Walbrook Mill Demolition – Project C.O.R.E.

Today the Baltimore City Department of Housing and Community Development joined Governor Larry Hogan to celebrate the recent milestone of more than 1,000 units of blight removed through Project C.O.R.E. at the kickoff of the redevelopment of Walbrook Mill in West Baltimore. Project C.O.R.E., or Creating Opportunities for Renewal and Enterprise, is a multi-year city-state partnership to demolish vacant and derelict buildings in Baltimore and replace them with green space or redevelopment.

“Project C.O.R.E. is making a difference in Baltimore City,” said Governor Hogan. “I recently announced that more than 1,000 units of blight have been removed in the city thanks to the initiative. That announcement, coupled with redevelopments such as Walbrook Mill, shows that Project C.O.R.E. is truly having a transformative effect on the city.”

Walbrook Mill, a 5 acre abandoned lumber yard in close proximity to Coppin State University, will be redeveloped in phases, beginning with today’s demolition of a blighted warehouse building. Neighborhood Housing Services of Baltimore, partnering with Coppin Heights Community Development Corporation and Osprey Property Company, has received Project C.O.R.E. funding to prepare the site for the redevelopment. The plan for the site, at full build out, is to include approximately 140 affordable and market rate rental apartments and townhomes; 9,000 square feet of North Ave commercial/retail space; and 32,000 square feet of warehouse/light industrial space for workforce development opportunities.
