaurant in Highlandtown will soon come crumbling down as work crews make way for an apartment building on the site.
The corner building at Eastern Avenue and Clinton Street has been vacant for the last decade, and is scheduled to be demolished next week. The Garver Development Group is replacing the building with a new, 65-unit apartment complex. It's expected to be the tallest building in Highlandtown.
A beloved dining destination known for its art collection and Baltimore charm, Haussner's was in business 73 years before it closed in 1999. Scroll through the gallery above to look back at the restaurant over the years.
