Cross Street Partners and City Life are working together to revitalize an 80,000 square foot historic manufacturing facility in the heart of East Baltimore to be a place of opportunity. Combining a job training facility, adult literacy center, community space, and offices, Hoen & Co will transform the area.
The building has been vacant since 1981, but still retains many features of its 19th century design. Historic masonry, large warehouse style windows, industrial barn doors, and original lithograph blocks are some of the details that remain for reuse.
Hoen & Co was one of the most prolific lithograph printing companies in the world, occupying the building from 1902 to 1981. The rich history of printmaking and the industrial character of the building will drive the design.
