Construction Date:1891
Architect:Charles Carson; Urban Design Group (2016)


The Central Savings Bank is one of the nicer Romanesque Revival designs surviving in downtown Baltimore. Spared destruction in the 1904 Baltimore Fire which stopped at its southern wall, it is a good example of adaptive reuse turning upper floor office space into luxury apartments and the former ground floor banking room into a café. It includes a 5-story atrium, original bank vaults, and view of Baltimore.

The building is a fine example of Romanesque Revival architecture, and the intersection here became an unofficial architects district with a cluster of the city’s firms located here. The building served as an early meeting place for AIA Baltimore members.
