The Commercial Group hired Design Collective to design the $45 million renovation and adaptive use of the historic Hendler Creamery Building in Baltimore City. The proposed mixed-use and redevelopment project will encompass an entire block and consist of approximately 276 apartment units and 11,000 square feet of retail space. The building will also feature a pool and two new courtyards that are connected by a mews and centered around a historic smokestack. The Hendler building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2007, recognized for its notable history, uses and contributions over its 120-year history. The Romanesque structure initially served as a powerhouse for Baltimore’s cable car service in 1892 and was later converted into a theater in 1903 that hosted opera, vaudeville and early film. In 1912, Lionel Hendler purchased the building and transformed it into one of the nation’s largest and first fully-automated ice cream factories.
