About this event
** Please note that this is an active construction site. Guests must wear flat, closed toe shoes, and may be asked to wear a hard hat.**
The Baltimore Penn Station has served as the primary transportation hub for Baltimore – the eighth busiest in the country, with more than three million Amtrak and MARC passengers moving through each year.
The last major renovation to Penn Station was in 1984. The master conceptual plan first calls for the full historic preservation of the station. Working closely with Amtrak, the development team will return Penn Station to a much-needed state of good repair by making vital core and shell improvements to polish the station’s appearance and increase overall functionality.
Through adaptive reuse, the development team will respect the historical character of Penn Station while introducing modern sensibility. The usable spaces will be programmed with new retail and restaurants on the concourse level, as well as office space on the three upper levels. A repurposed Penn Station will serve as the prominent anchor for all future development that springs up on the adjacent properties while remaining the lively beating heart of the vibrant surrounding neighborhoods.
