Seen: New Activity at Mount Vernon Mills No. 1 DevelopmentPosted: February 17, 2012
he lower portion of Hampden, which snakes along the Jones Falls River, has been reminiscent of a ghost town over the past few decades…until now. On Wednesday I noticed signs of life at Mount Vernon Mills No. 1, located in the 3000 block of Falls Rd in Hampden. The mill building, which sits at the corner of Falls Rd and Chestnut Ave is now surrounded by scaffolding and work to the facade has begun. The development, spearheaded by Terra Nova Ventures, is expected to contain 9,500 square feet of Restaurant space, 42,000 square feet of office, and 92 residential apartments.
