The Future of Transit-Oriented Development

Baltimore Penn Station

Baltimore Penn Station

Baltimore, Maryland

Fueled by an ambitious vision, a multi-phased, mixed-use expansion of Penn Station will revitalize the historic train station and transform the surrounding area. Working largely within the headhouse, or train station, we are laying the groundwork for a mixed-use development that will grow up alongside the historic structure.  

Our work encompasses several projects to restore the headhouse and prepare it for its next century of service. The building will continue to serve as the city’s main passenger rail station, but upper floors will be converted to high quality office spaces. The renewed facility will be a vital transportation hub and commercial destination in the heart of Baltimore.

On behalf of the entire Penn Station Partners team, we are incredibly excited for this opportunity to reimagine one of Baltimore’s great transportation hubs.

A Century of Service

Baltimore Penn Station has been in continuous operation since 1911. Like other “Penn Stations” in the Northeast, it was built for the Pennsylvania Railroad. Now the eighth-busiest station in the Amtrak system, it serves over one million passengers per year.
