A historic church on Roland Avenue could soon come on the market for redevelopment, if Baltimore’s Planning Commission approves a request to subdivide it from surrounding property.
For residents of Hamilton-Lauraville, the neighborhoods in Baltimore’s northeast corner represent the best of urban and suburban living: the area is bisected by a vibrant, walkable commercial corridor and is near enough city amenities for worthwhile enjoyment, while its abundance of single-family homes with sizeable yards and proximity to parks offer plenty of green spaces.
In Hamilton-Lauraville, one of the country’s oldest continuously operating children’s bookstores is approaching its final chapter
After 43 years in business, including 32 in Roland Park and nearly three in Hamilton-Lauraville, The Children’s Bookstore is closing its doors.
Owner Melissa Doty has set July 25 as the final day of operation for the independent bookstore at 4717 Harford Road, part of the SoHa Row commercial district.
It will be the final chapter for one of the oldest continuously-operating children’s bookstores in America. It was also one of the original tenants of James Rouse’s Harborplace development, back when the twin pavilions featured local merchants rather than chain stores.
Zeke’s Coffee in Lauraville is plotting a move, but it’s not going far.
