Text description provided by the architects. When originally constructed in 1923, the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad grain elevator was the world’s largest and fastest. Located along the city’s southernmost peninsula, the 24-story, 300ft. building was strategically sited for the movement of grain and other agricultural products to be shipped around the world. Turner Development transformed the towering industrial landmark, incorporating the original grain tower and thirteen silos, into the final design of the project which is now known as Silo Point.

In it’s design, Silo Point exists as both a reminder of the economy and culture that first transformed Baltimore into a major city, and a foreshadowing of the city’s emerging 21st century economy, culture, and population. Glass, concrete, steel, and soul, are in the heart of the development.

The conversion of Silo Point from an abandoned grain elevator into contemporary, urban condominiums and mixed-use development by Turner Development Group was inspired by one core idea: the best vision for a city’s future cannot ignore its past. Silo Point now boasts almost one million square feet, including 228 luxury condominiums and 20,000 square feet of retail, restaurants, spa and salon, and office space.
