There have been a few recent searches on Baltimore Fishbowl for Loft-Style Apartments, so we thought we’d reach back into the archives and share a couple of posts we’ve done spotlighting three great loft-style apartment communities in the City. Take a gander…if you’re interested, make sure to contact the leasing office for the current rates.

From Station North’s grand old warehouses to the mills of Hampden and Woodberry, these buildings stand as vivid reminders of Baltimore’s industrial history. But with many of those industries now gone elsewhere, a new kind of living space has sprung up, inspired by the style of these buildings that helped to shape and define our city. Loft living is alive and well here, and becoming more popular all the time. With such fabulous new lofts becoming available all the time, it’s not difficult to see why.

Name: Chesapeake Commons
Cross Streets: North Eutaw and George Streets
Neighborhood: Sometimes Market Center, sometimes Seton Hill, sometimes Mount Vernon (mostly Seton Hill but v. close to Mt. Vernon)
Year Built: 1899 and repurposed as apartments in the early ’80s
The story: The Chesapeake Commons building was originally built in 1899 as one of the first public high schools in the country. The building was designed by Baldwin and Pennington, who were Baltimore’s premier architects at the time. Some of the firms other notable projects included the Maryland Club, the Fidelity Building, the Mount Royal Station, the Camden Station, and part of the Pier Four Power Plant. The student population outgrew the building by the 1920s, but it stayed in use, housing educational institutions, until it was abandoned in 1978. A few years later, the structure was gutted by a devastating fire. The once beautiful building stood charred and dilapidating for two years until a development company saw its potential and rehabilitated it to the 98-unit apartment building that it is today.
