The Rochambeau Apartments

Built in 1905, the Rochambeau Apartments once stood on the corner of Charles and Franklin Streets. The building was built by noted Baltimore architect Edward Glidden, who also designed the Washington Apartments on Charles Street in Mt. Vernon, the Furness House, and many other buildings in Baltimore. The Rochambeau was a contributing building in the Cathedral Hill National Register Historic District. It was also a truly iconic building along Baltimore’s historic Charles Street. The Archdiocese of Baltimore demolished the building in 2006 and intends to erect a prayer garden on the site.
