Ward building project will be topic of forum


A $75 million plan to convert the former Montgomery Ward & Co. catalog building near Carroll Park to a business and technology park with room for more than 5,000 employees will be the subject of a noontime forum tomorrow at the Johns Hopkins University's Downtown Center, Charles and Saratoga streets.

One of the building's first tenants will be the Maryland Department of the Environment. The development team plans to renovate the building as a model of environmentally sensitive design.

Developer Samuel K. Himmelrich Jr, will lead the discussion, which is sponsored by the Baltimore Architecture Foundation. Other speakers include architect Werner Mueller of DMJM and design specialist Katrin Scholtz-Barth of HOK Architects.
