Vision

Transformation

The Vision

Baltimore-based real estate companies Cross Street Partners and City Life Historic Properties are partnering with Strong City Baltimore to undertake the 85,000 square foot historic preservation of the Hoen Lithograph building. This architectural treasure, which has sat vacant for 35 years, will be repurposed as a vibrant mixed-use complex that provides job opportunities, job training, and neighborhood amenities called the Center for Neighborhood Innovation.

When complete, The Center for Neighborhood Innovation (CNI), a new model for neighborhood transformation, will convene an interdisciplinary group of social entrepreneurs, non-profits, service providers, researchers, and community members committed to solving the issues facing our most distressed under-resourced neighborhoods and provide with the space and support they need to affect positive community change. Unlike traditional project-based initiatives that focus on a single issue, place-based efforts such as CNI address the multiple issues presented by a single geographic area. The interdisciplinary group will help students and residents move step-by-step along the continuum from schooling to job training to career building.

Hoen Lithograph is expected to catalyze revitalization activity in the surrounding neighborhood, including the creation of affordable housing, streetscape improvements, installation of public art, and community programming.

Restoration

The Building

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.

History


Preservation

The History

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.
