Visions For Vacancies: 8 Maryland Avenue
A closer look at one vacant store front or building in the city.
Drive or walk around downtown Annapolis, and you will notice a surprising number of empty storefronts and buildings.
I've decided to post a series of articles entitled Visions for Vacancies that highlight these abandoned opportunities. I'll tell you where they're located and a little about the property.
Then, I’ll leave it up to you to share your thoughts on what you’d like to see there. I want to know what types of businesses you think belong in Annapolis.
This building is located at 8 Maryland Ave., and it sits just outside the U.S. Naval Academy's Gate 3 entrance. The three-story building was constructed in 1900 and boasts 13,926 square feet of unused space inside, according to the Maryland Department of Assessments and Taxation website.
In 2010, the city of Annapolis issued a permit to renovate the building, which it lists as a multifamily shell building.
The building strikes me as the perfect size and location for apartments or condos.
