Three years after the former Odell’s nightclub was sold for redevelopment, the long-dormant building has new tenants and a new youth-oriented mission.

The Tudor-esque structure at 19-21 E. North Avenue will be converted to an arts and technology hub, with the help of a grant from a new investment fund designed to spark revitalization of the Station North Arts and Entertainment District.

Young Audiences of Maryland/Arts for Learning signed a lease this winter to move its headquarters into the building’s first floor and basement by mid-2021.

Seeking a role in determining how Woodberry’s historic Tractor Building is renovated, Baltimore’s preservation commission has made it a temporary city landmark.

Over the objections of the building’s owner, Baltimore’s Commission for Historical and Architectural Preservation (CHAP) voted 5 to 4 yesterday to add the Tractor Building to its Potential Landmark List, an action that gives the panel authority to review and approve proposed changes to the building for at least the next six months.
