Brewers Hill Natty Boh Tower

Baltimore, MD

Developed by Obrecht Commercial Real Estate, Inc., the Natty Boh Tower was re-developed as a mixed-use building.

BKM provided complete central plant, core and shell design, and all tenant fit-out design for the entire building. The renovated building included a mini-storage tenant, daycare, offices, and residences on the upper floors. The project was designed in compliance with Maryland Historic Tax Credits regulations which, among other things, restricted the number of new openings (windows and louvers) that could be made in the façade and the amount of exterior wall that could have insulation applied to it. This project was designed to achieve LEED Silver with an additional 25 percent more energy savings in order to meet the standards of the new Maryland Green Building Tax Credit Program. The Natty Boh Tower was the first project to be designed under the HTC and the new Maryland Green Building Tax Credit Program, two rebate programs that are advantageous to the developer. The sustainable features included an energy efficient heat pump system, low flow plumbing fixtures, and a grey-water system, which utilized the existing brewery tanks for storage of water for all toilets and urinals.
