Driving down Russell Street on the way out of Baltimore, it’s hard to miss the giant orange warehouse sign: WHAT IS AND WHAT CAN BE. This is the unofficial mission statement for the non-profit Second Chance. Its official mission: Retrain, Reclaim and Renew. That is, to retrain people, many just out of prison, for full employment; to reclaim building materials and architectural salvage for use in renovation and new construction, and to renew usable materials to help eliminate waste in the environment.

The developer behind a new four-story apartment complex coming to Woodberry has bowed to calls from neighbors and preservationists to incorporate a pair of 1840s stone mill homes into the building’s design.
