Aviation Station

Taking Flight Towards a Cohesive Future.


The team at Blue Ocean has been hard at work with this project over the last 3 years, vetting the business plan and solving for various entitlement, government incentive, and environmental obstacles that previously existed. While the initial focus was tailored to mixed-use and sports/entertainment usage, in response to the current economic impacts related to COVID-19, as well as the sizable shift in market supply/demand, we have re-oriented our strategy to serve the logistics, warehousing, manufacturing, and flex sectors. Now poised to be one of the largest industrial hubs in Maryland, Aviation Station will offer immense employment and economic development opportunities for Eastern Baltimore County, and specifically, the Middle River, MD community.

Blue Ocean’s vision, recently covered by the NAIOP, is to repurpose this currently dormant site for businesses seeking a highly desirable location given its proximity to I95, I695, the Port of Baltimore and 800′ away from a MARC train station carrying passengers to and from Downtown Baltimore and Washington DC. With all approvals and incentives in place, we aim to quickly and efficiently complete the build-out and have the space tenant ready within the next 18 months.

History

Aviation Station, previously known as Middle River Depot, was originally commissioned in 1929 by aviation pioneer Glenn Martin and designed by famed architect Albert Kahn and Associates. Within this massive facility, the Glenn L. Martin Company (predecessor to Martin Marrieta and Lockheed Martin) designed more than 85 different aircraft, including the Martin B-26 Marauder bomber. Many airplanes produced here were outfitted with unprecedented innovations, including gun turrets, retractable landing gear, and rotating bomb bays.

The Vision

Blue Ocean saw the immense opportunity and potential in blending the deep history of this site with its seemingly unlimited future potential. The Vision for the property is twofold

Re-purpose the existing improvements to respond to market demands for industrial and logistics users while developing a long-term plan for modern commerce and flex space, creating new life in this thriving location.

Ultimately, we aim to curate a program that is complementary in nature, serving the tenants and patrons ultimately “living, working and playing” at Aviation Station.
