Standing on a podium set up inside the hollowed-out shell of the old A. Hoen & Co. building in East Baltimore on Tuesday, Ella Durant touched on a distant memory of the structure from her childhood.

“Third grade, my elementary school, we took a tour through this building when it was operational,” Durant, president of the Collington Square Neighborhood Association, said. “Now, it sat empty—oh my goodness—35, 40 years. It’s coming alive again.”
