612 Washington Boulevard

This building used to house Ecklof & Company, a restaurant supply company.  After they went out of business in 2000/2001, the building was sold to the current owner — it’s been empty ever since.  Grand plans for a condo development came and went — this is situated on a narrow one-way street, and parking for multiple units would be a nightmare. It’s a shame to see this lovely building continue to deteriorate.

    Every time I walk past here, on either Washington or Portland Street, it depresses me that such a cool building is just sitting there. Particularly considering the relatively nice neighborhood and ballpark that surround it.

      It really is a wonderful neighborhood — however, it’s situated oddly, and I think it will be a challenge to anyone who wants to develop it.

    The redevelopment plan for this building provided interior parking spaces for all of the apartment units. It will be a wonderful project some day. Let’s try not to discourage any interested parties. Here’s a snippet from the project description: “Fifteen apartments, ranging from approximately 800 sf to 1,200 sf each, and 3,000 sf of retail space are proposed, along with on-site parking for the residents. The design restores facades, adds a new fourth floor, community space and shared terraces with great north and south views of Baltimore City.”

      Sorry, but I heard from neighbors who were vehemently opposed to this project when it was first proposed — and parking was one of the major issues. The original plan only had a few parking spaces included, and neighbors felt it wasn’t enough.

      My aim is to not discourage or encourage — but to report.
