City Garage

Baltimore, Maryland

MGMA led the creative effort for the Master Plan and Design Concept for City Garage, located in the Port Covington region. The 136,452-square-foot warehouse was an abandoned City of Baltimore Truck Maintenance Facility in a failing part of town.

The single-story facility renovations included new windows, aluminum panels, and roof, as well as replacement of all electrical and sprinkler services. The design team also incorporated a tenant white-box layout for anticipated future use, and full renovation of existing Mechanical Plumbing, Fire Protection and Electrical (MEP) Systems.

Construction of seven new “white box” mixed-use tenant bays provides office, warehouse and light industrial applications in half of the building. The remaining 160,000 square feet features a renovated, warm, lit shell for an Innovation Center tenant.

Tenant spaces are positioned around a central circulation spine called Main Street. This circulation area exemplifies a place where fledgling business can flourish in a nurturing environment. The renovation also included construction of new common share restroom facilities.
