Excerpt from the Baltimore Business Journal:
H&S Bakery has received initial approval from the city’s historic preservation panel to expand its Fells Point production-and-distribution facility.
The expansion would add nearly 25,000 square feet to the current warehouse on South Caroline Street, bringing total square footage up to 62,000 square feet. An historic, industrial building at 623 S. Caroline St. will be incorporated into the proposed warehouse, but will remain vacant since it can’t be brought up to flood-plain regulations, said Eric Holcomb, executive director of the city’s Commission for Historical and Architectural Preservation.
CHAP recommended approval of the proposed expansion, which includes renovation of H&S’ existing facility. The overhaul will result in partial closure of Dallas Street, which is owned by H&S, but will still allow rear access to private residences located on the same block.
