CityLab spotlights a plan afoot in Southwest Baltimore to turn vacant industrial buildings into a collection of makerspaces for light manufacturing.
The initial ideas for industry in the space include apparel manufacturing, a “Waste-To-Wealth” incubator and food-and-drink startups.
However, the buildings that writer Anthony Flint got a look at are going to take a lot of rehab to bring back. As planner Andy Cook put it to him, “It’s going to take some doing.”
Makerspace plans are starting to sprout up like the trees that grow out of the former factory buildings.
Under Armour’s Plank is bringing an innovation center — with makerspaces — to a former city bus garage in Port Covington this fall. Last week, the Baltimore Arts Realty Corp. unveiled plans for a new arts incubator in Station North, the Baltimore Business Journal reports.
