Developer Chris Janian has decided to explore saving Martick’s, or at least part of it.

After failing to obtain permission to tear down the former Martick’s Restaurant Francais building to make way for a six-story apartment project, Janian has come back with a compromise proposal to save and restore the front third of the structure at 214 W. Mulberry St., if the city’s preservation commission will allow him to tear down the rear two-thirds.

The former home of Martick’s Restaurant Francais got a reprieve from the wrecking ball this week, when Baltimore’s preservation commission determined the building contributes to the Howard Street Commercial Historic District and encouraged its owner to find a way to save it.
