A lot has been going on in Station North in recent months–even if the WaPo still doesn’t get it. And if you needed any further confirmation that the burgeoning neighborhood is definitely gentrifying, now you’ve got it: Developers are planning Station North’s first apartment/retail complex, the Baltimore Business Journal reports.
The proposed development would be built by SA+A Development, the folks behind the shaky redevelopment of the Chesapeake, also in Station North. Plans are still in the early stages, but the development would include apartments priced at $2.20 a square foot, artist studios, and a Milk & Honey market on the first floor. There are some questions about the proposed glass-box design.
And if all this news of new construction, investment, and development makes current Station North residents nervous, Ernst Valery, the principal of SA+A, thinks they shouldn’t worry: “A lot of times in New York, artists create a community and it’s just so yuppies can take it over. Our thing is, artists created this community and they should be there in the future.”
