CK Commercial Attends Baltimore Community Lending Renovation Project UnveilingJune 30,2023
Last week CK Commercial attended the official kick-off of the Baltimore Community Lending (BCL) Headquarters renovation project in Baltimore, MD. BCL was joined by U.S. Senators Chris Van Hollen and Ben Cardin, who, in an effort to increase economic opportunities in disadvantaged communities, secured $1 million to support the renovation of BCL’s office headquarters and new Small Business Development and Resource center.
BCL’s mission is to “support the revitalization and strengthening of underserved communities throughout the Baltimore metro area through innovative and flexible financial assistance designed to promote community development.” The funding received will help further BCL’s mission to provide small business owners with the resources to gain access to numerous business development training and assistance opportunities.
“It takes a village to make the Business Development and Resource Center a reality. The village is the Federal, State, local government and all stakeholders who have come together so we can continue supporting small businesses for years to come,” Watchen Harris Bruce, President and CEO, Baltimore Community Lending.
The BCL project will include the renovation of over 17,000 SF of their new space on North Calvert Street in Baltimore, MD. The four-story building will be renovated to include a Training Center on the first level, Co-working and Business Development on the second level, and BCL offices and collaborative spaces will be included for the third and fourth levels.
The project is expected to start in July 2023, with an estimated completion of September 2023.
