South Street Centre Historic Approval

The City of Frederick Historic Preservation Commission recently approved the development of approximately 3.5 acres on West South Street in downtown Frederick for a state-of-the art 152-home intergenerational apartment community.  The development includes the renovation of two historic buildings and the addition of three new construction buildings.  Typically all projects bring learning opportunities to the studio and South Street Centre was no exception. The many complexities of this project include being one of the first “twinning” financial deals in Maryland, the requirement of preserving historic buildings and weaving three new construction buildings into the historic fabric of the City of Frederick all presented new learning opportunities for our studio.  These complexities also presented opportunities for Studio 343 to showcase the depth of knowledge of our team.  We are looking forward to seeing the completion of the project which is slated for early 2022.
