Crown, Cork & Seal buildings may be familiar to Baltimoreans. The buildings that were once owned by the company that came about after William Painter’s invention of the Crown Cork bottle cap in Baltimore are now home to new creativity like the studios in the Copy Cat building in Station North, or the home of tech companies like the Emerging Technology Center in Highlandtown. Even the Baltimore Design School is in a former Crown Cork and Seal building.
The original company, however, is still alive as the global company Crown Holding. But it’s about to lose one of its last buildings in the Baltimore area.
