“Located in the heart of Baltimore, Station North was the first area in Baltimore to receive the State designation as an Arts & Entertainment District in 2002. Spanning the neighborhoods of Charles North, Greenmount West, and Barclay, Station North is a diverse collection of artist live-work spaces, galleries, rowhomes, and businesses, all just steps away from Penn Station, Mount Vernon, Charles Village, the Maryland Institute College of Art, the University of Baltimore, and Johns Hopkins University.”

According to public tax records, the buildings were constructed circa 1900.

Successful TOD projects also address ways to ensure personal security and safety, encourage economic and community development, respect the area’s cultural history, and strengthen the connections between transit and surrounding neighborhoods,” according to the Baltimore City Department of Planning website.
