Coppin State University and Baltimore Heritage have submitted the building - possibly America's oldest orphanage - to the National Register of Historic Places, a move that Coppin Heights Community Development Corp Executive director Gary Rodwell said is meant to show they're "making a concerted effort to preserve this jewel."

Rodwell discussed their efforts in the May Urbanite and told the Brew that Coppin "currently remains committed to preserving the orphan asylum until such time that we can create a development plan" that makes sense.

"There has been some ambivalence about what our plans for the building were," admits Gary Rodwell, executive director of the Coppin Heights Community Development Corp., the university's nonprofit development arm, which is now overseeing the asylum.

...
Now Rodwell envisions some form of mixed-use development, combining commercial, office, and academic space. Its marketability could be bolstered by proximity to a MARC station and the planned Red Line transit project.

The building has since been structurally stabilized, but significant interior damage has already been done. Rodwell says a collapsed skylight and related water intrusions left the building "too dangerous" to give a reporter even a cursory look inside. "There are structural challenges that have to be met, but we think preservation architects can figure ways to address them," Rodwell says.

So what does Rodwell think should happen now to the magnificent hulking 137-year-old building, possibly the oldest orphanage in the United States?
"There has to be a plan with 40,000 square feet that are historic in nature...that's in concert with the University, neighborhood and the region," he said.
A small business incubator, a training center for specified job opportunities, senior housing, or a home for state or local agencies are all uses that Rodwell said he could imagine fitting with the personality of the space.
...
Coppin spends $8,000 to $10, 000 a month to keep the structure from further deteriorating, Rodwell said. Buildings have to be boarded up, the roof has collapsed during snow storms, and steel has been added in lieu of wooden support to "keep things together and up."
"Naturally given these times and finances...that's a pretty hefty commitment...so there have been times, prior to this last president coming on board, when Coppin has looked to remove the University from having to bear the brunt of that burden."
Now, though, Rodwell said, despite the challenges, current president Reginald S. Avery and Baltimore Heritage are committed to making sure this piece of Baltimore's cultural and architectural history is protected.
