The Lebow Clothing Factory building was designed as the machine shop for the Crown Cork and Seal Company, built in 1914-1915. The innovative construction of reinforced concrete (Architect Otto G. Simonson) has windows that cover more than 60% of the exterior (in contrast to the older CC&S building next door. The building was also air conditioned.
Lebow Bros. Clothing Company leased part of the building in 1950 and remained there until the company closed in 1985.
In 2011, Baltimore City Schools concluded a deal with private developers to spend $25 million to renovate the facility as an arts high school with a focus on non-visual arts.
Nice capture & beautiful building.
You're doing a great job documenting all of the interesting historical architecture in the area & I admire your work.
