5 North Calhoun St. Community Center | December 17, 2021

MC is proud to partner with PI.KL Studio and BKM in the design of the new Community Center at 5 North Calhoun Street in West Baltimore as part of the Renaissance Foundations commitment to improving the health and wellness of the area. The existing 33,000 square foot building, which was once a gelato plant, will be repurposed to house a community gathering space, commercial kitchen, and classroom spaces.  MC analyzed modifications to the existing building framing to accept new large windows, skylights, and floor openings to bring natural light into the building to revitalize the existing space. Demolition is underway and the groundbreaking ceremony can be seen here: https://www.lifebridgehealth.org/WBRF/WBRF.aspx
