Continuing their work of reviving the Remington neighborhood, Seawall Development is introducing a new style of food halls to the Baltimore community. The rehabilitated 50,000-square-foot warehouse will serve as a restaurant incubator featuring 10 plug-and-play kitchens set up as micro-restaurants and rotating kitchen space for pop-up concepts. The goal is to help aspiring chefs launch their restaurant ideas by eliminating the barriers for opening full brick-and-mortar restaurants. Located on Remington Avenue and 29th Street, the space will feature 15-foot tall windows and ceilings with roll up garage doors and 12,000 square feet of common open seating. In addition to chef-driven food and drink concepts and exhibition style kitchens the warehouse will also house a yoga studio and office space.
Floura Teeter is providing landscape architectural design for the streetscape and outdoor amenities associated with R House’s development. The streetscape design features Remington stone and plenty of bike parking for cyclists. The landscape design also includes street trees and planters to add much-needed greenery to the site. The site materials and furnishings selected complement the style established for the mixed-use development on the 2700 block of Remington Avenue to provide an overall aesthetic character for the rejuvenated Remington neighborhood.
R. House will add to Baltimore’s growing food hall/market scene.
