                     Middle East Urban Renewal Plan Rehabilitation

                     Design Guidelines


                     May 2020

                     Encourage the rehabilitation of properties and structures that allows for modern need, design, and the preservation of historic elements and addresses the scale, form and context of existing block.


                     Design additions to be compatible with the existing structure in massing, height, form, and scale.  Endeavor to place additions on a secondary elevation where possible.


                     Encourage the revitalization of commercial areas and properties in a way that preserves and supports the visual character and economic health of the district and allows for maintenance of district buildings and related sites in compliance with regulatory health and safety requirements.


A.  General Rehabilitation Guidelines


The guidelines in this section apply to all properties, zoning categories and uses within the Middle East Urban Renewal Plan area.

                     All exterior front and/or sidewalls that have not been wholly or partially resurfaced or built over, shall be repaired, cleaned or painted.  Brick walls shall be pointed where necessary.  Painted masonry walls shall have loose material removed and painted.  Patched walls shall match the existing adjacent surfaces as to material, color, bond, and joining.


                     Resurfacing of existing brick facades shall be implemented in accordance with standard brick modular brick work.  With the exception of rear and interior side walls where formstone has been removed, resurfacing with materials such as formstone, wood siding, structural glass veneer, aluminum and vinyl siding, etc. shall not be permitted.  Front or side walls may be resurfaced with stucco-like materials.


                     Unfinished, smooth-faced concrete is prohibited.  Smooth-faced concrete must be finished with approved materials.


                     Existing siding and unpainted formstone may remain if it is in good condition and in need of minimal repair.  It may not be painted.


                     Chimneys, elevator penthouses, or any other auxiliary structures on roofs requiring renovation shall meet all required zoning and building code requirements.  Any construction visible from the street or from other buildings shall be finished so as to be harmonious with other visible building walls.


                     Chimneys must be standard modular brick.


                     Foundations must be patched with like materials.                     


2.                     Windows and doors


                     All windows must be tight fitting and have sashes of proper size and design for the existing structure.


                     Sashes with rotten wood, broken joints, or broken or loose mullions or muntins shall be replaced.  All broken and missing windows shall be replaced.  All exposed wood shall be repaired and painted.


                     Replacement windows and doors must be of the same size and shape of the existing opening and fit within the structure’s existing, original openings.  Windows and doors that are fabricated with dimensions lesser than the structure’s existing openings are not allowed to be installed with panel surrounds that serve to alter existing, original openings.


                     Existing masonry openings may not be enlarged except to accommodate contemporary door dimensions or unless submitted construction documents illustrate the new enlarged openings as a component of the comprehensive design for the structure or structures.


                     Window and door openings in the front of the building shall not be filled or boarded unless otherwise required by the Baltimore City Code.


                     Dormer windows on roofs sloping toward the street shall be retained and repaired or replaced in an appropriate manner to preserve their original architectural design.


                     Special windows, such as bays, boxes and dormers, must be refurbished unless their condition shows that they are beyond repair.


3.  Trim


                     All structural and decorative elements shall be repaired or replaced to match as closely as possible, the existing materials and construction.  All cornices shall be made structurally sound, and rotted or weakened portions shall be removed and repaired or replaced to match as closely as possible, the existing cornice.  All exposed wood shall be painted.


                     Existing cornices that have been covered with aluminum or vinyl siding and are in good repair may remain.   Damaged or worn cornices must be repaired or replaced with trim that matches material and color of original component.  No new installations of siding to cover cornices are allowed.


4.                     Properties/yards/fencing


                     Mechanical Units:  Air conditioning units and other mechanical equipment must be screened from public view.


                     Accessibility Ramps on Residential Buildings: When accessibility ramps are used, they should be attached to the back or side of a residence.  Side ramps that are visible from the street should incorporate the same architectural vocabulary as front porches.

5.                     Additions/garages


                     Additions and garages visible from any street must be designed to address the scale and the materials of primary structure.  Smooth-faced concrete block that is not finished with approved materials is prohibited as a material for additions and garages.


B.                     Non-residential rehabilitation standards


Over and above the codes and ordinances of the City of Baltimore, the following additional standards shall be applied to all non-residential properties, whether occupied or vacant, within the Middle East Urban Renewal Plan area, including the East Monument Street Business Area.

                     Storefronts, entrances, lighting, sun protection, signage and other show window elements shall be designed to be compatible, harmonious and consistent with the architecture of the building and scale and character of the existing structures.


                     All exposed portions of security grilles and screens that are painted in normal practice and all portions that require painting to preserve, protect or renovate the surface shall be painted.  Non-metal grilles and screens shall be prohibited.


                     All new and existing screens and grilles over show windows parallel with streets must be constructed so they may be opened or removed, except grilles over transoms and narrow sidelights which may be non-opening are subject to the approval of the Department of Housing and Community Development.  Such screens and grilles shall be opened or removed during the normal business hours of that business.
