Historic Annapolis Post Office
Maryland Dept of General Services: Annapolis, MD
JPA is providing MEP design for the modernization of this historic facility, which is to be added to the complex of Maryland state offices and tunnels in Annapolis. Built in 1901, the Annapolis Post Office was in operation until 2015, when the state bought the property for $3.2M. The USPS continued to use it until 2017, when it was shut down and design and construction teams have been working since then to transform the nearly 120-year facility into state government offices.
Phase 1 of this multi-phase, $16.8M project involved design and restoration of the building envelope, including lightning protection; Phase 2 encompasses includes interior tenant fit-out and restoration of historic areas. Preservationists, local architects, and interested citizens are keeping a close eye on this Maryland Historical Trust property and the preservation of its architectural features.
