Martin Millspaugh, mastermind behind Charles Center, has died

0

Martin Millspaugh, a former journalist with the Evening Sun who later helped orchestrate the redevelopment of Charles Center and the Inner Harbor, has died. He was 92.

As the CEO of Charles Center Inner Harbor Management, Inc. starting in 1965, Millspaugh shepherded the project to revitalize a 33-acre plot on the western side of downtown, eventually leading to the construction or renovation of more than two dozen buildings, at a time when people and businesses were fleeing the city.

In the next decade, Millspaugh would work with developer James Rouse to convert the area around the waterfront, which had mostly been used for shipping, into a central tourist attraction. Rouse built the pavilions that make up Harborplace, a marketplace of food stalls and shops that many cities soon tried to replicate.

He went on to lead a formidable development career during which he consulted on projects in 90 cities on five continents.

A memorial service is scheduled for Dec. 15 at 1 p.m.. at the Church of the Redeemer. The family is asking for donations to be made to the Waterfront Partnership in his name.

In 2011, Millspaugh was featured on our site as part of a feature called “Eight Over 80,” highlighting seniors “who still live life to the fullest.” Below is the transcript from Millspaugh’s entry.
