The historic Centre Theatre, vacant for 25 years, is now the most spectacular building in Baltimore’s Station North Arts & Entertainment District. When Jubilee Baltimore acquired the Centre in 2013, rainwater poured through thirty-foot holes in the roof while vegetation and trees grew through the walls and floors. The building interior was infested with mold and asbestos.
This $19 million project converted a 66,000-sf vacant building into a thriving center for arts and innovation. The Centre is now home to the film programs of Johns Hopkins University and Maryland Institute College of Art, The Baltimore Jewelry Center, Sparkypants Studios, The Impact Hub and The Center for Neighborhoods, a collaborative work space for nonprofits that serve Baltimore neighborhoods.
