Quinn Evans Architects to acquire Cho Benn Holback + Associates

Baltimore-based architecture firm Cho Benn Holback + Associates has been purchased by a Washington-based Quinn Evans Architects.

Cho Benn Holback is expected to continue operations from their current location on Charles Street, according to announcement Tuesday from Quinn Evans. There’s no expected change in leadership or operations at Cho Benn Holback, but the firm will now be called “Cho Benn Holback + Associates, a Quinn Evans Company.”

Cho Benn Holback’s notable projects in Baltimore include the renovation of Center Stage, the conversion of the Mercantile Trust Building into the Chesapeake Shakespeare Theater’s new space and the transformation of the Open Works building.

“Quinn Evans Architects is well known for its resourcefulness in urban planning and design, and that focus is what has inspired our own work through the years as well. We are looking to help rebuild and reinvigorate communities,” Diane Cho, one of the founders of the eponymous economic firm, said in a statement. “Working together, we’ll have an opportunity to take our experience to other cities, and bring Quinn Evans’ perspective to our work here in Baltimore as well.”
