McHenry Row II is an adaptive reuse project representing Phase 2 of an urban infill master plan, transforming a 20th century manufacturing plant into 21st century offices in south Baltimore. HCM landscape architects provided planning and landscape design. The Master Plan includes office, retail and multifamily residential.
Phase I (by others) included retail and apartments. Phase II and future phases planned by the landscape architect involved McHenry Row II, multifamily housing and reincorporation of youth baseball fields. McHenry Row II includes the reuse of two manufacturing buildings. The early 1900’s structures were built for Coca-Cola. The smaller building now serves as Phillip’s Seafood headquarters. The larger building with vertical addition houses offices for Under Armor and Mindgrub Technologies. The landscape weaves historical and modern.
Taking cues from the glass addition, the design is contemporary. Warm wood, cool concrete and crunchy gravel provide a tactile garden for people to enjoy. The path features jogs and partitions providing a variety of experience and space. Plantings treat rain water and the green roof bridges between buildings.
