New developers selected for Baltimore’s Clipper Mill community aim to add 48 townhouses and about 99 apartments over the next several years, according to preliminary plans that will be presented to the community this week.

Will the cavernous Tractor Building at Clipper Mill survive the latest wave of development in the historic mill community?
That question is likely to be addressed in the next week, when developers meet with community residents to provide an update on their latest plans.
A developer will proceed with plans to build an apartment building with nearly 80 units on Clipper Road in Woodberry, but will preserve a pair of historic 1840s stone mill houses as part of the design, according to an architect working on the project.
The owners of a 17.4-acre section of Woodberry’s Clipper Mill complex on Monday night unveiled part of their vision for the neighborhood: As many as four mixed-use apartment buildings, each with built-in parking garages, and a community relying heavily upon Baltimore’s light rail system and public transportation.
In the 1800s, Clipper Mill famously housed the largest machine shop in the country, Poole and Hunt Foundry and Machine Works. Machinery ranging from steam engines to locomotive parts was produced there and helped power the Industrial Revolution. Fast forward to 1995, long after it closed down, and an eight-alarm fire nearly destroyed what remained of the factory’s Assembly Building. But in the past two decades, the remaining Clipper Mill complex has been revitalized and is now home to a vibrant residential and commercial hub.

“Think of us as an adult candy store, except that unlike candy stores where the candy is already made for you, here you make your own for a fraction of the price.” This is how Nepenthe (Baltimore’s wonderful new beer and wine making supply shop) describes what they do. And color us charmed. Anyone in the Baltimore area who’s dabbled in home beer brewing or winemaking knows that up until last month, that meant driving down to Maryland Homebrew in Columbia (which is a great store, don’t get us wrong—but for what you pay in time and gas, you could just buy an imported six-pack and call it a day). So we are so, so, so happy to welcome to town Nepenthe—a new shop in Clipper Mill that has everything you need to brew your own—including classes, recipes, and even equipment you can use on site.
