Top Stories: One-of-a-Kind Home for Sale in Canton, Riverside Row Home Accidentally Demolished, Rita St. Clair Auctioning Off Pieces of Collection

Our most-read piece this week was Cynthia McIntyre’s newest Hot House installment about an on-the-market, modern renovation of an old Canton row home that’s been conjoined inside with a neighboring warehouse. The result of the renovation is a pristine two-story, four-bedroom, four-bathroom home with a roof deck and a rare (for the neighborhood) two-car garage.

The project comes from the innovative minds of local developer Building Character, which specializes in contemporary-style transformations. The home sits on the border of Fells Point and Canton, positioning the lucky buyers who can afford its $849,000 price tag with plenty to enjoy in the surrounding neighborhoods.
