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.

Eric Holcomb, director of Baltimore’s preservation commission, told members this month that Richter is now planning to reduce the height of the 10-story apartment building he proposed to construct in place of the Eddie’s of Mount Vernon grocery store and two other structures.

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.

Baltimore’s Commission for Historical and Architectural Preservation voted 8 to 1 today, with one abstention, to approve a $10 million plan to build 51 apartments on three levels above the carriage houses.
