Chicago Title moves to E. Fayette St.
Chicago Title Insurance Co., a fixture on St. Paul Street for 85 years, has moved to 19 E. Fayette St., formerly the Baltimore Federal Financial Building, which has been renamed the Chicago Title Insurance Building.
Chicago Title will occupy the third floor of the building, which was modeled after the Governor's Palace in Williamsburg, Va., and built in 1950.
The company has a tenure of 111 years in Baltimore, first as Maryland Title and Trust Co., then as Title Guaranty Co. and SAFECO Title Insurance Corp. before becoming Chicago Title Insurance Co., according to John Obzud, the firm's vice president. "This building conveys our long history in Baltimore, yet it allows us to create a new future for our company. We feel totally at home here," he said.
Lincoln Green Associates of Columbia purchased 19 E. Fayette St. in 1986 and spent more than $500,000 on renovations.
