Baltimore gets new youth detention center

November 01, 2009 |

PSA-Dewberry is designing Baltimore’s $80 million downtown youth detention center. The five-story, 200,000-sf center will house youths who have been criminally charged as adults, and is the first phase of Maryland’s seven-phase plan to completely reconstruct the city’s downtown correctional campus. The center will house up to 180 youths in single-bed rooms in six housing units. Each unit will have activity space, a multipurpose room, a counseling room, and an officer’s station. A gymnasium, booking and intake center, and administrative and service spaces are also part of the center, which is targeting LEED Silver.
