We’re proud to get a mention in the Baltimore Development Corporation’s (BDC) 2009 Annual Report. Samuelson’s is part of the development team for our block called Balti-West 400 which includes David S Brown Enterprises and A & R Development Corporation.
400 Block of West Baltimore Street
Balti-West 400, LLC (David S. Brown and A & R Development
Corporation) has moved forward with a $5 million retail based redevelopment of the 400 block of West Baltimore Street. A new PNC Bank anchors the north side of the block at 426 West Baltimore Street (at North Paca Street). The south side of the block features Samuelson’s Diamonds, a family-owned jewelry store that started in business in 1922 on Pennsylvania Avenue (the business was moved downtown to the corner of Baltimore and Paca Streets – 426 West Baltimore Street – in 1972).
With the Hippodrome Theater anchoring the northeast side of our block, this promises to be one of the most exciting areas in Baltimore. We will keep you updated on the new tenants.
