Miller's Court 2009
Baltimore’s Remington neighborhood is undergoing rapid change. The quiet, mostly residential neighborhood in the city’s north central area has seen an influx of new uses – and new residents – in the last decade.
Between 2000 and 2010, Remington’s population went up 7 percent, while Baltimore’s population fell. Younger people in particular moved to Remington, with the population of Millennials jumping 55 percent in the decade.
In 2013, Remington was named Baltimore’s Neighborhood of the Year by City Paper.
The neighborhood’s changes are in no small part thanks to the conversion of an old tin manufacturing warehouse into Miller’s Court, home to residences for city teachers and offices for nonprofit organizations. The historic warehouse was restored using, among other funds, a state Sustainable Communities Tax Credit.
Developers Seawall Inc. renovated 30 vacant rowhouses and sold them to teachers.
Investments in the Miller’s Court development started a domino effect of positive change in the neighborhood, and results throughout Remington have been dramatic: a new theater at the site of an old automobile repair shop, 30 rowhouses for teachers sprinkled throughout the neighborhood, and redevelopment of the 29th Street commercial area. Community gardens and public art are dressing up the streetscape.
