That empty ice house? It’s time for its redevelopment! The Baltimore City Department of Transportation Red Line Office, along with their partners AIC Development, The Midtown-Edmondson Improvement Association, People’s Community Health Centers and Bon Secours Health System, was awarded a $55,000 grant to preform an analysis of the market, economic feasibility, and stakeholder engagement for the West Baltimore MARC Ice House Pre-Development Planning Initiative.

To learn about the Ice House and why it is a building that should be preserved, please view CPHA’s YouTube video, prepared by a CPHA intern with the participation of Baltimore Heritage.

The grant could provide an additional public/private workforce and financial funding to complete an environmental survey and conceptual plans for the Ice House. The analysis will provide the data necessary to adequately plan and design the Ice House and surrounding area.  This is an important step in completing the transit oriented development at this Red Line stop.  It will also be very helpful to the communities that surround the dilapidated building.
