Baltimore city’s Board of Estimates endorsed plans for the Baltimore Food Hub, a $16 million campus for food-related businesses and entrepreneurs to be opened in East Baltimore in fall 2014.

As Technical.ly Baltimore reported, the Food Hub will be “a multi-building, multi-purpose food operations campus, complete with an incubator for food-related businesses, an urban farming operation managed by Big City Farms and a for-rent commercial kitchen, among other amenities.” Slated for redevelopment is the old Eastern Pumping Station at 1801 E. Oliver St.

The Daily Record has more on the Board of Estimates decision:

The board’s vote on Wednesday was for a local government resolution in support of the food hub prior to application for a state Neighborhood BusinessWorks Program grant for $500,000. Those funds will help to redevelop the site.
