Rising above the 60 acre site is 1.92 million square feet, comprised of a multi-story facility of major historical significance. Originally built in 1940 by the Glenn L. Martin Company (predecessor to Martin Marrieta/Lockheed Martin) and designed by famed architect Albert Kahn and Associates, Aviation Station was intended for the engineering and manufacturing of aircraft on a massive scale. Over time, the company successfully employed over 50,000 workers, building state-of-the-art war planes for the U.S. Government and Allies; most notably the B-26 Bomber/Marauder.
Located only minutes from major highway systems Interstate 95 and Interstate 695 , Aviation Station sits at the intersection of Maryland Route 43 and Eastern Boulevard, only 15 miles from Baltimore City and uniquely placed immediately adjacent to the MARC Commuter rail station currying passengers from Baltimore and Washington DC.
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.
We invite you to realize your business’s vision inside ours. Aviation Station offers a unique leasing opportunity in a one-of-a-kind space with deep historical roots and a creative vision for the future.
Since its acquisition of Aviation Station in 2018, Blue Ocean has made tremendous progress on the property – overhauling its aging infrastructure and building envelope systems. To date, Blue Ocean has invested over 6MM in new roofing systems, electrical services, and the expansion of loading dock areas. Continued progress is achieved daily on the renovation and rehabilitation front.
The project is well positioned to take advantage of the sizable shift in commercial real estate supply and demand drivers. With significant capabilities to offer businesses various options for space in the logistics, warehousing, manufacturing, and flex sectors, we expect that Aviation Station will find many suitors upon the completion of the rehabilitation.
Blue Ocean’s vision, recently covered by the National Association for Industrial and Office Parks (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.
Our business plan has been well-vetted and developed. We have solved for various entitlement, government incentive, and environmental obstacles that previously existed. 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.
