News & Announcements Updated Plans Presented for 10-Story, 333,000 sq. ft. Office and Biotech Building on Martin Luther King Boulevard

The University of Maryland BioPark and developer Wexford Science & Technology revealed updated plans to the Baltimore City Planning Department’s Urban Design & Architecture Advisory Panel (UDAAP) last Thursday for a $200-plus million, 10-story, 333,000 sq. ft. office and biotech building at the northwest corner of Martin Luther King Blvd. and W. Baltimore St.

The new building, which is being called 4 MLK, is Phase One of a two-phrase project that will redevelop a Poppleton/Hollins Market block that borders Martin Luther King Blvd., W. Baltimore St., W. Fayette St., and N. Fremont Ave.

New to the project since the last presentation is a 105 ft. above-ground parking garage with first-floor retail on a vacant lot between W. Fayette St., N. Fremont Ave., and W. Fairmount Ave. This garage replaces a below-ground parking garage that was planned on the same block as 4 MLK. Gregory Herlong, director of development for Wexford, said the change was due to the high water table in the area and that an above-ground parking garage would cost less. The garage will deliver at the same time as 4 MLK.
