After nearly a decade of design and planning by W and the project team, Baltimore’s Inner Harbor Water Taxi Terminal and USS Constellation Museum started construction in the fall of 2020. The new building’s base will be elevated to raise it out of the floodplain. The new building, designed by W, will provide access to the historic ship similar to the previous museum, but will be ADA (American Disabilities Act) compliant and more structurally sound. The museum and terminal are located on Pier 1, which is the epicenter of Baltimore’s harbor.
The new terminal “will function as the centerpiece of the Water Taxi and the City’s historic ships,” and will operate in partnership with the Water Taxi and Living Classrooms. Living Classrooms serve as stewards of Baltimore’s historic vessels, “and for the hundreds of thousands of people from around the world that visit them… this new facility will be fabulous and a game changer,” James Piper Bond, president and CEO of Living Classrooms, said.
