Hoen is an 86,000 square foot complex of interconnected buildings, constructed around 1900 by A. Hoen & Co., a world-renowned printer known for printing National Geographic maps, posters, cigar boxes, sheet music covers, and baseball cards. Vacant since 1981, Hoen was in a state of complete disrepair, with trees breaking apart the masonry walls, water damage, and subject to environmental contamination.

Cross Street Partners (CSP) saw Hoen as an opportunity to transform this historic building into a mixed-use community asset and uplift an entire neighborhood adjacent to one of the largest development projects in Baltimore City.

After its $37MM renovation, Cross Street Partners stepped into the role of property manager to handle the daily operations and tenant relations including placemaking, featuring  onsite events.

Hoen is now home to the following tenants
– Strong City Baltimore, a 50-year-old grassroots nonprofit that operates an adult learning center;
