The Maryland Historical Trust picked six construction projects — two in Baltimore — to receive more than $9 million in tax credits.
The six, representing about $50 million in construction costs, were chosen from among 19 applicants seeking about $32 million in total credits.
The state program, started in 1996, has been used to redevelop numerous projects over the years, including the Can Company in Canton and the Tide Point corporate campus in Locust Point.
Both those projects were led by developer C. William “Bill” Struever. His Cross Street Partners was a winner this time around. It’s developing the former Hoen Lithograph plant at 2101 E. Biddle St.
The Hoen Lithograph project was approved for $3 million. The 85,000-square-foot building was the home of the lithograph company from 1902 to 1981.
It’s being converted to a mix of uses, including a house, a food production kitchen, office space for startups and nonprofits and a brewery and market rate apartments.
