to the west on the right hand side of Grindall Street are some
of the first homes restored in 1975 as part of an interesting
plan for renovation developed by a young group named Streuver
Brothers and Eccles.Though
only in their mid-20ís, these three managed to convince the
Baltimore Federal Savings and Loan Association to lend them
money so they could begin work.Spending just three months on each house, within one
year they remodeled and re-sold 12 residences on Grindall.Today, there company is one of the most successful
commercial developers in Baltimore City with projects such as
Tide Point, the American Can Company (Canton) and the new
Phillips Seafood World Headquarters in Locust Point.
