Historic Station North building now home to MICA Graduate Studio Center
This brick warehouse-style building, a former sewing plant purchased by the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2000, has been masterfully renovated to embody the area’s new designation as Maryland’s official Arts and Entertainment District. As consultants for Cho Benn Holback + Associates, James Posey Associates designed the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems for the renovated six-story, 120,000 square foot home for various graduate programs, including multifunctional studios, galleries, and meeting rooms. In addition to a complete new HVAC system, a new heating water system and custom studio and gallery lighting help contribute to long-term energy savings. This building earned a Baltimore City Green Building Standards two-star rating, equivalent of a USGBC LEED Silver rating. Read more about it here.
