BDC seeks proposals for two Pigtown buildings

Developers are being sought by the city to convert two buildings totaling 7,760 square feet into a mixed-use project in the city’s historic Pigtown community.

The Baltimore Development Corp. Wednesday issued a request for proposals for 906 Washington Blvd., two structures that are 110 years old and share an address. The buildings are located within the 165-acre Pigtown-Washington Village Urban Renewal Area in Southwest Baltimore, also known as Washington Village.

The eastern structure is a former public bath house, and the western structure is the former Engine No. 10 Baltimore City Fire Station, BDC officials said.

The site is located close to Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard with easy access to Interstate 295 and 95, near the University of Maryland BioPark, Oriole Park at Camden Yards and M&T Bank Stadium.

Pigtown was named after pigs that used to run wild along the streets on the way to slaughter at local meat-packing houses after being released from train cars along the B&O Railroad line. The central district was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2006.

Proposals are due to the BDC by Sept. 15.
