MICA moves for­ward with Dol­phin Street build­ing

Baltimore Sun - - NATION & WORLD - — Sarah Gantz

The Mary­land In­sti­tute Col­lege of Art is in the process of de­mol­ish­ing a three-story build­ing at 100 Dol­phin St. in Bolton Hill to make way for a new cen­ter for tech­nol­o­gy­driven artists and de­sign­ers.

Con­struc­tion of the five-story, 25,000square-foot build­ing is ex­pected to be com­plete in Septem­ber 2017.

The build­ing will in­clude pro­to­typ­ing lab­o­ra­to­ries, sem­i­nar and pre­sen­ta­tion space, and MICA’s ex­ist­ing print equip­ment, ac­cord­ing to a project de­scrip­tion in­cluded in the fis­cal 2017 cap­i­tal bud­get anal­y­sis.

The state’s cap­i­tal bud­get for fis­cal 2017 in­cludes $4 mil­lion to sup­port de­sign and con­struc­tion. The school is ex­pected to match state in­vest­ments.

The new build­ing is de­signed by Bal­ti­more ar­chi­tec­tural firm GWWO.
