The Fox Building in the Hampden neighborhood in Baltimore is an example of a successful refurbishment of an old factory building. The adaptive reuse of this early 20th- century structure helps keep intact the neighborhood’s rich industrial history. This was the original home of Noxzema and more recently, Fox Industries. The structure has been transformed into a vibrant mixed-use community of apartments and artist work spaces. Many of the building’s original features have been retained and restored, such as original maple wood plank flooring, glass block windows, soaring ceilings, and much more. On the front side of the building are loft-style apartments, and the 18 studios are located in the old loading dock area in the back.
The artists will mount a first annual “Artists’ Showcase” at the end of May. The opening is scheduled for Friday, May 31st, and the artists will be there to talk about their work. A wide variety of disciplines and techniques will make for an exciting show. The group includes painters, photographers, print makers, fashion designers, jewelers, actors and sculptors.
Join us in celebrating this newly revitalized space!
